Our history is a family history, of simple, concrete, industrious people. Everything started in Prato in 1974, with Sauro, who began to sell stocked fabrics warehouse in Via Traversa. A few years later, in 1980, Sauro founded Sauro Bigagli Tessuti Srl. A business quickly expanded and ever more specialized in 100% cotton workwear fabrics and not just.
It is in Via Gora del Pero, the historic headquarters, that the real important contracts begin, the years when demand is very high and new markets open up. In those years, first Silvia and then Sara, Sauro’s daughters, flanked their father. Sauro Bigagli Tessuti Srl becomes the reference point in Italy in the field of fabrics for workwear.
To date, Sauro Bigagli Tessuti, SB Srl is in Via Perlasca and still deals with fabrics for workwear, but above all it focuses on the sector of ready-to-wear fabrics, and is very active in real estate. In 1996 Silvia Bigagli Tessuti was born, with Silvia being the first to bring polyester and cotton fabrics already dyed from abroad to Italy.
