Santillo was founded in 1970 as the result of a strong passion for handmade shirt, which has been handed down from generation to generation. Today the company’s aim is to preserve the ancient tailoring tradition and for this reason Santillo 1970 is still a family-run business: in addition to the founder and tailor Angela, her daughter, two sons, two embroiderers and three cutters and pattern makers cooperate to create Santillo “Masterpiece” Shirts.
Across the years, part of the management of the company has passed from the parents to the children all of whom have projected it into the future by carrying their creations to a higher level.
They’ve accomplished this by setting up their own online shop, by carefully studying the different markets and by actively collaborating with numerous established international buyers. The result is their showroom in Milan, which showcases Santillo creations to international markets. This has meant that now one can admire and purchase Santillo wear in New York and Tokyo, as well as in many foremost European capitals. Santillo is actively present on all the major social networks which makes it possible to personally interact with the team, enter into the Santillo world and take in all of that which renders their work unique.
Care, attention and pursuit of perfection are such well-rooted values in the spirit of the entire production process of Santillo. The fabrics are the result of an intense and constant search for the best quality and the most sought, carried by Gennaro and Saverio who are regularly at trade fairs in Milan, Paris and in the most sought British textile companies.
