Pontoglio Velvet Custom Blazers

In 1883, a Milanese textile family called the Cantonis, in collaboration with Giulio Saccanaghi, started operating a textile factory on the banks of the Oglio river.

Pontoglio maintains their unique heritage, but they have been forward-thinking with technology, seeking modern ways to craft velvet.
