For over 60 years, Vives and Mari has been a pioneer in the trade of Valencian artistic silk fabrics. An elaborate handmade process which has been passed down from father to son: three generations that have secured at all times the quality of our product.
Vives and Mari is one of the largest textile factories in Spain, and the leading enterprise in the production of traditional Valencian silk fabrics. Its founders, Luis Vives and José Marí, created a small business in the 50s, that gradually transformed into the high-end enterprise that it is today, when Manuel Aznar, Vicente Bayot and Jaime García, were included in its amazing team.
Since 1973, Marí Vives and implements its production of fabrics dedicated to the traditional attires of the Valencian Community In 1999 the production of Espolines was reinstated.
