The adventure began at the end of the 1950s.
Bruno Stoppani , Tatà's father, started producing jacquard fabrics for neckwear, ideas born in his studio in the center of Como were realized, created and woven in Brianza, according to the classic tradition of the territory. Always new and unique designs originating from the sketches that his three little girls, for fun, had fabricated; imaginative techniques that sometimes developed around of weaving or spinning; usage of unusual yarns that were not always designed for neckwear; passion, enthusiasm and great communication: everything contributed to Bruno's success in Italy and in the world.
His collections, always fresh, fun, and never predictable, have thrilled creative entrepreneurs from all over the globe. Consuming miles of silk, acetate and polyester blend, his works have "captivated" the most chic and eclectic men's necks from east to west.
1975 was a milestone and turning point. Bruno, who had never hidden his desire and hope that one of his three daughters would enter the company, decided to leave the world of silk design and tie production, at the height of his success. The heart dictated his motivation: too many journeys and long absences from home would hardly have reconciled the life of a woman with entrepreneurial activity. The Seterie Bruno Stoppani closed their doors and ITL was born, based in Lipomo (CO).
There, the interlining fabrications were developed, rolled out and cut while the weaving of the fabric was maintained in Brianza. In 1981, Tatà joined her father Bruno and, with new energy and enthusiasm, the foundations were laid for a new company….Best Tie…started in 1988. The company then moved to Albavilla, buying a shed of over 1,000 square meters and a 3-story building, opening the brushing department in Albese and continuing to weave in Brianza in order to keep the traditions set forth by Bruno. The new Best Tie had a mission: to become the premiere interlining resource for the best ties in the world.
