Furnishing fabrics Rubelli
The Rubelli collection contains over 6000 textile documents dating from the end of the 15th to the first half of the 20th century. Over the centuries, in addition to documents of European origin, documents from the East, Africa and the Americas have also been included. The fabrics in the archive represent the main source of creative ideas for the new collections.
The current weaving mill for the production of fabrics is that of Cucciago, in the province of Como, which was the nineteenth-century Zanchi weaving mill. Here are three original eighteenth-century hand looms, perfectly functional, which still allow the production of handmade soprarizzi and precious silk velvets today.
Rubelli damasks, brocades, lampas and velvets represent the excellence of furnishing fabrics.
The main source of the Rubelli collection is represented by the vast historical archive of fabrics, which houses over seven thousand textile documents and three thousand drawings and sketches.
Looking to the future and to sustainability, the historic company has also developed a collection of fabrics with technical yarns of natural and certified origin.
