VITALE BARBERIS CANONICO
Italian textiles since 1663
Vitale Barberis Canonico, committed to creating the finest fabrics for men's clothing, is one of the oldest wool mills in the world, driven by the passion of a family since 1663.
For over 350 years, we have been carrying out all the phases of wool processing in the plants of Pratrivero and Pray, in the heart of the Biella district, where the best water for textile production flows. The manufacturing of a product of excellence recognized worldwide needs more than 200 steps of cutting-edge machinery, a rigorous quality control process and the expertise of the people.
Our collections include over 5,000 variants, and each year we interpret creativity by combining Heritage, Innovation and Sustainability.
We publish our Sustainability Report every year to track our sustainability journey with increasingly ambitious goals.
