History

Elitex was established in 1961 by Mrs. Elisa Livio, who is still at the head of the Company.

For half a century our firm has evolved through different transformations to its present state of textile factory.
Starting as a simple material converter, it soon developed a more and more specialized production of fabrics for wedding dresses.

In the mid 1980s we began producing embroideries in the plant at Montorfano.

At the end of the 1990s a considerable increase in productivity lead to the opening of a new factory at Albese con Cassano, where we started a direct production of our own fabrics.
Yet the need for more efficiency together with a growing will of development pushed us towards a new organization and reinforcement of our firm: a new structure of about 3500 sm. was opened on the outskirts of Como in September 2011, where our producing, commercial and administrative activities are now located.
Here we also have a new dyeing department  for fabrics, a completeness of the firm’s vertical structure, thanks to which it is possible to turn simple raw materials into high-quality finished textiles.
It is through the full control of the whole producing process that Elitex can regularly verify all the phases in the making of its own fabrics.

In 2014 the company acquired the brand “Serica Malnati” a wellknown firm of the bridal-ceremony market based in the same como area. At the same time Elitex Spa changed its name in Elitex Srl.

At the end of this historic path, as it usually happens, a lot of people have wished us “100 di questi anni!” – that is “a hundred years to come like these”.
We would like to thank all those people, but – since we are true Italians – we also add: “Let’s touch wood!”.
