Who we are

“If you do things well, do them better. Be daring, be first, be different, be just”.

Anita Roddick


Antonio Gentili, following 30 years of experience in the textile industry in Como, founded GENTILI Srl in 1997.
In the beginning the product was conceived for the mid and high end ready to wear market, while in the last decade its focused switched mostly toward the high fashion’s segment.


After the textile recession begun in 2001, Gentili had to contrast the raising yet fierce competition from both Mediterranean and Asian areas.
As a result, the company decided to manufacture a wider and more sophisticated range of qualities and designs hard to reproduce elsewhere but in Como. This has been achieved thank to an innovative stylistic research and by the use of precious yarns only, allowing Gentili to become a devoted supplier to the luxury market. At the same time, Gentili increased its sales presence globally reaching out to several different markets. Export activities account now to 70% of the company total revenue.


Nowadays, Gentili interacts with the most prestigious international designers, keeping always an eye on topics such as flawless quality and fast turn arounds.

“Clothing is also a science, art, habit, an emotion”.

Honoré de Balzac
