Founded in 1953 in Chieri near Turin, in a textile area as ancient as the Middle Ages, the company now manufactures jacquard and dobby fabrics in natural fibres for furnishing and decoration, width cm 145 and 290. Only medium- and high-quality fabrics, woven with noble natural yarns such as Egyptian cotton, silk and linen. Jacquard items are matelassé, lampas, damask and fabrics in pre-finished cotton. Recently, Tessitura Pertile developed an important collection for the contract market based on flame-retardant fibres as Trevira CS and its success is due to the particular weaving techniques and to the specific finishing process applied. In 2006 Tessitura Pertile obtained the ICEA certification for the production of fabrics in organic cotton.
