Basi’s first steps can be traced back to 1944, the year when Mercedes Sabi set up a craft workshop that became the real origin of everything the group is nowadays. During the 1940s, that workshop manufactured the highest-quality knitted garments in Barcelona that were sold by the most famous and prestigious establishments in the country.
The passion for the textile industry was transferred from parents to children and in 1958, the company took root when Sabi’s sons took charge of the family business and created the Basi firm. That same year, the brothers moved the workshop to a factory in the Gracia district of Barcelona.
Quality has always been the firm’s hallmark which, since its beginnings, has been known for seeking excellence in each garment sold. That same tireless perseverance was used to expand the business and adapt to a changing society that gave rise to an increasingly younger clientele.
