1850


In January 30th 1850, the Company "F.lli Antongini & Comp." was founded with headquarters in Borgosesia. The corporate mission was the same that still appears in Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia S.p.A. statute: "worsted wool spinning". Discover more

1860


In 1860, with a 510,000 Italian liras promissory note, the Company became involved in one of the most important chapter of the Italian Risorgimento: the note was given as security to the ship owner Rubattino from Genoa for the rental of two ships, the "Piedmont" and the "Lombard" , on which Giuseppe Garibaldi embarked for the famous expedition of the Thousand.

1870


In 1870 the new factory on the left bank of the Sesia river was inaugurated and on March 1 st 1873 the limited Company "Manifattura Lane Borgosesia" was established. Discover more

1876


In 1876, in the context of the emerging textile industry of the Biella district, Giuseppe Botto Poala, founder of the Botto family, opened in Vallestrona the Botto Poala spinning Mill. This initiative was the starting point of a business evolution that ended with its acquisition by Zegna Baruffa in 2009. Discover more

1924


During the industrial fervor due to the first World War, the "Manifatture Lane Borgosesia" develops and later, in 1924, the two brothers Alfredo and Albino Zegna opened the "Filatura A. Zegna", with plants in Valle Mosso and in Lessona. The production is oriented towards very creative fancy yarns and the introduction of the first worsted angora worldwide. In the 60s / 70s, the successors Giorgio and Giulio Zegna drove the growth of the Company with a strong impulse on product innovation and customer service. The Company acquires the new name "Zegna Baruffa s.a.s.". Discover more

1927


Giacomo Borsetti, after various experiences in the textile market, took over a spinning mill in Chiavazza, near Biella, and in March 28 1927 founded the "Filatura di Chiavazza". The Company rapidly grew due to a high-quality approach to the production of woollen yarns, that at that time were monopolized by English spinning mills. The Company’s success led, in 1947, a move to the new and bigger plants in Vigliano Biellese. Discover more

Our quality foundations

Quality checks are made on all our production cycles with the help of our technicians and state of the art instruments.

The color research

For every dyeing technique, top dye, yarn dye or fiber dye, it is possible to create any color scheme, also on customer specific request.

Every year, in addition to the new colors of the collection, we study, specifically for our customers new color formulas, performing accurate spectro-photometric analysis on reference sample to guarantee a perfect color reproduction. In our dyeng house lab we study about 5,000 colors for yarn dyeing and top dyeing, some of them exclusive and customized according to specific customer requirements. Each color is tested and guaranteed. The Chiavazza dyeing lab instead, is specialized specializes in colors for flock dyeing for carded yarns.

 

“In pursuit of color” is also the title of a short film made in 2013 and set completely in the industrial areas of the plant in Borgosesia. The color, the protagonist of our business, becomes the object of desire of an art spy story. Watch the trailer
