Missoni Home

Company

T&J Vestor was founded in 1921 in Golasecca (Varese), on the banks of the Ticino river. Initially named by the founder Piero Torrani and later T&J Vestor. The acronym T&J combines the initials of the two founding families, Torrani and Jelmini, with the Vestor trademark added afterwards.

This almost century-old Italian manufacturer and leader in home textiles started with the production of embroidered fabrics, especially silks, which in the successive years gave rise to the production of shawls, kimono’s and cushions.

Over the following decades, due to the superior quality of its products, the company became the market leader initially in the field of clothing and then with household linen, especially bridal sets.

By the mid-1960s, construction work began on the new factory, which remains today, and this development was accompanied by a total metamorphosis of the product.

During the 1970s the company took its first steps internationally. In addition to stores in Milan and Rome, stores opened in Paris, Brussels and Dusseldorf, selling its specialized range of household linen, sleepwear and interior decoration fabrics. This line of patchwork bedspreads and quilts was quickly established on the European market and by the end of this decade, also in the United States where the first showroom opened in Los Angeles in 1979.

An increasingly international strategic role was a decisive turning point during the ‘80s. The collections had a high creative content, quality and strong identity. The incorporation of advanced and sophisticated techniques distinguished the processes.

To fulfill the wishes of an increasingly demanding public, the lines produced under license in 1983 were joined by the Missoni brand: furnishing fabrics, linens, carpets and curtains. This was a further strategic step that allowed T&J Vestor to lead the way in the “lifestyle concept” approach alongside textile projects. Above all, it was a family matter: Rosita Missoni, born Jelmini, is the sister of Alberto and Giampiero Jelmini, at the helm of the company, together with the cousins Torrani.

In the mid-90s the brand is enriched with a new line, produced under license, Alviero Martini 1a Classe.

The 2000s
In recent decades, the company’s presence in the world has strengthened: in addition to the Golasecca headquarters and the Milan showroom, showroom-offices have opened in Paris, London and New York.

With regards to the distribution of the collections produced, shop in shops opened in the main international department stores (Rinascente, Harrods, Le Bon Marché, Harvey Nichols, Mitsukoshi, Isetan just to name a few) and in mono-brand stores, located in the most exclusive shopping streets.

In addition to this, several significant partnerships have been undertaken, such as with the Roche Bobois network, this collection designed by Kenzo Takada was recently launched and the textile component realised by T&J Vestor.
The contract-hospitality sector has provided another important area of development; the Missoni hotels (Scotland and Kuwait), Acqua Livingstone (Philippines), Missoni Baia (United States) and in the last year, the suites of the Hotel Byblos in Saint Tropez, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its foundation.

Maison & Objet (Paris) and Salone del Mobile (Milan) remain the international showcases where the company presents the MissoniHome collection to the trade sector.

The ever increasing importance of e-commerce is managed through the missoni.com site (Yoox platform), alongside the most exclusive multibrand specialists, operating only online or in ‘multi-channel’ mode.
