To invent and transmit to the market new decorative packaging solutions through the ribbons and gift wrapping paper in Packaging, Floral, Converters and Special Packaging industries.
1939 The beginning
The company NASTRIFICIO ANGELO BOLIS S.p.A., or simply BOLIS S.p.A., was born from the intuition to produce textile ribbons and then polypropylene film, decorative ribbons, bows, raffia, gift wrapping paper and shoppers, all «Made in Italy».
1970 Decorative Ribbon
Here it is the alternative to the classic rayon and textile ribbons: the Splendene® coming from a particular polypropylene foamed film with a specific know-how, continuously evolving in aesthetic treatments, in the processing development and in the packaging.
1970/1980 Evolution and markets
The worldwide diffusion of the decorative ribbons suggests innovative solutions in the product finishing.
It comes to life the Paper Synthetic with the matt and
natural looking, the Biluxe and Reflex metallizations, the Duplus with a double shining layer and many others variants, as well as the automatic pull-bows Svelto®, Stop&Lock® and their derivatives.
1980 Chain Stores
First company in the world developing the gift wrapping decoration dedicated to the largescale retail trade and stores, after a long preparation began in the 1960s.
A world first: self-curling polypropylene decorative ribbon.
The introduction of the specially developed lengthwise slit ribbon giving a more voluptuous look and creating a whole new generation of colour and functional decorative raffias.
2005 Wrapping paper
Inevitable synergy between creativity and market: the gift wrapping paper. As a basic element in the gift wrapping industry, the Bolis Company is engaged in the implementation of a totally new factory in the province of Pordenone as a guarantee of an authentic «Made in Italy».
2010 Focus on Special Packaging
Conception and production development of semi-finished custom-made materials intended for the industrial applications of ribbons, bows and gift wrapping paper directly on client large series products.
2011/2015 Svelto®Shopper and ZipBag
The gift has also to be carried and ready for the emotions of the gift giving. The Svelto®Shopper consists of a bag with a beautiful bow created when pulling the handle. In this direction it is introduced also the ZipBag with a simple touch closing.
New semi-finished product coming from a recent Bolis research project. The Texly® consists of a stratification of different materials and represents a new frontier in the high and mid-range decorative ribbon industry. Light, lightness, resistance, workability and applications never conceived before are the key factors of this novelty.
