VEGEA srl was born in January 2016 as a Company producing innovative vegetal materials.


Its founder is Gianpiero Tessitore, architect based in Milan, who, in 2014, started a thorough study in cooperation with various specialized Research Centers in order to analyze physical and mechanical properties of several vegetal fibers and their suitability for being processed into eco-friendly materials.


This study led to identify the fibers contained in grape skins and seeds as the ideal ones to generate an ecologic vegetal material: VEGEA.


In June 2016 the patent concerning the whole production process was filed.
