About us

"Our company has earned the trust of its customers by setting high standards. Quality means doing things the way they should be done, paying attention to details. To create high-quality knitwear, a series of steps are necessary. We can become faster and we can become more efficient - but we cannot eliminate any of the necessary steps. This what my father did before I was born, and this is what we want to do, too."

The company's roots date back to 1978, when Raniero Ottaviani founded what is still the production nucleus of today's company. In 1993, Raniero's three children - Mauro, Simona, and Elena - took over the group, inspired by their father's work but looking for a way of evolving it to take the family legacy even further. Initially, the group specialised as a high-level service offering quality support to its customers, who are among the most discerning names in Italian and international menswear. The company's geographical location in the heart of Umbria's production region guarantees access to top-level craftsmanship and expertise of great culture and tradition. In 2014, the company began to market its own brand, embarking upon the path of worldwide sales in 2018. The entry of expert professionals from the world of fashion into the project enabled the definition of its programme and today makes MAURO OTTAVIANI an international brand that targets the contemporary luxury market.

Passion, innovation, and coherence. These characterise the work of our brand, which aims to provide a concrete response to the needs of contemporary men, who are accustomed to dynamic rhythms yet still capable of appreciating the values of quality and design. The search for raw materials became a central element, following the philosophy that high performance is obtained when design and functionality are perfectly balanced. .
