The Reda story begins in 1865 with the founding of the historic wool factory in Valle Mosso (in the Piedmont region of Italy) by the local entrepreneur Carlo Reda. In 1919, the Botto Poala brothers bought the historic wool factory, which marked the beginning of a long road that has made Reda, with its high-quality Italian-produced merino wool textiles, a global institution in the textile industry.
