Weaving: textile weaves and our woven labels

During the 37th edition of Milano Unica, the international trade fair is a landmark for fabrics and accessories in the fashion industry. We have designed our stand on the concept of the weave.

The weave viewed as the convergence of tradition and innovation, two factors that distinguish us as an artisan company with a strong propensity for change. The weave viewed as a confrontation between the generations in our family; finally, the weave amidst the threads of both warp and weft that, depending on the processes, make up the textile weave, which creates and characterizes our labels.

The textile weave, a focus

The term weave refers to the type of fabric to be created, defined on the basis of weaving and, subsequently, the types of weave created. 
Weaves are essential for woven labels. They allow to focus on either the entire product or a detail; e.g., the logo of the clothing brand to enhance its prominence and distinctive traits.


Background effects are numerous, from the simplest to the most complex.


This is the simplest weave, created by alternating weft and warp threads. The result is a checked effect resembling a chessboard.


The design is characterized by a striking resemblance to the footprints of hen. It is a symbol of retro elegance. Moreover, this versatile transversal motif is often used in both men’s and women’s clothing.


Also known as twill (diagonal), in this weave the warp yarns bind the wefts together in a diagonal pattern.
The resulting fabric is soft and adapts easily to garments, enhancing comfort. In addition to its use in tailoring, it is also increasingly used for technical clothing.


Derived from the addition of ligatures on consecutive threads and wefts to the plain weave, it can be understood as an expanded canvas. Just as reps can be either regular or irregular, the panama weave gives a final squared effect defined by the two-by-two interlacing of warp and weft threads. In label creation, we use it to give a rustic touch to the accessory.

Canellé or cannetté

It is a rep weave that, being much thicker than the warp, creates a raised ribbed fabric. 
It is usually the choice for casual and sportswear.


The weave is made by reversing the direction of the diagonals at intervals to aesthetically imitate ears of wheat.


The weave is made up of a hexagonal grid of cells, reminiscent of the namesake honeycomb texture.
It is frequently found in fabrics and, consequently, also in matching labels used for household linen.

Grois Grain

The final effect of this warp rep, obtained from the plain weave, is a series of vertical ribs with a glossy colour, which are more visible due to the greater number of warp threads. The pattern is taken up either as a decorative accessory or as a closing ribbon.


Alternating coloured wefts yield a checkered design with an elegant and refined appearance.
