Ermenegildo Zegna founded the company in 1910 in
Trivero in the Biellese Prealps. Zegna quickly gained a reputation for
producing fine quality wool for suits, and by the end of the 1930s, the
Wool Mill employed 1,000 workers. In 1938 the Zegna Woollens Corporation
was set up in New York although exports were not helped by the
privations of war. When Ermenegildo's sons Aldo (born 1920) and Angelo
(born 1924) joined the company in 1942, it was renamed Ermenegildo Zegna
and Sons. By 1955, the company employed 1,400 workers. Ermenegildo died
in 1966 at the age of 74. Aldo and Angelo took over the business and two
years later they launched a line of ready-made suits, produced in
Zegna's factory in Novara.
