Maffei: "MADE IN ITALY" PRIDE
Brazil celebrates the Olympic Games with umbrellas “made in Borgomanero” Brazil chose Italy for the closing ceremony of the Olympics 2012. A Brazilian dancer was standing on a “machine” covered by many coloured umbrellas made by Maffei Srl, an historic umbrella factory based in Borgomanero (North Western Italy) . Co-owner Michele Maffei says :”A scenography agency commissioned us 75 umbrellas. The final product is completely made in Italy, the fabric comes from a producer in our area and during the production we looked after every detail. The drawings on the fabric are handmade too. We felt so happy and proud when we saw our parasols during the ceremony. Working for the Olympic games has been an outstanding event in the history of our Company ”.
Maffei Srl employs 10 workers to make high quality umbrellas and parasols. "We care" about our customers, that is why the majority of our materials are recyclable and some type of fabric is developed specifically to stop UV rays.”
