The History of a Family


FILIPPO CATARZI is one of the most important and ancient Italian hat manufacturers, specialized in the production of fashion accessories in straw, felt, leather and fabric. It is a fourth-generation family company that has managed to combine tradition and craftsmanship with research, creativity and industrial organization.

From the family stories it appears that in 1910 Olderigo Catarzi, a hay stacker, opened the company with the name of his firstborn Filippo, thus manifesting the will to give life to something destined to continue in the following generations. Today, Maurizio, great-grandson of Olderigo, leads this historic business together with his wife Stefania

The story of FILIPPO CATARZI is the story of a family that has invested in resources and skills, which has managed over the course of a century to grow and develop because it has believed in its work, in the knowledge transmitted from generation to generation, fueled not only by commitment but also from dreams and fantasy, with the common goal of preserving what was received as an inheritance, but also of handing it down and making it grow.

These 110 years of intelligent and passionate management have transformed the artisan workshop of the beginning into an avant-garde industrial reality, capable of cultivating its development ambitions without ever departing from quality and Made in Italy.
