At the dawn of the twentieth century, Silvio Mandelli, assisted by his brother Giovanni, continued the family business established by his father Emilio and his uncle. Besides producing and selling wine, the two brothers also started collecting discontinuous silk materials from local reeling mills in northern Brianza and Bergamo (Italy) as well as in the Milan area. After an initial selection process, they carefully controlled and prepared the materials before reselling them on the market.
After more than a century, thanks to the meticulous work of Silvio’s sons
Giovanni and Erminio, and now in its third generation, our company, and has focused on promoting, consolidating and innovating our commercial relations and production activities in Italy and especially abroad.
Our goal is to encourage the use of discontinuous silk fiber in many different fields, besides the customary and always important textile industry, through the creation of networks and structures for studying, providing information about and promoting the outstanding features of this wonderful fiber.
