COMPANY
Creating together, side by side. Since 1925 main aim of our job is to make the simple daily gesture to choose a special shirt a genuine pleasure, refreshed every day. Creativity, dedication to the product and customer service are characteristics that cannot be improvised. The story of Canclini Tessile started over 80 years ago, in 1925, when the company was set up as part of the silk industry in the Como area. The first generational change took place in the Sixties. The outstanding experience acquired in working with a precious and luxury fibre like silk together with the tenacity and laboriously bard work that are typical of the genuine Como entrepreneurship led the family to abandon the silk sector for cotton in the Sixties. This proved to be an inspired decision since the fabrics, in the following years, began to be exported to German and French markets. At the end of the Eighties, the offices were moved to the current location in Guanzate and the second generational change took place. The business received new impetus with the purchase of cutting edge machines and the installation of new semiautomatic warehouse. Today, thanks to its passion for work, dynamism, constant innovation and creativity, the company is one of the leading reference brands in the sector of high quality shirting fabrics. Canclini has reached its current position as a reference point for quality, styling, service, research and innovation in the production of Italian shirtings because its inherent passion has permitted it to achieve a dream. In a sector subject to increasingly rapid change and variations in style, Canclini has set itself certain objectives for the future.

PHYLOSOPHY
Canclini is aware of this responsibility, not only in terms of production processes but also in terms of utilisation of natural resources. This commitment is shared with all those who work in our various locations and everyone in the textile industry. Our fabrics conform to the quality standards requested by the market and have Okotex quality certification, which ensures that the products do not contain substances that are damaging to human health and provides the end-user with guarantees regarding their human-ecological quality. Canclini’s philosophy has always included the social dimension with the founding and running of the "Un Sorriso in più” (“An extra smile") association. This is a non-profit organisation that implements projects such as assistance to old people in rest homes who have no family ties, support to juveniles in difficult family situations and distance adoption of children. In adopting these objectives, the association emphasises the importance of quality of life, setting itself ethical objectives – development, progress, protection of the individual against abuse, exploitation and manipulation.

THE MAKING OF

HOW WE WORK TO CREATE
THE PERFECT FABRIC

It is the first step to evaluate the street to go, which yarns to select, which colors to choose, for which graphics and for which constructions. A research which goes beyond fashion, because it looks at the world all over around: with an expert eye we watch the catwalks, but also shops and small open markets; we observe cool hunters and the most popular blogs, but also common people; we study the different innovations and tendencies also in art, cooking, cinema….in one word, only a particular sensibility for this all allows us to draw the guidelines of our collections

We study the structure of new fabrics, we design the graphics of different articles and we create the colors shades. All this not only for the seasonal collections, but also and foremost for the exclusives of single clients; a team working involving our style department, the sales force and the designers of the fashion brands and maison, which allow the making of original fabrics, studied especially for them.

From 60/1 to 300/2, going through 80/1 compact : the choice among the best yarns is a crucial moment, then for this reason we only purchase the best cottons in the world, both in quality and innovation terms. We pay high attention to the proper spinning phase, because only a precise combing and torsion can create those paramount yarns able to give us the best color appeal, the perfect quality of white and a particular pleasantness of touch. The yarns purchased are electronically checked in order to eliminate all imperfections and contaminations and they are made ready for the yarn dyeing phase.

The cones are dyed in the selected colors, with machineries able to support the different yarns quantities and, once dyed, they are carefully checked in order to verify the correct shade.

Since ever, we perform with the most precise attention and the highest mastery the warping phase, which is needed to make the yarns parallel and put them on the beam: we believe that this is a crucial point in order to make later on a flawless weaving. We use warping machines selected among the state of the art devices, but also warping machines for short meters, called drum sample warping machines.

The weaving is the art of building a fabric: it is the result of mixing of warp yarns with weft yarns. We use more than one hundred and ten proprietary looms, all cutting edge generation, besides those belonging to our own historical partners. They are rapier looms and jacquard looms, in order to allow us to meet the uttermost level of market complexity. Since ever, we melt tradition and modernity, thanks to the use of highly technological machines and highly qualified personnel; we also have conscientious procedures aimed to complete a rigorous control of each single meter of grey fabric before it gets through the finishing.

Just like weaving is the hearth of fabrics, finishing is its soul! Through the finishing, indeed, personality and shine are added to the fabric. This result is reached with the bleaching and mercerizing, with the first process it is reached the desired shade of white, while the second modifies the cotton particle, giving it its own special shine. Beside all this, we make all those operations that can be done on a fabric in order to improve its appearance, its touch and its characteristics. These phases, called, finishing, can be for example raising, brushing or chintzing; on the base of the need, there are also special easy care or no iron treatments. We believe this to be a very delicate and complex phase, then we have chosen a deep and close collaboration with our finishing in order to assure the best results.

This phase is not a simple packaging: it allows us especially to be able to check every single meters before it is delivered to our clients.

The latest control is done on the finished fabrics internally by the quality laboratory, given that quality is one of our paramount values.

Since several years we have broadened our offer, studying special fabrics, such as velvets, air-tex, jersey, piquet or plissè, which require specific manufacturing and finishing. We also have printed and coated fabrics, which are specifically prepared during the finishing phase to undergo the next manufacturing process. More precisely, the printing can be traditional printing (with cylinders), including etching “lexus” as well, in order to have the shirting classic designs, or inkjet, for the most complex and colored graphics. We study all over designs, but also engineered or pannels on the base of the different requirements. Last but not least, we can arrange traditional printing and discharge printing, and pigment printing as well, in order to have double effects that gives a very particular characteristics.

CULTURE

SMALL AND PRECIOUS FRAGMENTS OF TEXTILES FROM DISTANT CULTURES: ICONOGRAPHY, ANCIENT EXAMPLES, WORN BY THE PASSAGE OF TIME BUT EVIDENCE OF ANCESTRAL POETIC SKILLS

ART AND COLLECTING

People throughout history have always considered weaving to be an expression of their own particular culture. The ancient movements of interweaving the warp and the weft conceal a culture, an ethos, imagination, enthusiasm, optimism: the myriads of different ways in which people express themselves. Canclini has decided to promote and support cultural activities linked to this sector because creating a fabric is like entering a culture, a world of relationships, poetry, human creativeness.
For Canclini, collecting ancient and modern artefacts is a concrete way of keeping this memory alive.

SCHOOLS

Canclini’s passion for textiles is also evident in its support for initiatives linked to fashion and design schools in general. Canclini has been collaborating for several years with the IED and Marangoni Institutes in Milan and with certain British schools like the Central Saint Martin’s School. This collaboration permits the students to express themselves freely and come into contact with a dynamic pro-active company, while the company has the possibility of experimenting with new sources of inspiration and nourishing a hotbed of talents.

CANCLINI TESSILE S.P.A. LAUNCHED WITH THE PRESTIGIOUS SEAT OF THE MILAN FOUNDATION STELLINE EXHIBITION ``BE YOU CARD - 100 WIRES FROM ARTIST COLLECTION OF FAMILY CANCLINI``.

EVENTS

Canclini celebrated its eightieth birthday in 2005, together with the textile machines, in particular the loom, a machine that has always been part of the company. In collaboration with the Milan Science and Technology Museum, an event was organised in January 2005 entitled “Men and geniuses of the Italian textile industry. From the loom of Leonardo to the made in Italy” and a book was presented which was intended as a tribute to the past and a stimulus for the future, based on the great opportunity that the Made in Italy label represents.

This event was under the patronage of the Italian Chamber of Fashion, the Region of Lombardy, the Province of Milan, the Municipality of Milan and Assolombarda. The market is constantly evolving and Canclini makes every effort to study it and identify the changes and the opportunities.

In June 2004, during the Pitti fashion show, it organised a meeting on the subject “Goodbye Fashion? How the fashion system must change to concentrate on the future” with one of the most famous American sociologists, John Naisbitt, Gian Mario Borney, Director of the Strategy and Marketing Department of Werner International Management Consultants and Flavio Sciuccati, a Partner of Ambrosetti and lecturer at the Bocconi university.
