History

Our roots date back to 1924 when Mario and Carlo Ormezzano founded the Lanificio Fratelli Ormezzano in Valle Mosso.

They had a clear vision: change the way one works worsted wool yarn, in order to produce innovative fabrics for menswear.

They started designing fashionable fabrics at a time when all the competitors were focused on plain ones.

From ornate jackets to suits, their modern interpretation became their call to fame.

The company grew through generations, constantly evolving the original concept until the beginning of the 1970’s, when the Lanificio Fratelli Ormezzano tested and introduced linen and cotton yarns into its production.

This step represented an important turning point where the new project would mesh seamlessly into the historical one thus solidifying the Lanificio Fratelli Ormezzano label to be recognized in years to come.

Today we have an enthusiastic and committed team in place that continue to design and produce every single swatch with the same passion of the founders.
