Side by side
We do our best to interpret the needs of our customers, offering them the opportunity to choose at which stage of the process they would like to insert themselves and how they would like to interact.
We know how to value the ideas of those with a desired product in mind thanks to the know-how we have acquired over time for each stage of the process. In providing inspiration, we act as interpreters of the concept of our clients brand, developing proposals for versatile products and finding the most appropriate solutions in the early stages of development and outsourcing.
At Pespow we have the know-how to deal with a vast range of outerwear items. We are agile in dealing with both small and large production assets, regular large-consumption products or pilot projects with a more experimental and complex nature. What remains are our high standards of quality in both workmanship and the choice of materials.
For over 30 years we have carried out our research and experimentation with determination and confidence. We have embarked on the road of sportswear in an era of great cultural unrest, inheriting the post-modern thought from the 80s of putting together distant worlds and ways. Today, like always, curiosity drives us towards uncharted territory while uniting heritage with dynamic research activity.
History fuels invention
We look for inspiration from the past in order to create cutting-edge models which we readapt in style and fit for a contemporary taste. The historical analysis is conducted through an archive of images and leaders that have given rise to sportswear or have determined in a significant way their evolution. Often, the Pespow archive serves as the basis for designing new models or for researching technical and stylistic solutions
Creative garment engineering
In design, we integrate the most innovative materials and technologies, working in the spirit of blending between different sectors and products. The technical research contributes to the development of creative and unusual applications of materials and technologies that enable the creation of original high-end and high-performance products.
At Pespow, we are far from the branch of fashion that is limited to affixing a signature style with quick consumption. Here we remain faithful to functionalism, respecting the original design of sportswear items: born for a determined use with a specific function and made with ad hoc techniques.
Italian concept. Made in earth.
We identify ourselves with a contemporary “made-in” concept: we organize the production process in such a way so that each operation is carried out in the most appropriate place in the world in terms of quality and efficiency; and most importantly, we communicate to customers and international partners who are looking for an Italian approach and not simply a place of origin.
Compared to the now stereotypical phrase "made in Italy," the prospect of an Italian concept (experimentation, creativity and know-how) is the one that is most suited to our identity and that best expresses the taste and richness of the Italian way.
"Pelle (Italian for ‘leather’) Sportswear" was founded in 1983 by an artisanal company of leather garments. The new heirs have decided to embark on the road of textile apparel, changing the name to Pespow, and transforming the purely artisanal vocation of the family business to research activities into the innovation of materials, processes and techniques.
In the early years of operation, Pespow specialized in the design and manufacture of outerwear sportswear, making its products exclusively in Italian territory.
In the 90s, the company understood the need to offer its customers quality products at increasingly competitive costs, and transferred part of its production to several plants in Eastern Europe.
The years that saw the transition from enterprise to Limited company was a period of great investments for the tuning and development of dyeing techniques which still spearhead the company's activity.
Over the next decade, Pespow looked out for the first time on the newly emerging markets and started a close collaboration with a small company operating in Asia. Asian productions of the highest quality at competitive costs, enhanced by an all-Italian design, are the hallmark of the models produced in those years.
Between 2008 and 2009, strong with an already mature experience, Pespow dedicated itself to two side projects: Ten C, the revolutionary project of the designers Alessandro Pungetti and Paul Harvey and Chat C win, a project that translates the "know how" of Pespow into a stand-alone brand.
In 2010, the by then constant presence in Asia and the continued cooperation with local suppliers, pushed the business to set up a company based in Seoul, responsible for managing the production and logistics of the entire area. The fusion of the latter and Pespow itself in 2012 created a unique and solid reality.
