OUR COMPANY OVER TIME
Silk twisting has always been associated with Ongetta.
Our family started operating within the silk industry at the beginning of the 1900s, funding the first silk twisting productive plant in the 1930s. During the years, merging craftsmen abilities with research and innovation, we sided the production of silk discontinuous and mixed yarns to our core business: silk continuous filaments. In 2000, we transferred our productive sites in the new, larger plants. Our company has been the first to enter into the GOTS panorama, obtaining this certification in 2013. In the meantime, we developed and widened our expertise with fabrics. We are now able to provide a wide range of both 100%silk and mixed fabrics to our customers.
