Our key strength is the family management aspect.
Already in 1962, when Antonio Ghiringhelli first established Nastrificio di Cassano, our philosophy was founded on strong family ties and the shared desire to manufacture fabrics for labels that were produced with care and passion.
The strict manufacturing processes and our human capital represented, and still represent, the values that unite us within a large family, eager to make a difference on the label textile material market.
Investments in Research and Development, the focus on sustainability and manufacturing still Made in Italy are the direct consequence of this fundamental aspect.
Chair and majority shareholder
Marie Antoinette was born and bred on the values of Nastrificio di Cassano since she was a child, when she accompanied her father Antonio around the production department and observed the care with which every roll of fabric was produced with her own eyes.
After an experience in the clothing sector, in 1992 she took over the reins of the company, soon becoming the majority shareholder.
Today she is passionately involved in the general management of the entire company, in charge of administration, the coordination of the sales representatives, and contacts with customers.
In her free time she loves to cook and, as she does with the management of the company, skilfully mixes all the ingredients until she achieves the results that she has set her mind to.
The niece of Antonio Ghiringhelli, Elisa works alongside her aunt Maria Antonietta in the management of orders and suppliers, and supports the Research & Development department in the creation of new products.
She took a degree in art markets at the IULM University and a Master in Communication and Fashion at the Luxury Academy in Milan, an education that gives her a deep insight to the retail markets and to propose new solutions, in line with current trends in our application sectors.
Filippo shares his love of cooking with his mother Maria Antonietta. After training in the hotel sector, he graduated in Economics and Management and officially joined the Nastrificio di Cassano management team.
In his free time he plays football, a sport that taught him team spirit and that, despite his young age, allowed him to support his mother in the general management of the firm, with the future perspective of a gaining a Master before going on to take over the helm of the company.

His knowledge of the label market made him the right person to lead the R&D department, becoming the key point of reference for customers and suppliers.
