Our brand and our history

The 1950s and 1960s

In the years after WWII, Amedeo Ferrante, a tradesman from Abruzzo region in central Italy, understands the potentiality of mixing wool yarns and starts a small knitwear company: the first collections receive an enthusiastic welcome, giving satisfaction to the entrepreneur and his sons, who are participating in the venture.


Around the mid-sixties, Gianfranco, son of Amedeo, suggests to move with the family to Pescara, new urban center in great expansion. Showing since the beginning a strong vocation for entrepreneurship, he creates also his own knitwear line, while taking care of a wholesale business that allowed him to be in contact with the most innovative fashion trends of the following decade.

Our philosophy

Our company, Amedeo Ferrante, has always been inspired by a deep passion: that for quality, for elegance, for well-dressing.

In each Ferrante product there are sixty years of experience and care to all the phases of manufacturing, from the choice of the best yarns to the care for details. Amedeo and Emiliano, the two brothers leading the company today, grew-up embedded in tradition, of which they have the knowledge and for which they have a passion: therefore, they continue to check personally the entire life-cycle of the collections, working constantly side-by-side with those who design as well as those who manufacture the clothes.

The dream that they are fulfilling is that of integrating tradition and innovation: to combine the endowment of wise artisan mastery that they’ve inherited, with a greater attention to style and appearance. New professionals and fashion designers, carefully selected, collaborate with a staff of experienced knitters to create together unique clothes.

The quality and reliability of Ferrante translates into wearability and contemporary trends, construing the renewed passion of the company: to clothe with style.

Clothing care

Wool is a natural fiber that has clothed mankind for more than twenty-five thousand years. Still today its chemical and physical qualities makes it inimitable: its molecular structure assures a natural strength and flexibility of the fiber, which translates in a quick recovery of the original shape and resistance to creases, giving soft yet crease-resistant clothes with a perfect wearability.

Wool molecule, moreover, shares with our skin a protein that protects us from UV rays, while the fiber waving – and the air that remains entrapped in it – acts as a natural heat regulator: that’s why wool keeps warm when it’s cold. However, not many people know that light wool helps keeping cool when it’s hot.

An innovative and versatile fiber produced by nature, wool has been improved by science, which has produced an exceptional variety of weights, weaves and colors, allowing to create soft, light and comfortable clothes for both formal and casual wearing.

We, at Amedeo Ferrante, know that still today no other fiber has such characteristics. We always want the best for our clients. Therefore, our clothes 100% wool carry the Woolmark brand, that certifies composition and quality. That is why, for so many consumers around the world, the brand Ferrante means absolute guarantee.
