THE ALBINI FAMILY LEGACY9th August 2019
Founded in 1876 and now in its fifth generation of family ownership, the fabric mill Albini has always plied the same trade, producing top quality shirting fabrics from raw cotton, wool and linen.
Albini Group president Silvio Albini says the company is special in its manpower, access to raw materials and control of the entire fabric-making process.
"Good fabric starts from very good raw materials. We use cotton, linen and wool grown in Egypt, France and Italy, and then we own the spinning, dyeing, weaving and finishing of the final product."
"You really have to follow these things with a lot of commitment, and dare I say, passion. Quality, innovation and design are at the heart of what we do, and this is the same for those who buy our fabrics."
The company has been supplying its natural fabrics to Rodd & Gunn for almost two decades.
"Rodd & Gunn is a very innovative company, an equitable company and an ethical company - they appreciate excellent quality and stand for good values like we do."
