In 1999 Canepa opened its furnishings division. The aim was to cover an area seemingly quite different from clothing, but a long history in the textiles sector has ensured the success of this new business line. Thanks to the transfer of its technical and creative approach to the furnishing fabrics sector, and the considerable production capacity of 150 looms, from the start the furnishings division has been acclaimed as one of the top makers of fabrics in the world.
In 2003 the division was awarded the prestigious Seri.co certification, which guarantees the quality and observance of health and safety requirements of the finished fabric and of its production system.
Canepa’s participation since 2004 at the Proposte trade fair for the leading makers of fabrics and curtains in Europe has become a regular event, at which Canepa presents products of exceptional quality and innovative value.
In 2012 another milestone testified to the success of the (now well-established) furnishings division, when Canepa obtained CSI Med certification for supplying marine equipment.
