The brand’s winning formula is a blend of high quality, craftsmanship, technology, research and innovation, creativity and attention to detail handed down for three generations and remaining true to itself. Paul&Shark is an example of Italian excellence that has endured two world wars, changing its production over the years, from making aircraft wing covers during World War I to starting a knitwear factory that worked as a supplier for major French and Italian fashion houses. Followed by the establishment of the Paul&Shark brand in 1976, in Maine, the American state where the love for the sea is paramount, and founder Paolo Dini saw a faded inscription on the bow of an old clipper, in a small sailmaker ‘s workshop, that read “Paul&Shark” and welcomed as a sign. In 1978, Paul&Shark C0P918 pullover was born: a sailing sweater that would go onto become an icon. Instantly recognizable from its packaging (a metal can used on board ships as a multi-purpose container) “the pullover for the sea” saw immediate success and signaled the start of a whole new water repellent knitwear collection.
