Alpo, a Como company, specialized in the production of gloves, has a long tradition.This story of style and business begins at the end of the 1800s with Fortunato Portolano, who founded a production and commercial structure in Naples for the leather goods and gloves sector. Of his sons, one of them in the 1940s moved to Milan to manage the export of leather and gloves. At the end of the 1970s, the new generation represented by his son Alberto took over the business, founding the Company Alpo based in Milan and production in Inverigo, in the province of Como. Over the years, the production is enriched with scarves, hats, and socks.To date, Alpo, which combines attention to detail with Italian craftsmanship, can count on partnerships with the most important Italian and foreign companies in the fashion world. At the base of the production process, there is a careful selection of materials, ranging from wool, cashmere, tassel, deer to suede and sheepskins.
