FINE ITALIAN LINENS Since the 1850's, Frette has provided the finest linens - for bed, table, and bath - to the most tasteful homes and hotels worldwide. Initially based in France, Edmond Frette, the house's founder, moved the company from France to Italy in 1861, to gain proximity to the best textile mills. Soon after, Frette was named the official linen supplier to the royal family. The history of the company, which is still located on the outskirts of Milan, is synonymous with the quality and taste that has "Made in Italy" products famous all over the world. From old-fashioned tests on the weaving loom to the creation of patterns on the computer, the drawings that vitalize Frette linen are miniature masterpieces of craftsmanship and modern technology. Today, Frette stands as much for home accessories as for quality jacquard linen lines. Frette's reputation for quality is embodied in its unique partnership with the finest and most exclusive destinations around the world. From monogrammed clothes in the dining cars of the Orient Express, to crisp damasks on the tables of the Queen of Italy and the altars of St. Peter's basilica at the Vatican, Frette's fabrics have always been prominent fixtures in the best surroundings.
