CERRUTI 1881 HISTORY


Antonio Cerruti together with two brothers and a cousin found the company, buy the mill and gives rise to the activity on the banks of the river Cervo where the company nowadays is still situated. Following a vocation still pursued, they turn to serious production of innovative and quality textiles. Soon the factory is enlarged and more modern spinning and weaving machinery is put into action in the large rooms, already lit by electric light, a rare event in those days.

Silvio Cerruti, Antonio Cerruti’s son, manages the company together with his uncle Quintino, concerning himself personally with the quality and development of the collections. There follows a phase of consolidation of the prestigious positions gained on the markets, in particular those in South America and the Middle East, while the work of modernizing the spinning, weaving and dyeing plants continues.
