Pollini was founded in 1953 in San Mauro Pascoli, a small town in Emilia Romagna. With time, this area became an authentic shoemaking district thanks to the local highly skilled artisans. The brand quickly gained notoriety and started producing its leather goods on an industrial scale, which allowed the company to start producing bags as well. But it was only with Pollini’s themed collections that the brand gained its fame.
Pollini’s brand continued to grow throughout the years. In 2000 the brand was bought out by the prestigious luxury brands group AEFFE. Since then, Pollini has also been producing AEFFE’s other brands’ accessories (Alberta Ferretti, Philosophy, Moschino, Moschino Cheap and Chich, and Love Moschino).
