Founded in 1975 by the Dini family, Paul & Shark is today synonymous with Italian elegance and style, with its Men's, Women's, Children's and Accessories collections available in 73 different countries.
INTEGRATED PRODUCTION FROM THE VERY BEGINNING
On 4 March 1957 the Maglificio Daco mill, founded in 1921, opened its doors once again under new owner Gian Ludovico Dini who, nine years later, changed its name to Dama S.p.A. Every aspect of production took place within the company, from producing yarns to making the boxes used to package the clothing. Items were even shipped throughout the world thanks to a prestigious partnership with Christian Dior and Balenciaga.
A JOURNEY AND AN INSPIRATION
At the start of the 1970s Paolo Dini, the eldest son of Gian Ludovico, happened to find himself in a small sailmaker's workshop during a trip to Maine, where the sail from an old 18th-century clipper caught his eye. Its inscription read: Paul&Shark: It was fate.
ITALIAN DESIGN FROM HEAD TO TOE
Over the years the company has expanded greatly to become a comprehensive luxury sportswear range, appreciated by the fans of Italian fashion and high-performance technical materials, many of which have been patented by Paul&Shark.
