Linen, precious as the future
Our production plant at Villa d’Almè is home to the world’s most important Linen Research and Development Center. A hub of unique excellence, where new, innovative and extremely beautiful yarns are designed and manufactured, as well as cutting-edge linen and hemp and textile machinery with which to make the yarns themselves.
One hundred and fifty years of boundless love for linen. One hundred and fifty years of passion, care and dedication to the noblest fibre in the world, with which we have written astonishing pages of our history: from the invention of linen for knitwear to the first 100% linen yarn made as it used to be made in the last century, from yarns in intimate blend with wool, silk, cashmere and cotton to the first stretch linen with Corespun technology.
Over 150 years, we have written so many stories with linen.
