The family business of Ermenegildo Zegna started back in the end of the 1800s. Angelo Zegna was a watchmaker by trade and started weaving wool fabrics. He had a total of ten children. His last, Ermenegildo was born in 1892. He eventually took over what would become one of Italy’s finest fashion brands.
At 18 Ermenegildo founded the woool mill "Lanificio Zegna" in 1910, in the city of Trivero, near the Alpine town of Biella. He began to produce wool fabrics using only four looms. He decided at this point that these fabrics must be “the most beautiful in the world.”
Even today Zegna fabrics are considered one of Italy’s most highly acclaimed exports, exclusively identified internationally by a red seal.
Ahead of his time Zegna had international vision to seek out the best quality natural materials, directly from their country of origin. His remarkable design and production innovations were revolutionary as was his promotion of the brand. This vision eventually created a fully vertically integrated company in the 20th century. Zegna is considered one of Italy’s most highly acclaimed family based enterprises. From the fabrics to eyeglass frames,. the Zegna brand provides some of the best fashion and function available today.
