Set in the valley by the Sesia river, the Italian alps looming grandly in the distance, Borgosesia certainly doesn’t look like your typical manufacturing town. But despite the quiet beauty and clean mountain air, this is a city of industry. For generations Borgosesia has remained on the forefront of industrial advancement without neglecting quality and nuance. Time there stands still on the practices and processes required to craft truly enduring product, yet the producers continue to look ahead, embracing modern technology like solar energy and digital modeling. The city is home to a varied set of creators, whose knowledge strikes a careful balance between tradition and innovation - a harmony that continually informs our own designs.
