Marcoliani is an Italian brand established in 2000. It belongs to Calzificio Italiano Srl company which was founded by Giuseppe Gatti. Nowadays Marcoliani specialises in ‘one-size-fits-most’ (not ‘all’!) socks – invisible, mid-calf and over-the-calf ones. They usually fit UK 6 – UK 10.
Marcoliani socks are made in Italy. The brand uses high quality materials: extra-long staple Pima cotton from Peru (sometimes 3-ply), extrafine merino wool, silk and 2-ply cashmere. Most socks are made of blends: for example, 80% cotton + 20% polyamide or 80% merino wool + 20% polyamide or 80% cashmere + 20% nylon. Some Marcoliani socks feature hand-linked toes, but there are also socks with non-flat seams. Of course, invisible socks have silicon bands in the heel area.
