In 1945 the first unit production was born in Leffe, thanks to the installation of a weaving to create covers and bedcovers

In the 1970s the business expanded to a new production site of about 4,000 square meters and also added new lines of spinning, weaving and finishing for covers

In 1963 a spinning mill was added
