Since 1933, Quagliotti has been committed to respecting the environment, supporting the values that safeguard people, work, land, and our natural resources.

We are deeply bound to our sense of place with a focus on quality and the protection of our region. We are also committed to a rigorous path that is linked to the principles of sustainability and we strive to continually improve the impact of our production and the supply chain in which we operate. As founding members of Slow Fiber, we are on a constant path oriented towards sustainability using the ESG factors that help us evaluate and manage our environmental and social impact.

The value of people and product

At the center of everything we do at Quagliotti, is our people. We are a company of artisans and craftspeople embracing a manufacturing tradition that is strongly rooted in our Italian heritage and region. Collaborating with the Turin Industrial Union — Association of Textile and Cotton Industrialists, at Quagliotti we are actively pursuing the transmission of expertise and know-how from one generation to the next. Via training courses and apprenticeships, we have long valued the opportunity for our craft to be shared with the next generation of Quagliotti employees. 

We design and manufacture every Quagliotti product in Italy. This is a key advantage in both the quality and the stature of our offering. We have never sent any part of our production abroad and we are proud to be able to say — Quagliotti. Made in Italy.

The value of place

Quagliotti’s story was born in Chieri, a few kilometers from Torino, Italy, behind the hills of Superga. It is this land, this region, that is at the root of Quagliotti’s cultural identity based on tradition, dedication and respect.

As founding members of the Pollenzo Agency and supporters of the Slow Food movement, (founded in Italy in 1986 after a demonstration on the intended site of a McDonald’s at the Spanish Steps in Rome) we believe the promotion and dissemination of their values related to social responsibility and sustainability have now become an essential topic for all industries.

On September 23, 2022, during Salone del Gusto-Terra Madre, the new Slow Fiber network was presented. Quagliotti, as a founding member, joined other companies in the textile supply chain to express and promote positive change in the industry through a sustainable production process, aimed at creating beautiful, healthy, clean, fair and durable products respecting the dignity and delicate balance of man, nature and place.

The value of raw materials

At Quagliotti we buy the best raw material on the market, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) certified, but we are aware that even with this certification, in the cotton supply chain, this does not guarantee the actual traceability and the certifications upstream of every supplier involved in the chain. At Slow Fiber, we seek to raise awareness on the issue via outreach, activation and education and it is the goal of Slow Fiber that our entire supply chain will adopt certified standards and participate in a complementary circle that allows us to create a product that meets an established  sustainability criteria linked to the environment alongside the correct use of natural resources and manpower coherent with ESG policies.

The value of certifications

Agreed-to certifications detail the integration of sustainability and production at Quagliotti.  We have embarked on a path to measure and reduce the environmental impacts of our company through Process Factory’s 4Sustainability protocol which is correlated to the objectives of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The process began by reporting on our total footprint with respect to environmental aspects and we have activated the 4Sustainability Materials analysis project to report on the impacts of materials, fibers, raw materials, sustainable alternatives and specific certification requirements of our supply chain in relation to production volumes at Quagliotti. In addition, the Assurance Planet and Materials has verified the legal requirements of EHS-Environment, Health and Safety. 

Our commitment to sustainability is focused on four distinct areas of improvement below, optimizing each initiative with dedication and adherence to ESG parameters. 

Reducing Emissions

We have quantified the emissions of GHG (greenhouse gas) we produce and have planned improvement actions over the next few years which consist of emissions compensation projects and the implementation of new solutions for reducing electricity consumption.

Renewable energy

As part of an ongoing project utilizing renewable energy, we have installed a photovoltaic system at our factory that allows us to produce our own electricity. 

Raw materials

We have defined a strategy to identify potential substitutions of incoming raw materials over time and into the next three years, if necessary, replacing  a portion of “conventional” cotton purchases with sustainable/certified GOTS and BCI alternatives. We are also undertaking a full review of current conventional packaging materials in order to substitute with alternatives derived from sustainable/certified sources.


Working with Slow Fiber, we have initiated a traceability process for our entire supply chain that we will expand and certify with all our partners, who operate in our territory building partnerships on the transparency of production processes.
