Founded in 1978 in Montegranaro, the very heart of one of the first and most important footwear districts in Italy, Romit has been created thanks to the initiative of the brothers Enrico and Giovanni Ciccola, Bruno and Otello Romitelli, who wanted to start their entrepreneurial pathway. The humble origins and values in common are the binding elements of this adventure becoming, in a few years, a distinguished industrial enterprise.
Based on its strong innovative and international attitude, the company aims immediately at the top, and nowadays it represents the perfect union of industry and craftsmanship, with an average production capacity of 800 pairs of shoes a day, made in compliance with the most rigorous and traditional criteria of craftsmanship quality.
The footwear production activity in Marche became industrial at the end of the 19th century, but the phenomenon has deep historical and cultural roots. The origins of the Marche footwear production district can be dated back to the 15th century, when little craftsman workshops were already known beyond the regional confines. The towns involved at that time were Montegranaro, Monte Urano, Monte San Giusto and Sant’Elpidio a Mare and they later influenced the areas nearby, both in North and in South.
The initial production was the one of the Chiochiere, namely slippers made of fabric or leather, with no heel and with a light horsehide sole. The shoes production at industrial level began to develop only in the 20th century between the two world wars, when shoemaking masters activities started developing in a larger footwear production area, district-alike, in the territories of Fermo and Macerata.
The realisation of a shoe requires countless passages, it is the result of a large number of manufacturing processes that need to be executed by an expert craftsman. In Romit, the style concepts undergo a scrupulous production process, looking towards the future but still solidly entrenched in tradition. The extreme attention to every single detail makes every shoe produced in Romit laboratories both durable and comfortable, elegant and refined.
The respect for the craftsmanship tradition and the continuous technological innovation constitute the basis of the company’s success, constantly aiming to the perfect union of quality and design, fashion and the best of the craftsmanship expertise.
Based on an innovative and organised structure, binding at best the flexibility of the craftsman’s laboratory with the ability to manage the production peaks characterising an industrial organisation, Romit has always been partner of the main luxury brands.
The deep knowledge of the footwear production trade, combined with the long-term visit of the most important international maisons allow Romit team to rapidly and adequately respond to every necessity of the top brands, to get, without interruption and ensuring the best quality, from the designer studio to the catwalk and then to shops in the most prestigious fashion streets.
