Luciano Barbera is a high-end men’s clothing company that originated in Biella, Italy, a town and comune in the northern Italian region of Piedmont, the capital of the province of the same name. Luciano Barbera has offices and design in Biella, Italy to this day. Prior to producing a clothing company, the Barbera family owned and operated the Carlo Barbera Mill, also in Biella, Italy.
The initial fabric factory in Biella, Italy was founded by Carlo Barbera (1911–2013). The clothing manufactured by the firm is considered by at least one source to be of the finest quality. When the fabric production was in progress, it too was of luxurious standards. After dying, the yarn was rested six months while it regained humidity before weaving in order to obtain the best results. In 2010 the reported average price of fabric from the Carlo Barbara factory was 41 euros a meter ($48.75 a yard), about twice that of their Italian competitors.
