Home Zegna - Italian Series Collection
The company was founded in 1910 by Ermenegildo Zegna. At the age of 18 he founded the Lanificio Zegna (wool mill) and what was to become one of Italy’s best known dynamic family business. He had a dream that he would make, in his own words, “the most beautiful fabrics in the world.”
A FAMILY BUSINESS
The company continues to be family-run and is led by Gildo as CEO; Paolo is Chairman, Anna is Image Director and President of Fondazione Zegna, and Benedetta is Talent Manager. The group has three principles: setting long-term objectives; maintaining family ownership to ensure continuity; and following a sound ethical commitment enshrined in a rigorous corporate governance system. These ensure that the company stays true to the founder's vision while ensuring it continues to innovate in a fast-changing business.
 
FROM SHEEP TO STORE: THE WHOLLY INTEGRATED SUPPLY CHAIN

By the early 1980s this vision had been realised in a fully vertically-integrated company in wool production. Zegna has close control over each part of its supply chain: owning everything from a farm in Australia to mills in Italy, fabric cutting houses in Switzerland through to the boutique stores where its fabrics are sold across the globe.

Unusually for a menswear brand, Ermenegildo Zegna is completely vertically integrated, helping it oversee the highest quality: from the pasture the sheep graze on to the final buttonhole detail on a made to measure suit.
