History

OVER 40 YEARS OF TRADITION, RESEARCH AND DESIGN

From a pioneer of technical fabrics to an international benchmark for fashion brands.

THE 1980s

Serates (Sebastiano Ramundo Tessuti) was founded in 1977 as a company specialising in producing technical fabrics for sport. Supported by customers who have played key roles in developing the global sportswear clothing sector, such as Leonardo Servadio (founder of Ellesse) and Massimo Osti (Stone Island and CP Company), Serates grew rapidly and in the 1980s became the benchmark for technical fabric worldwide. 

FROM 1990 TO 2010

Serates' technical skills, its aptitude for experimentation required to meet industry demands from the most innovative sportswear brands and its agile structure have made it an appealing partner for fashion too.

The company asserted itself here thanks to its ability to customise products and bring designers' input to life with textiles.

During these years the company had to gain knowledge of natural fibres and new processes, which would influence its specialisation in synthetic fibres and expand its potential.

FROM 2010 TO THE PRESENT DAY

Serates' technical skills, its aptitude for experimentation required to meet industry demands from the most innovative sportswear brands and its agile structure have established it as a go-to partner for fashion and luxury brands.
