Badoere fabrics: visit to the Italian textile mills!


Are you wondering what to see in Treviso and its surrounding area?
We recommend a day to rediscover the simple things … a trip to an old spinning mill, where everything has been produced by hand since 1895.


Italian textile mills: Badoere di morgano,  hand-spun Italian textiles!


This is what they do here –  hand spin the best of fashion items! These are designed in a modern way but carry on production processes that have their roots in past centuries. All this happens daily in our textile factory in the heart of Veneto, a microcosm that nevertheless weaves world famous Italian fabrics that are appreciated by some of the most famous designers in the world.

From the weaving of silk to the one of wool, from the home made looms to the knitwear, the Badoere mills produce accessories such as scarves, shawls, cloaks, hats, caps, foulards and gloves.

Uniqueness and refinement, yarns and vibrant colours all make these products essentially Italian.


How can a hand spinning still exist today?

Well it can! And it creates wealth for everyone, as we will tell you during the visit to our fabric mill which was founded in the seventeenth century by the ancestors of our family. Not very modern, is it? Yet so Italian.
In this family connection lies our strength and our uniqueness! The company keeps this special craft alive, focusing on the attention to detail and using only the best high quality fabrics. We are maintaining local production and supporting 100% the Made in Italy brand.

 

Badoere, products are characterized by quality, tradition and love for the locality.
For centuries our italian textile mill has combined the value given by craftsmanship to the expansive value of commerce, bringing success and creating a spinning culture. We are no longer in the 17th century, but the value of the yarn we work on, the expertise of our collaborators and the solidity of our knitting machines (ancient family tools still in use!) are as essential elements ​​today as they were then.
We invite you to visit our world, where you will be able to visit the workspaces, observe the hand looms and the most precious pieces that we still keep (like the orthogonal frames that date back to 1800). Our historical records will be available to you and you will be able to look at the history of Italian textile mills, how we choose our fabrics and the working techniques of our products.


Badoere flea market: crafts and collectibles at the Barchessa


Arriving in Badoere is like entering the history of an area linked to its land since 1676. The name of the town, in fact, derives from the ancient family of Venetian nobles: the Badoers. It was they who wanted to build the famous semicircular square, the Barchessa di Badoere, all to facilitate the meeting between trade and craftsmanship!
The Badoere market is an event that is renewed every third Sunday of the month from March to December.
It is a meeting place for artisans and antiques enthusiasts. You can find furniture, clothes, stamps, coins, objects, printed fabrics and collectibles, all in a vintage vibe. The craft market is located right under the eighteenth-century porticoes of the Rotonda. More than 150 exhibitors alternate to show their creations and collections, creating a synthesis of artistic works and family craftsmanship.
