The Zegna Wool Mill founded in 1910, has been the backbone of the company’s success and is renowned internationally for the world’s finest textiles. Four generations of the Zegna family have led the success in textiles, through innovation, carefully balancing science with nature and craftsmanship with technology.
The complete production process is carried out by Ermenegildo Zegna – from raw material selection to finishing. Commitment to quality and the use of modern technology to back up artisan craftsmanship is the living tradition linking past, present and future.
Over the last hundred years, the Lanificio has pioneered sophisticated men’s fabrics to become lighter, softer, more refined and with an improved performance and functionality. Consequently, new fabric standards have been set and new construction methods have emerged in the luxury men’s tailoring and casual industries.
The importance of selecting the best natural fibres directly from the markets of origin, has been the cornerstone of Zegna’s pre-eminence in the luxury fabric market. A positive and fair relationship with the communities, regions and countries was essential for the success and for the constant improvement of fibres.
Today Zegna is noted in the world for being one of the most important buyers of the best natural fibres.
