If somebody would like to compile a history of the fabrics could not do it without taking into consideration human history, who driven by the need to cover, first started weaving coarse fabrics.

After that, weaving has been developed as the production of fine fabrics, in various colors and designs. Weaving progressed with the civilization by bringing work and turning the art of weaving, into a popular profession.

The documented history of the Artistic Weaving Nagler, the first textile company in Val Badia, dates back to 1857 and passed on from father to son for 5 generations. However, the beginnings of this art date back to a more remote past, when Nagler weavers went from farm to farm to work the wool and the linen produced by the farmers. That is why the direct knowledge of the raw material and the experience gained in the patient work of many years, are the solid foundation that now make Tessitura Nagler a very high quality production centre, in which art and craft have proceeded hand in hand.

Weaving can be defined as the intertwining of two perpendicular series of parallel wires where only the longitudinal threads (warp) will evolution, rising and falling, while the cross wires (weft) are merely placed in the gap formed by the first ones. Any device that allows such a work process is called loom.
The technical progress that has intervented to change the means of production has been particularly important, replacing the handloom with the mechanical one and bringing the product, with the electronic Jacquard loom, to a high degree of perfection. The manual craftsman style is typical of a secular production but has never failed, and its creative imprint can be seen in the creation of colors and decorative designs.
The inventiveness and creativity of Nagler weavers derives from a rich taste for what is nice and decorative, which means that today, Artistic Weaving Nagler can boast a choice of over 300 decorative designs: floral, geometric and typical Tyrolean.
