About Peserico

Peserico embodies the passion for high couture and great manufacturing tradition in the region of Veneto. The company was created in 1962 by Maria Peserico in Cornedo Vicentino, in the province of Vicenza, as a small workshop specializing in pants for women, and in less than a decade, it became a larger company with 50 employees.

In 1975, Maria’s husband, Giuseppe Peruffo became the Manager and added to the work done for third parties, the brand name collection of pants and skirts. The production was rooted in the local tradition, but in the 80s the distribution started expanding abroad. The constant growth and the international success lead Peserico to expand its creative universe: in the 90s the collections grew to cover the total look, and were produced exclusively in Italy.

The brand is lead today by the second generation of the same family: Riccardo Peruffo is the CEO and the Creative Director, together with his wife Paola Gonella.

The Peserico brand is distributed to 1110 stores all over the world and in more than 20 brand stores. Cappellini is also part of the company, the young, sporty and contemporary line of women’s wear.
