Linen, precious as the future
Ours it’s a story of passion, creativity and vocation for beauty, of know-how and attention to people and to our land. It is the story of Italian flair that has come to be synonymous with excellence throughout the world.
We spin and ennoble linen with age-old experience, unique knowledge and overriding passion to create a product of exceptional quality and beauty.
We are innovators by tradition. We not only design and create yarns that are always new and lend themselves to the most surprising uses, but we also design cutting-edge textile machinery to manufacture them to perfection.
Working every day with the most sustainable natural fibre in the world makes us feel at one with it. We share an innate and deep respect for the environment and the planet and we help build a better future for the generations to come.
The history of Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale is a narrative of unparalleled knowledge and boundless love for linen and hemp, and for the beauty they bring to our lives.
We manufacture our own spinning machines, recognized for their unique features and the consistent quality of yarn they produce, unparalled in the sector. They allow us to find new solutions and to foresee and realize your ideas
