The Ermenegildo Zegna Group was founded in 1910 in Trivero, a small town in the Biella Alps by Ermenegildo Zegna.
The young entrepeneur strove to create high quality fabrics for men's clothing and his strategy was focused on the selection
of the best raw materials from their markets of origin, innovation in product and in the production process and promotion of the brand.
The founder's sons lead the company into the ready-to-wear market with a line of men's clothing aimed at the top end of the market,
followed gradually by knitwear, accessories and sportswear.
