Ermenegildo Zegna Cloth

The family-owned Ermenegildo Zegna fashion house's history stretches back to the late 1800s, when Angelo Zegna became the first in his family to go into the wool trade. His son Ermenegildo later led the company to become a renowned, dynamic family business.

In 1910 in Trivero, Italy, Ermenegildo started weaving wool on his own looms and producing his first cloth. His vision for the company was international from the start, so he designed his products and the Zegna production and promotion process as a whole with systematic innovations to serve this end. This vision meant that the company was fully vertically integrated from the very beginning, eventually becoming one of the most well-respected Italian family businesses.

In 1938, Zegna made its first export to America, and by 1945 it was exporting to forty countries. The company's owners have always kept in mind that the quality of their products can never be separated from a positive relationship with local people and communities. Ermenegildo Zegna was well aware that long-term success is tied to people's quality of life and the environment they live in.

That is why Trivero has had leisure facilities since 1938 - a library, gym, theater and public swimming pool. A few years after that, Ermenegildo built a health center and a preschool. He had thousands of trees planted during his lifetime.

In the 1960s Angelo and Aldo, sons of the company founder, continued to extend their product portfolio and expand into foreign markets. They completed the vertical integration of the company. In 1972 they fully launched their Made to Measure service.

By the 1990s, Zegna was a world-famous luxury fashion brand. In 1991 Zegna was the first luxury men's fashion brand to open a shop in China (Beijing).

Today the Ermenegildo Zegna Group is one of the most well-known family businesses in Italy. During the course of the 20th century, the name Zegna became synonymous with business pioneers, thanks to the business savvy and entrepreneurial spirit of the Zegna dynasty.

The company's philosophy is based on three principles: long-term objectives, family ownership to ensure continuity, and a sound ethical commitment enshrined in a corporate governance system.
