Bonotto Spa is a fourth generation textile manufacturer, founded by Luigi Bonotto in 1912, initially to make straw hats. Fifty years on and it converted to textiles, developing alongside the Italian fashion industry. Today it is run by sons Lorenzo and Giovanni, employing some two hundred masters of art and able to boast a sophisticated range of jacquard fabrics. Now, thanks to the creative management of Giovanni Bonotto, it has gone back to its roots, capitalising on its artisanal skills with a production mode, which Giovanni calls “Slow Factory”. 2015 saw the birth of Bonotto Editions, a new project founded by Giovanni and Lorenzo Bonotto together with Cristiano Seganfreddo, in charge of artistic direction, with offices in via Durini, the home of the Caproni di Taliedo family, aviation pioneers. This is not a traditional collection, but a range of artistic textiles, destined for home furnishing and fashion use. From the partnership between Bonotto Editions and Istituto Marangoni design comes a collection of wall hangings created from the designs of students from the Surface and Textile Design Master’s course, who, thanks to the contemporary nature of the motifs, have brought new life to the classic manufacture of wall hangings.
