Lampas, damasks, brocades, framed in the historical Venetian headquarters, reveal the shininess and consistency of their texture in the soft folds.
For over 150 years and five generations Rubelli, founded in Venice in 1858, has represented excellence in the home textiles sector. The company is located in Venice, except for some of the production which has for some time now been carried out in the textile factory of Cucciago (Como). Thirty modern looms and four late-eighteenth-century hand-looms are used here to make very soft fabric called soprarizzo, a sort of "three-dimensional" velvet. Over the years the company has diversified its offer and ventured down new roads: exemplary are its special technical fibers, such as Travira Cs. This historical archive is precious for the company, which is often asked to do jobs where the philological aspect is of the utmost importance: for the Bolshoi in Moscow the Venetian company created a remarkable curtain in pure golden yarn. Alessandro Favaretto Rubelli is chairman of the company and his sons Nicolò and Andrea are its CEOs.
