Tessitura Serica Bevilacqua
The history of weaving in Venice began in 1499 when the name of Giacomo Bevilacqua, a weaver, appears on the list of patrons who commissioned a famous painting by the artist Mansueti. The transition from family business to company occurred in 1875 when Giacomo’s descendant Luigi Bevilacqua, together with his partner Giovanni Battista Gianoglio, acquired a building in Venice to create what would become one of Europe’s oldest textile mills.
Still today, the sounds of 18th century looms break the silence of the alleys in this corner of Venice where highly skilled masters produce something truly unique. The work is slow, yielding just a few centimeters a day, and the result is unique: the finest soprarizzo velvet and premium brocades, worldwide symbols of the excellence of Venetian textile arts.

Ongetta is a historical brand specialized in silk yarn twisting, which is a family-run activity since the first years of the twentieth century. Emanuele Ongetta, the owner’s grandfather, started to work at it first in Russia and China, and then began production in Italy, in a town called Ponte di Piave (TV).
The brand is engaged with its own suppliers in the silk production, starting from the selection of spinning mills and from the silkworm birth. The products are: twisted continuous raw silk yarns (wefts, crepe fabric, organdy, cordons, shantung), discontinuous silk yarns (schappe, bourette both of mulberry and tussah type), mixed yarns (silk plus cashmere, wool, cotton, linen, hemp, bamboo or synthetic fibres).
Ongetta, coherently with its mission and careful of market’s needs, decided to endorse Greenpeace’s Detox quality standard, and it is certified for the GOTS organic fibre production.
