Tessitura Monti produces world-class fabrics used by many of the top shirt-making houses. Italian fabric finishes are simply second to none, and Herman Bros & Co. are proud to bring this level of shirting fabric to our customers. With origins from 1911, the company has over a century of history in fabric production. Based near Treviso in northern Italy, the company draws on inspirations from nearby Carnia in the Italian Alps, where founder Giorgio Monti and his forefathers brought their history in fabric production from.
The story of this company involves humble beginnings, with founder Giorgio producing workshop quality fabrics in his home which he sold on public holidays. Due to his natural talent and entrepreneurial spirit he oversaw rapid growth, and in 1911 his three sons Evaristo, Venerio and Bruno officially founded the Monti Brothers Company. Relying on Bruno's experience as a machinist, the company originally started with twenty hand-operated looms and three automatic looms, employing fifteen workers and another fifteen home weavers. It is this growth and drive that continues to shape the company.
Tracing its history back five generations, Tessitura Monti aims to be to be the undisputed reference point in shirt-making textiles in the world market. The company has historical archives of over one million production samples, and is known for its unique designs which are often contemporary yet classical.In
The hallmarks of the company's fabrics include the soft and sumptuous touch of the fabrics, and the body of the double-twisted threads of long-fibre Egyptian cotton. All fabrics offered by Herman Bros & Co. from Tessitura Monti are skilfully woven in Italy.
S.I.C. TESS, another name synonymous with outstanding shirting quality with origins from 1924, is also part of the Monti Group.
