Paul&Shark

Integrated production from the very beginning

On 4 March 1957, the mill Maglificio Daco, founded in 1921, opened its doors under the new owner Gian Ludovico Dini. Every aspect of the production took place within the company: from sourcing the yarns to producing the fabrics and making all the packaging. Clothes were shipped around the world thanks to prestigious partnerships with Christian Dior and Balenciaga.

A journey and an inspiration

At the start of the 1970s, Paolo (Paul) Dini, the eldest son of Gian Ludovico, during a trip to a small sailmaker's workshop in Maine, found a sail from an old 18th-century clipper that caught his attention: the inscription read "Paul&Shark".

It was fate.
The Paul&Shark brand was born.
