Fabbrica Tessile Bossio
When it comes to Italian craftsmanship, the region of Calabria has a lot to offer.
From intricate lacework to handmade ceramics, the artistry of this southern Italian region is second to none.
And when it comes to textiles, one family-owned business stands out above the rest: Fabbrica Tessile Bossio.
Located in the small town of Calopezzati, in the province of Cosenza, the Fabbrica Tessile Bossio has been producing high-quality textiles for over 50 years.
The company specializes in weaving fine linens and cottons, using traditional techniques and the finest materials sourced from Italy and beyond.
The history of Fabbrica Tessile Bossio dates back to the 19th century when the Bossio family started producing traditional Calabrian textiles.
Today, the company is still run by the Bossio family, and they continue to uphold their commitment to producing high-quality fabrics using traditional techniques and materials.
The Ginestra fabric
One of the signature fabrics produced by Fabbrica Tessile Bossio is the "ginestra" fabric, which is made from a blend of silk and linen.
This fabric is known for its durability and versatility, and it can be used for a variety of purposes, including upholstery, drapery, and clothing.
Another popular fabric produced by Fabbrica Tessile Bossio is the "zibellino" fabric, which is made from pure silk.
This luxurious fabric has a soft and silky texture, and it is often used for high-end clothing and accessories.
Fabbrica Tessile Bossio, the collection
In addition, Fabbrica Tessile Bossio produces their collection of handwoven tablecloths and napkins.
These textiles are made using a unique weaving technique that creates a subtle, irregular pattern that is both elegant and rustic.
The company also produces a range of towels, bed linens, and even handbags, all of which showcase their commitment to quality and craftsmanship.
One of the unique features of Tessitura Ginestra Bossio is its commitment to sustainability.
In fact, the company sources its materials locally whenever possible, and all of its products are made using environmentally friendly processes.
