Antica Fabbrica Passamanerie Massia Vittorio 1843

Antica Fabbrica Passamanerie Massia Vittorio 1843 Passementerie
©All rights reserved

The words Passamanerie evokes uniforms, antique carriages and sumptuous mansions whose furniture pieces and clothes are embellished with weavings, gimps, frogs, fringes and tassels: a whole range of small, precious accessories expressing distinction, privilege and boldness. Passamanerie Massia is one of the leading companies in the restoration and reproduction of historical passementerie, and one of those bringing this traditional craft into modernity.

Run today by Max Massia, the company was founded in 1843 by his great-grandfather, a Royal Warrant Holder of the Savoy Court, and today claims to be the oldest passementerie workshop in Europe run by the same family. Thanks to their exceptional archive, covering almost 200 years of company history, and to the use of period looms and manual work, Passamanerie Massia is able to recreate any traditional design but also to conceive and realise new and one-of-a-kind items that can surely help anyone to express the distinction they deserve.
