    Established in 1867, in the very beginning, his founder Ermanno Mosterts was importing the finest wool raw material from Australia and New Zealand.

    Soon he started to produce scarves, shawls and blankets which thanks to their unique softness and elegance, immediately got the attention of the Italian and European consumers through the whole 20th century. In the 60’s  Somma introduced the cotton bed linen to coordinate with the blankets and throws and make unique exclusive collection matching the most prestigious natural fibers like cashmere, alpaca, camel hair with the best cotton sateen and silk. Somma became one of the most exclusive brand of high-end textile products for the home. Since the year of the foundation, Somma has been a synonym for elegance, style and innovation.

    Its culture of beauty and elegance has enabled the brand to establish successfully on international markets, endorsing the excellence of “made in Italy” and contributing to create the success of the Italian living style in the world.Thanks to the new boost given by the Moltrasio family, founder and master of the GabelGroup,  who took over the company in the 90’s, Somma is now leader in the market for production capacity, innovation and service.Every day, for more than 150 years, Somma has been renewing its commitment to the highest quality standards, managing directly the entire production chain in its own premises in Italy. Today Somma is part of the GabelGroup, one of the largest textile group in Europe, combining an exclusive production capacity with technical expertise, style and distribution.
