There are not many families who can claim to be in the fashion business for over a century.
The Mandelli Family history is a story of a strong family and an even stronger tradition
of Italian Craftmanship Excellence: a real Made in Italy.
Andrea Maria Mandelli is now the owner of the company, but he is the fourth generation because his great-grandfather Enrico started the business in the early 1900's as a leather supplier in the north of Milan.
Paolo, Enrico's son, joined his father in 1925 and spent the rest of his life
expanding the business.
Thanks to his creative and business-oriented mindset he lead the company into the Italian fashion market producing women's and men's sportswear and outerwear.
During the 50's the development on a national level was immediate and in 1954 Paolo and his wife Ermelinda founded Emme Spa.
In 1964 the company changed its name to Enrico Mandelli Spa to honour the founder: the great-grandfather Enrico.
Paolo's son, also named Enrico, joined the family business in the early 60's starting the third generation.
Thanks to him, Enrico Mandelli Spa reached the highest quality of production in Italy, using the finest leathers and the
best noble fibers in the world.
In 1964 Enrico married Rachele and during the 70's they contributed to the expansion of Italian fashion in the world.
They also began to collaborate with the best Italian designers.
During the 80's the success was immediate:
Enrico Mandelli Spa was recognized as one of
the best companies in the world thanks to its
production of highest-quality luxurious outerwear.
Andrea, Enrico's son, has been at the helm of the
company since 1996. With a master's degree in business administration, he intends to further improve the company by building on his heritage the excellence for which the Mandelli name is known.
Andrea was raised to believe that there are no compromises to quality nor to excellent customer service.
There is no replacement for the best.
Enrico Mandelli Spa is the only Italian company that has discovered technologies to create the softest crocodile leather available on the market. Enrico Mandelli Spa is a successful company completely Made in Italy.
In fact, during its career Enrico Mandelli Spa has won and it's still winning numerous awards.
Nowadays the company is still settled in the north of Milan and its production is certified 100% Made in Italy. The company can count on a staff of more than 250 people.
Since 2010 Andrea has been joined by his wife Chiara Moroni who helps him with the management of the company.
Enrico Mandelli Spa is a family business combining excellent craftsmanship with the use of the finest materials in the world. The company continues to serve the very top retailers worldwide and to work with the most successful global brands.
