Wool is telling who we are
We are one of the leading Italian manufacturers of yarns, always focusing on sustainability and innovation, and committed to promoting Italian know-how in the world
We were founded in 1900 and in over 100 years of history we have given life to a project that has chosen merino wool and fine fibres as cornerstones, as well as quality, innovation and sustainability.
To define us are a solid competence built over the years, a tenaciously Italian know-how and an international outlook that have allowed us to make our products travel around the world.
We are proudly tied to our history, but always oriented towards the future; we promote and enhance our land, but we are projected into the world as demonstrated by our offices located in New York, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Osaka; we make the Biellese wool textile tradition the springboard for developing new paradigms that favour the growth of our sector.
Research is what leads us, and attention to the environment is a responsibility as well as an ethical duty. For this reason, we make choices and investments that are consistent with this philosophy: elements that affect both the structure of our company, a rare example of industrial archaeology, and our methods of processing yarns, as well as the certifications confirming our commitment and our vocation to sustainability.
We are not scared of experimenting; looking for innovative solutions that allow us to improve our products and services is among our priorities, for which we constantly allocate resources.
Opening up to new projects is a stimulus we do not wish to give up, thanks to collaborations with international partners with whom we share visions and objectives.
Our strength is the people, their skills and knowledge, their passion and resilience that allow us to continue to develop unique products, which are our identity.
If our love for a fibre that has no equal in characteristics and qualities – merino wool – is what supports us, what characterises us instead is the combination of Heritage & Innovation which finds its pinnacle in our Historical Archive, one of the largest in Europe.
Since July 2022, our philosophy was shared by Indorama Ventures (IVL), a Thai Group among the leading petrochemical producers in the world, with a global manufacturing footprint across Europe, Africa, Americas and Asia Pacific. With 24.000 employees worldwide, the Company is listed in the Dow Jones Emerging Markets and World Sustainability Indices (DJSI). The acquisition by IVL represents a significant step forward for the development of our company which, while maintaining the historicity of its brand and the strong bond with the territory, has opened to projects in an international key.
