Taroni, one of the oldest silkweaving mills in Como, a company famous throughout the world as synonymous with luxury, elegance and quality of its fabrics.
The company was founded in 1880 thanks to Amedeo Taroni, a talented weaver and artist, who left traces of his creativity in the books of a valuable archive, jealously preserved and still consulted by his heirs as a source of inspiration.
In 1999, the heir, Giampaolo Porlezza, hands over the company to Michele Canepa, who takes control of the mill preserving the heralded Taroni tradition.
Michele Canepa’s long experience stems from having started working in his father’s textile company, carrying on a family weaving tradition of over two centuries, where he had the privilege to learn the technical intricacies of textiles by great masters.
His son Maximilian, CEO and Creative Director, is now dedicated to bringing TARONI up to speed with the modern world while still maintaining its long-standing traditions.
Our production is 100% Made in Italy.
