About

Manufacturing the finest Italian terry towels

We’ve been transforming premium cotton into private-label terry cloth, logo-branded merchandise and Almatex-brand towelling products since 1948. We supply to hotels, spas, promotional merchandising companies and leading household linen brands.

 

Our commitment to tradition and quality has never wavered, despite the textile crisis and the temptation to offshore.

 

Investing in technology along the way has helped us improve work processes, stay efficient and reduce our environmental impact.

 

Seventy years on, we still make Italian cotton terry towelling on our solar-powered jacquard and dobby looms at our factories near Milan.

Plush, durable terry towelling

We closely monitor our entire terry towel manufacturing process so ensure it meets the high standard of quality we’re known for. We exclusively use soft, 100% ringspun cotton and pay meticulous attention to the finish and embroidery.
We assemble each product individually and carefully check each batch to ensure that our terry cloth is plush, durable and absorbent.

We care about the environment

Tradition and handing things down for posterity are important to us. This is why we’ve committed to leaving future generations with an unpolluted environment.
We choose our suppliers carefully and only use OEKO-TEX® Standard 100-certified cotton for our terry cloth. Solar panels at our factory help us reduce carbon emissions and produce greener terry cotton.

Three generations of terry towel manufacturers

Our story began just after the Second World War in Val Gandino, at the foot of the Italian Alps. At that time, Leffe was a leading Italian textile hub. Siblings Arnaldo and Alma Zambaiti took the plunge and opened a terry towelling factory called Almina.

Almina became Almatex in the 1970s as the next generation took over. The company became a leading terry towel manufacturer, supplying household linen retailers and big household brands with terry cloth. After the economic boom came the textile crisis in the 1990s. But we held firm and refused to offshore our production. Instead, we rolled up our sleeves, determined to continue making the finest Italian terry towelling with our heads held high.

Management has now passed to the third generation, and our work ethic and dedication has never wavered. We’re proud to be one of the few companies which still continues to manufacture terry cotton in Italy. Our products are sold all over Europe and our customers can still expect high-quality, plush, absorbent and durable terry towelling.
