In the early 1950s Gio Ponti started a collaboration with Luigi Grampa – the owner of manufattura Jsa in Busto Arsizio. This working relationship led to creation of series of fabric designs, which were
hand-produced by Manifattura Jsa from 1950 to 1958 (currently in production). The most famous from the series designed by Ponti are: Legge Mediterranea, Poesia del mare, Recinto, Olimpia, Rilievo, Cristalli, Diamanti, il Circo, Meridiana, Romb
