Pasotti: A Legacy of Italian Craftsmanship in Luxury Umbrellas

Pasotti: A Legacy of Italian Craftsmanship in Luxury Umbrellas

Nestled in the picturesque countryside of Mantova, Italy, the legacy of Pasotti continues to shine brightly, producing exquisite handmade umbrellas that are cherished in boutiques across the globe. This renowned brand, soon to celebrate its 68th anniversary, remains a testament to unparalleled craftsmanship and timeless elegance.

A Storied Beginning

The story of Pasotti begins in 1956 with Ernesta Pasotti, a visionary artisan who embarked on a journey to create unique umbrellas. With a passion for detail and quality, Ernesta started producing one-of-a-kind umbrellas, often selling them personally as she rode her bicycle through the charming streets of Mantova. Her dedication to the craft caught the attention of many, laying the foundation for what would become a symbol of luxury and sophistication.

With the support of her husband Vittorio, who managed the sales aspect, the small artisan company blossomed into a larger enterprise. At its peak, Pasotti boasted over one hundred employees, each contributing to the brand’s growing reputation for excellence. Despite changes in the industrial landscape, Pasotti remained committed to the art of handmade umbrellas, focusing on limited edition creations that emphasize quality over quantity.

Enduring Craftsmanship

Today, Pasotti continues to produce approximately 40,000 handmade umbrellas annually. These creations are not just functional items but are considered high-quality works of art. Each umbrella is meticulously crafted using exclusively Italian materials, such as enameled brass handles, Swarovski® crystals, and precious silk fabrics, adorned with marvelous decorations that make each piece unique.

The dedication to using the finest materials and innovative designs sets Pasotti apart. The company’s commitment to creativity and consistent material search is evident in every umbrella, ensuring that each product is a masterpiece in its own right.

A Global Presence

Pasotti’s reach extends far beyond the borders of Italy, with 93% of its turnover generated from international markets. The brand’s luxurious umbrellas are sold in the most prestigious boutiques across 75 countries, including major markets in Europe, North America and China. The company also collaborates with some of the world's most renowned fashion brands, producing private-label collections that further elevate its status in the fashion industry.

The torch of Italian luxury umbrella manufacturing is now carried by Nicola and Andrea Begotti, who represent the next generation of the Pasotti legacy. Their participation in significant fashion weeks and strategic investments in online platforms have propelled the brand’s recognition to new heights, ensuring that Pasotti remains a coveted name in luxury fashion.
