The history of Aurifil begins humbly in Italy, 1957, a young man by the name of Angelo Gregotti founded Studio Auriga, to produce designs for a multi head mechanical embroidery machine. It was the first and only company to undertake this type of work in Italy. In 1983 to offer a greater service to his customers, Angelo proposed to his school friend Adolfo Veronelli to join his project and start a new adventure producing thread. Their vision was to source the best Egyptian cotton and create thread to supply our customers with the greatest product on the market. Aurifil was born.
Elena Gregotti and Alex Veronelli as second generation joined the Company after graduating university. Elena soon discovered the quilt world and was fascinated firstly by what can only be described as works of art, masterpieces in fact. She proposed to her father to approach this market. It was obvious that the quilters knew quality when they saw it and we were astonished at the attention we received when we presented our product for the first time in the European Quilt Show in Strasbourg 2000. In 2007 we were ready for establishment in the United States and Aurifil USA was born.
A big thanks to both Aurifil and Soak for supplying us with some amazing products!
