Paolo Albizzati

Mr. Paolo Albizzati got his start in the 1960s making ties for famous brands in Milan. Supported by his wife Valeria he decided to quit in 1970 and start his own business in the basement of his home. The business grew.

The experience, hard work and skilled hands of workers allowed the transfer to a bigger industrial space. In 1975 Alby Factory was established. All aspects of production is done inside: cut, tip making, stitching, finishing, quality control and shipping.

Alby soon became one of best tie manufactures in Italy. In the 1990s the second generation stepped in and the Paolo Albizzati line was launched. The company decided to move beyond just manufacturing for other brands and invest in proper collection and marketing.

Alby is now a fully integrated business. The neck wear, Paolo Albizzati, is sold in the best stores and boutiques worldwide.
