A history spanning sixty years
in the production of technical and fashion fabrics
Tessile Fiorentina, a story of intuition and determination that begins with Mario Becagli
The idea of Tessile Fiorentina was born in 1958 during a trip to the USA. The same year, Mario and Piero Becagli with a third partner founded Tessile Fiorentina, a company that was the first to bring the production of synthetic fur on the new Wildman circular looms to Italy.
The first plant of Tessile Fiorentina included a park of only 6 circular machines and 7 workers capable of producing 540 meters of fabric per day. Thanks to the determination and high manufacturing quality, the company soon became a reference point in the Italian and international textile market.
From a small retouch, a great revolution
Diversifying and expanding the production line with the introduction of boiled wool, the Eighties saw Tessile Fiorentina industry as a pioneer manufacturer of fleece fabrics.
The fleece, thanks to specific technical characteristics that make it resistant to adverse weather conditions, is a real innovation. Tessile Fiorentina immediately realizes its potential and specializes in its production, thus managing to establish itself on world markets.
In the following years, tradition and know-how lead to a further expansion of production, introducing coated, “coupled” and imitation leathers.
Since 1958, always looking
to the future
