NICKI COLOMBO

’Tessitura La Colombina’ was born in 1948 after a process of transformation from ’Filanda di seta’ (Silk Spinning Mill) in weaving of wool fashion product producer.
Already at the beginning of the last century the Colombo family had undertaken the processing of silkworms in Brianza (Villa Romano near Inverigo).

The farmers cultivated mulberry trees with which they feed the bugs; then all the cocoons were brought to the mill, where Mr. Angelo Colombo, thanks to his experience, was evaluating the quality of the product. These were then washed and spun by, so called, ’spinners’ and then sold to the textures.
In the 50s, the company acquired hand frames (Historic 1800) for a more artisanal production of wool yarn, where Giuseppe Colombo, began the third generation business. Giuseppe had specialized in the fashion accessories, using the colors his distinguish method: pre-dyed yarns masterfully coupled in drawings and carvings designs.

The connection with the homeland Lombardy has never been abandoned and resumed, in the late ’80s, trading with Como, evaluating, and choosing, the best silks to manufacture and sell. The fourth generation is then starting taking over under the direction of Giuseppe and his son, Mario, with the aim of being recognized in the fashion accessories business.
The company develops with its own brands scarves, gloves, hats, bags, coats, always looking for trends.

The 100% Cashmere fiber is the top quality material the company has transformed into soft woman and man knitwear.
The company also collaborates with leading companies in the fashion industry craft, offering a complete service, from production to finished garment.
