The history of the Sartoria di Giuseppe Ancona is almost one hundred years old. Its passion, in fact, is the result of a passage of witness that lasted more than 3 generations, starting from the grandfather who in 1932 started the family tradition in the field of neckties. His skill and passion for craftsmanship led his grandfather, then his father Raffaele and his uncle Franchino to develop the company into the field of shirts, jackets and sleeved pieces.
Giuseppe Ancona’s fame has spread to the whole Bari region and beyond. Professionals, entrepreneurs and businessmen from all over the region came to their headquarters, founded at the beginning of the 1960s, to test their products. As a result, Giuseppe has always lived in the world of textiles and handicrafts, savouring its traditions and sharing with his family the sector’s ambitions for growth.
After years of study, research and work, Giuseppe has consolidated the methods and tools to create a new quality product that reflects all the creativity and know-how of the Italian tradition, specialising in the field of shirt textiles.
The search for detail, the highest quality, the passion for clothing and tailor-made work are the ingredients that make up the recipe of Giuseppe Ancona shirts.
Each phase of the manufacturing process is followed solely and exclusively in the tailor’s workshop by highly qualified local workers. This means that throughout the production process the steps are controlled and managed by Giuseppe himself, without entrusting them to third parties, thus compromising quality.
All our shirts have thick Australian mother-of-pearl buttons, are sewn at 9 stitches per cm and made with 3 basic hand-made passages (armholes, fourth shoulder and yoke) all in the pure Italian sartorial tradition!
