In the early 1970s, Paolo (Paul) Dini, Gian Ludovico's eldest son, during a trip to a small sailmaker's workshop in Maine found a sail from an old 18th-century clipper that caught his attention: the inscription read "Paul & Shark". This is where it all began.
The brand's mission has always been the pursuit of excellence in both the quality of materials and manufacturing. This mission has today made Paul & Shark a lifestyle and responsible brand inspired by the ocean, with a contemporary vision of style that carries in its DNA the respect for the Planet.
