Italian entrepreneur Ermenegildo Zegna established his textile company in 1910, at the age of 18. His vision was to create premium-quality fabrics–he sourced wool directly from Mongolia and Australia, and used technologically advanced machinery he bought from England. Soon, Zegna began to export his luxury fabrics internationally. 

After his death, Zegna’s sons took over the company, expanding the business into ready-to-wear and opening boutiques all over the world.
