Publisher's description: When quality and style become a trademark. The family run business Rivolta Carmignani has been synonymous with top quality for decades. Founded in 1867, it specialized in the manufacturing and marketing of personalized linen for hotels and restaurants. This book tells the story of the company founded by Leopoldo Rivolta in the Brianza area of Lombardy, Italy. Today the company is run by the fifth generation which continues the family's legacy of taking special care over the yarns, textiles, and weaves, thus ensuring the greatest enduring quality. Focusing on the major events following the construction of the factory at Macherio in the second half of nineteenth century, the book highlights the creation of bed linen and tablecloths whose designs echoed the motifs of historical styles like art nouveau and art deco. It also celebrates fashion designers such as Roberta di Camerino and Marchesa Olga di Gresy and dwells on the successes in recent years in the new markets of North America, the Middle East, and Asia.
