In 1970, after long experiences in leading companies of the sector, Mario Bresciani decided to set up his own business and established the Bresciani sock company (Calzificio M Bresciani srl) in Castiglione delle Stiviere (Mantova, ltaly). For over 40 years Bresciani has been producing gorgeous hand finished socks at the same factory. Bresciani socks are made using only top quality yarns: extra fine merino wool, pure Egyptian cotton, linen, cashmere and 100% silk.
