Hannah Lewis,

A family company to this day, Luigi Bevilacqua was founded three centuries ago in Venice, using the 16th-century techniques and materials from when the craft of weaving was at its peak. The only Italian manufacturer of the sought-after soprarizzi velvets, it soon built a name for itself as a maker of true luxury textiles, and generation after generation of the family has added to that prestige.

Although the manufacturing process has evolved, the company retains its traditionalist approach, and Luigi Bevilacqua has preserved its reputation as well as its commitment to the highest quality. Its luxurious fabrics have found their way into the homes and even the wardrobes of the rich and famous, as well as the most lavish hotels and theatres across the world. They have graced the walls of the White House, and the brand is official supplier to the Vatican.
