Rubelli, fabrics from over time

Renowned around the world, Rubelli fabrics come from a small factory lost in the hills around Como. On the second floor of a beautiful 19th century building, in the village of Cucciago, Lorita Bellocco reproduces gestures from another time. It took her almost six months of training to synchronize the footwork and the handwork essential to the proper functioning of the 18th century weaving loom on which she produced unique pieces ordered by wealthy customers. “It costs around 3,000 euros per linear meter,” says Loredana di Pascale, marketing director.
