In 1993, the company bought its first farm in New Zealand and currently owns three: Otamatapaio (1993), Rugged Ridges (1997) and Glenrock (2003), for a total of 74,100 acres and 30,000 sheep.
In 2015, in collaboration with The Woolmark Company, Reda celebrated its 150th anniversary with a touring exhibition and a photography book created with Magnum Photos and curated by Angelo Flaccavento.
In April 2018, the company, owned by the fourth generation of the Botto Poala family, bought Comero, a woolen mill based in Gattinara (Vercelli) and specialized in textile production for men’s and women’s clothing.
In 2020, Reda became the first textile company in Italy and one of the first worldwide to receive the B Corporation certification.

Inspired by the British, with a touch of eccentricity, the Thomas Mason collection features double-twisted fabrics made with only the finest yarns from extremely long Egyptian cotton. Founded in Lancashire in 1796 by entrepreneur Thomas Mason, the eponymous label has been an emblem of elegance and quality in the world of the English braided tradition. Acquired by the Albini group in 1992, Thomas Mason recreates his rich heritage in a modern and original way through valuable and colorful double-twisted fabrics made with the exclusive Egyptian cotton “Giza 45” and “Giza 87”.
The history of Dormeuil dates back to 1842, when Jules Dormeuil first began importing English textiles to France. Behind the fabric are the years of research and perfection required to produce these fine, exotic fabrics. When creating the canvas, Dormeuil follows three pillars: part of art, part of science and part of nature. From here, textile products are selected annually by breeding farms around the world to produce the highest quality natural fabrics. A rigorous process is then created to ensure that the end user receives a luxury product.
The history of Canclini Tessile began more than 80 years ago, in 1925, when the company was established as part of the silk industry in the Como region. The first major change took place in the 1960s. The exceptional experience gained in working with precious and luxurious fibers such as silk, together with the diligence characteristic of true entrepreneurship in Como, led the family to abandon the silk sector at the expense of cotton in the 1960s. This proved to be an inspired decision, as in the following years the company established itself as a leader in shirt fabrics.
