Precociously attentive to aesthetics and creativity, Gabel asks the designer Pierluigi Cerri to invent its logo. A few years later, the architectural Firm Gregotti Associati designs the new headquarters in Rovellasca, Como. In 1976, the official establishment of Gabel Industria Tessile, with the takeover of the historic Cotonificio Vallesusa and the addition of the brand Vallesusa Casa to the Company. Since the early Eighties, the Group controls the entire production chain: from the clean energy produced by the hydro-electric power-plant in Gorizia, on the Isonzo river, to the finished product. This brings along the Oekotex certification. Very attentive to the environment, Gabel only uses sustainable energy for all production plants, offices and stores. In 1996 the Group takes over the historic woolen mill And brand Somma, and in 2007 the terry-towels producer Pretti.
