Welcome on Decatex



In 1979 the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of fabric designer Marco Della Canonica, after years of experience in the world of embroidery, decided to focus his creativity in the jacquard textile sector, founding his first manufacturing company.
It was the beginning of the 80s, when accessories became the real distinctive element to enhance the garments on which they were applied.
The biggest fashion houses and brands were hungry for logos, to put on jacquard woven labels and ribbons, to personalize their clothes and their garment collections.
At the beginning of the nineties, he changed the corporate structure including his sons, moved the headquarters to Cairate, where he is today and the Decatex was born
In these 40 years the company has had the ability and the honor to work with the most prestigious and exclusive customer of clothing and beyond, always offering a professional collaboration, inspired by the “total quality”.
Offering the customer a product that is qualitatively excellent has always been a fundamental value and shared by the second generation.
Filippo Della canonica, son of the founder, with the workers trained in the company through years of experience, gives Decatex a new international dimension, not only consolidating service and quality, always incorporating new technologies, but also developing the foreign market and expanding the product range.


The company has a highly localized structure, operating with a single production unit, adjacent to its headquarters.
All suppliers of raw materials and semi-finished products are exclusively Italian and most of them are placed in the most prestigious production districts: Como and Biella, as well as finishing, if we talk about clothing and fashion accessory.
We draw from a geographical area full of history, tradition and professionalism.
We have deep roots that we express in the finished product and intend to remain strongly anchored.


The engineering department “D design” consists in a professional team constantly updated on styles and fashion trends, to offer the most innovative textiles proposals.
We start from the graphic simulations with associated color palettes, based on requests and customer mood, followed by a detailed stylistic and technical advice and support.
The feed-back received step by step, allow us to carry out the work in full harmony.
Completed the graphic design is facing the textile industry, “D design” by virtue of his experience and textile sensibility and creativity, is able to make full use of the techniques, materials and devices potential.
The yarns are wisely woven assigning different armor depending on the result you want to achieve, sometimes it is preferable a soft and light touch, sometimes more stiff for other purposes.
The effects can be flat, or more bulky, the definition can be low for a retro style or high or very high to reproduce even the smallest details.
The result of this import activity is expressed in the sample, and that is essential prerogative before launching production.
If the result was not up to expectations, the team would restart to full and total customer satisfaction.
In Decatex nothing is produced that has not been previously sampled and approved.
