Bergamo is an Italian city northeast of Milan, in the Lombardy region. Its older upper district, called Città Alta, is characterized by cobblestone streets, encircled by Venetian walls and accessible by funicular. It’s home to the Duomo di Bergamo, the city cathedral. Also here are the Romanesque Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore and the grand Cappella Colleoni, a chapel with 18th-century frescoes by Tiepolo.
The company is a family-owned business that was established in 1970 when a sock factory in Castiglione delle Stiviere was set up. In 1980, the business shifted its focus to collaboration with major international firms. Working closely with leading fashion brands, it has built up an unsurpassed technical expertise through the intricate design toils and feedback, iterated season after season. Encouraged by its success, the company invested heavily in modernisation and built new manufacturing facilities in Bergamo in 2000. Today, the company sells its products across the globe and manufactures for many of the premier ultra luxury menswear brands.
The company is run by Massimiliano, an attentive craftsman focused on producing the best quality products. He meticulously reviews each step of manufacturing, mindful of the ultimate aim – to deliver the best experience when customers put on his socks.
Yarn selection is one of the key focus areas, where the goal is to fully utilise natural fibers, such as cotton, wool, cashmere, hemp, silk and linen. The dedication to using only natural materials has led Massimiliano to take the conscious leap of removing the logo of his own company from the socks. The company has an esteemed tradition of excellence in all their work and is the reason why the world’s leading brands manufacture their socks here.
