Our history

In 1933, in the Como village of Olgiate Comasco, Virgilio Taiana started in his first loom.
The context was truly fitting: the tradition and culture of textiles in this region is long-standing, something that is quite unique in the world.

It is a small industrial universe made of dyeing, printing and weaving: an economic phenomenon that finds its success in the hard work, intelligence and creativity of the people of this region.
85 years on, the company remains faithful to its human values and to the craftsmanship and cultural legacy that these people left us so that we can continue to develop their work.

Environmental policy

Taiana is convinced that safeguarding the environment is essential for ethical and aware business, both now and in the years to come.

This conviction, coupled with its ethical social commitment, also represents a competitive strength for the company for the upcoming years.

This is why Taiana has devised an integrated eco-sustainability process called R.R.R. based on the principles of ISO14001 and sees environmental management as a dominant feature of every stage in the production cycle, which it undertakes with a holistic approach.

This means the company will continue to keep its guard up in relation to these issues at every stage in the process, making sure that all of its employees are engaged and cooperate actively with suppliers and customers in these areas.

This decisive company policy can be seen in its following commitments:

  • Ensuring continued compliance with applicable law and regulations, with particular attention to environmental legislation and waste management, raising awareness and involving employees, suppliers and customers to ensure that the impact of waste and reclamation work are properly managed
  • Periodically carrying out internal inspections to verify compliance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001
  • Continuing to constantly improve company performance, in terms both of product quality and of the environment, by analysing and attentively managing every stage in the process
  • Steadily reducing the environmental impact of our business, whether directly or indirectly, with particular attention to low energy production using the most advanced energy-efficient manufacturing machinery
  • Progressively reducing the amount of water used in manufacturing, through low usage dyeing processes, with preferential usage of dry printing and finishing processes
  • Selecting and opting for, wherever possible, suppliers located in nearby geographic areas to reduce transport pollution
  • Reusing production scrap to avoid waste
  • Creating longer life products that therefore have a lower medium-term impact on the environment.
  • Using ever more eco-sustainable raw materials such as post-consumer recycled yarns and biodegradable fibres and yarns and putting them into the Relyfe fabrics project (
  • Constantly striving to reduce any reliance on chemicals that are potentially hazardous to the environment, even though their presence are within legal limits. Seeking to achieve a ZERO figure for all substances listed in the Detox protocol. Particular attention being paid to the identification and development of water-repellent PFC-free treatments
  • Informing the public of the company policy and giving people the information needed to understand the effects on the environment of business and industry and maintaining transparent and constructive relationships with all stakeholders

The company policy has been developed in collaboration with the employees and adopted in the carrying on of all our business. This policy is shared with stakeholders in line with the company policy that goes beyond simple compliance with the legal requirements to identify voluntary practices and conduct in the conviction that we can achieve results with broad ranging benefits and advantages for the company itself and the world in which it operates.
