Pasotti features unique umbrellas with a huge collection of designs, styles, and handles. Our single masterpieces are entirely manufactured in Italy, in a unique sector, and distributed in the best boutiques worldwide. In the countryside of Mantova, we produce handmade luxury umbrellas and export them in every corner of the world, using a brand name that will shortly celebrate its 65th anniversary: Pasotti.
The company stands out for its creativity and consistent material search, all exclusively Italian: enameled brass handles, Swarovski® crystals, precious silk fabrics and marvelous decorations.
“The company was started in 1956” – explains the owner, Mrs Eva Giacomini – “and was founded by my mother, Ernesta Pasotti, who began producing one-of-a-kind umbrellas that she sold directly, sometimes riding her bicycle. Then, with my father Vittorio, who mainly took care of sales, the company grew from a small artisan company to a large one with over one hundred employees. Today we mostly concentrate on limited edition umbrellas. We produce 40,000 handmade umbrellas a year: they are very high quality products that are sold in the most prestigious boutiques in 75 countries. Besides the Pasotti collection, we are proud for a series of private-label cooperations with the most worldwide fashion brands.” The overseas market is truly continuing to grow, thanks to Nicola and Andrea Begotti, who are the embodiment that Italian luxury umbrella manufacturing lives on from generation to generation
