Pasotti was started in 1956 by Ernesta Pasotti, who began producing one-of-a-kind umbrellas that she sold and delivered on her bicycle. With help of her husband and sales manager, Vittorio Giacomini, the business soon grew from a small artisan shop to a company with over one hundred employees. But today the focus is not on growing, but staying put at its roots. Pasotti is now run by the founder's daughter, Eva Giacomini. Challenging the practice of outsourcing to Asian countries, Pasotti still handcrafts each of its 40,000 umbrellas a year in Italy. The company stands out for its creativity and consistent material search, all exclusively Italian: enameled brass handles, precious silk fabrics and marvelous decorations.
