WEAVING EXCELLENCE DIARIES – Sampietro
Beside its beautiful landscapes, stunning villas and gardens, Lake Como is also worldwide famous for the production of high-end, elegant silk fabrics. Since 15th Century, indeed, these precious fabrics have been one of the most exported European products, playing a pivotal role for the economic development of Como’s textile cluster, in the North of Italy.
As for the creation of a work of art, silk fabrics do not only require technique, precision and manual skills, but also a great passion and the clear understanding that certain goals can be achieved only through the contribution of all. That’s the reason why Sampietro carefully chooses each one of its partners and suppliers, including Itema.
The longstanding partnership with Itema has accompanied Sampietro’s evolution over the last 40 years, with continuous support and cooperation to tailor-made each loom model to the Customer’ specific needs.
Even in such a difficult moment for the global economy, Sampietro decided to rely once again on Itema and invested in 12 sets of R95002, “an efficient and versatile weaving machines, the perfect combination of previous Itema machine models”, as described by Mr. Andrea Sampietro, CEO and Owner of the Company.
