MAVE (before Dei Mandelli) is an Italian company founded in Milan, to provide new fabrics to Designers and Creators and of High Fashion, totally "Made in Italy", in the early seventies. MAVE has always worked in the field of high range TEXTILE. The first twenty years of activity took place in Europe, mainly in Paris, where fabrics to the most famous fashion designers of haute couture, French, plain, printed and embroidered were sold.

During the nineties, we began to explore the Chinese market, later moving there all our productions and expanding the activities in the field of women's clothing. We selected the best equipped and organized garment suppliers. Our supplier of knitting machines Stoll has a hall with 500 electronic machines.

Starting in the nineties, therefore, we also specialized in the import of Textile Fabrics from China, directed to Transformers and Printing mills in Como. We were the first importers to spread the velvet silk / viscose cm. 140, in 1998.

Through the years, the Chinese network of contacts has expanded to almost all the provinces of China, including Mongolia, where today we produce KNITTING, mostly using 100% cashmere yarn fineness of 60/2-80/2; while for lingerie, shirts, quilts, scarves, we move in different areas of China, from Beijing to Shanghai, Shandong, Zhejiang.

Overcoats, double face coats, jackets in Angora / Cashmere are sewn by hand. For all productions, we select the best quality of fabrics, in direct collaboration with some factories and weaving mills that, at the beginning of each season, send us new samples according to the trends and demands they receive from various markets.

Our core businness since the beginnings

At the beginning of its activity, MAVE (Dei Mandelli) used to buy and sell fabrics, silk and mixed, ready to be dyed and printed but already dyed and finished too.

Then, in the early nineties, exactly in 1992, with the exploration of the China market, it was decided to move there all the productions and collaborations, expanding the business to the area of women's clothing. Since the early nineties, we specialize in the import of Textile Fabrics from China, directed to Converters and Printing mills in Como area. Thanks to the cooperation of Chinese weavers we can produce fabrics created by our customers. We monthly receive references of new fabrics that have been realized, always up to date on trends and market demands. We have a collection of hundreds of fabrics besides the classical CDC, Satin, GGT, Stretch, Velvet, etc.., and we are able to satisfy the most "unusual" and sophisticated needs.
