Founded 1946 in Italy
Based in Milano

Enrico Bollini, the founder of Fratelli Bollini, started the company on his own in 1946. In 1950 the shoe factory moved to its current location and in 1958 Henry was joined by his sons Aristide and Hildebrand. The brothers have been running the business since 1996.

It is a family business where art and passion have been passed down from generation to generation. The experience gained over the years, transmitted from father to son, mean that any product manufactured in this small workshop is truly unique.
