MANTUA – ITALY – STYLIST

The weaves of A.F. Maglieria are made up of the heart and soul of Alberini family, which for over 50 years has worked together and given life to a history of passion for Italian fashion.

The company was born in the 1970’s by the brilliant mind of Paolo Alberini. It immediately distinguishes itself among many other brands because of the quality of its products, drawing the attention of big fashion brands which are always looking for new contractors within the knitwear industry.

A company that is first and foremost a family affair

Paolo with his father Dino and his brother Alberto, creates evolving fashion trends, fueled by passion and long-established craftsmanship. Thanks to A.F. Maglieria, Mantua has gained the nomination of Italian fashion city and the mark of excellence in the Italian textile sector.

For 30 years, A.F. Maglieria has manufactured excellent clothing for the major fashion brands. These are high quality Italian products, they are sold all over the world, making Alberini proud, and his legacy lasting.

And so, the story, supported by successes and great accomplishments, reaches the 2000’s.

Simone, Paolo’s son, enters the company with the same passion as his father and fresh ideas that will change the future of A.F. Maglieria. He wants to create something new that, on one side, will be based on the huge experience gained in time and, on the other side, embodies creative talent.

Something that, as Simone tells us “was really ours”. In many ways it’s like starting from scratch, with exciting family gatherings around tables to test fabrics and to design new prototypes.
Soon after the Curling Collection was born. It is composed by knits goods, realized by high quality yarn dedicated to women.

The overall design of Curling Collection products is essential, it looks for evenness, for a timeless elegance. The main materials, cashmere and quality wool, are selected with strict Made in Italy criteria- thanks in essence to an in-depth knowledge of all the country’s weavers, gained from over 30 years of work on behalf of third parties. Curling Collection is a fantastic adventure, which brings a powerful company back into the fashion game, unearthing its origins and rediscovering the “artisan passion’, of its beginnings.
A beautiful journey and story, not finished yet!

A.F. Maglieria takes long strides, and in 2018 a new offshoot was born: A. Mantò. This collection of knitwear clothing for women, has its focus on  the concept of Made in Italy in its attention to details and  to quality of the wool, cashmere and silk. The items are refined, but in opposition to Curling Collection, A.Mantò is more interested in representing the present time, in experimenting and in changing collection to colleciton.

As Mantua, A.F. Maglieria is a secret treasure of Made in Italy

It is important to note that A. Mantò is a tribute to Manto, the legend of the founder and fortune teller of Mantua, where she was born and where A.F. Maglieria has its roots. Mantua is not just a city, it represents a continuous source of inspiration for the Alberini family since “it is a small place, but full of extreme beauty”, as Simone sais.

And just like Mantua, the quality products of A.F. Maglieria are a true hidden treasure of Made in Italy philosophy. One that, once discovered, steals your heart forever.
