Bassetti is an Italian textile company.

It was founded in Milan in 1830 by Carlo Barboncini, as a textile emporium.[1] In 1840 it opened a hand-weaving factory at Rescaldina, some 25 km to the north west, which employed around fifty women.[2] Today it forms part of the Zucchi Group, which specialises in the manufacture and distribution of household linen and whose brands include ’Zucchi‘ and ‘Bassetti’ and Mascioni In Italy. .[3]
