HERITAGE

Mino Maestrelli is a contemporary fashion brand with an Italian heritage stretching back to the 1930s. Founded in Milan by Mr Mino Maestrelli, the business started as a family-run wholesaler of Italian fabrics. During the postwar period, the House of Maestrelli became a dominant textile provisioner to the prestigious European luxury brands during their infancy.

 

In contribution for the advancement of Italian sartorial arts, Mino Maestrelli was honoured with a knighthood by the Italian Republic. In continuation of this legacy, the brand is committed to the promotion of the Italian way of life.
