After taking the lead of the company in the 1960’s, Franco Loro Piana, grandson of Pietro, started to export high quality fabrics in Europe, America and Japan.

In the 1970s, the company was directed by Francos’ sons, Sergio and Pier Luigi Loro Piana, whose focus was on top quality fabrics development, including cashmere and extra fine wools. Sergio and Pier research gave birth to the Tasmanian fabric.
