Aurifil is a market-oriented company dedicated to develop new products based on quality and threads solutions.
Established in 1983, Aurifil is an accomplished Italian company based near Milano, with a full-grown experience in producing superior quality cotton threads for professional and domestic quilters.
The fastest and most sophisticated technology is the strength to aesthetically manufacture all products and supplies that allows the company to be popular in the market. Aurifil provides assistance to all sewing needs through a wide range of threads in several weights & accessories.
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.
Italy as you know has always been the world leader in production of both bed linen and bath towels together with garments and high fashion. 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. It was after this time in 1995 that Aurifil and Studio Auriga first appeared online with their first website. Elena soon discovered the quilt world and was fascinated firstly by what can only be described as works of art, masterpieces in fact. Even though the quilt market was completely different to their current operations, 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.
After that stellar introduction, Aurifil reinvented their packaging and wrapped their spools to make their thread more appealing to quilters. In 2007, Aurifil USA was born.
