Our company has reached successfully the third generation of family ownership and management and we have seen many changes in the textile field; changes that are in continuous evolution.

The ‘60s and ‘70s have seen an unprecedented growth of Italian textile industry. In these years Italy was taking advantage of the lower costs against Germany, France and England, to develop a big textile industry.
