Luigi Carnevali: customer service, quality and sustainability

These are the three keywords that guide this historic company that has become a reference point for the sale of high-quality thermoadhesive and self-adhesive reinforcements for footwear, leather goods and clothing, now also GRS certified.

The history of Luigi Carnevali is rooted far back in time, even to the early 1900s, when it appeared on the market specializing in the production and sale of buckles, seals and embroidery, the latter being particularly popular in the 1920s and 1930s.

Since the 1960s, the company, based in Buccinasco, in the province of Milan, has specialized in the marketing of thermoadhesive and self-adhesive reinforcements for the footwear and, later, the leather goods industry.

The quality of the products and the attention and closeness to the customer soon lead Luigi Carnevali to become a partner of such prestigious brands and maisons as Bottega Veneta, Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Christian Louboutin.

As well as distinguishing itself for being a company that is always in step with the times, able to offer customers cutting-edge items, such as gutta-percha, an exclusive material made from natural and incredibly breathable rubber, which Luigi Carnevali introduced as a pioneer in Italy and of which he is still a dealer, used to reinforce leather.

In 2017 Luigi Carnevali S.a.s. completed a merger with its sister company Resinoll, which specializes in the sale of thermoadhesive reinforcements for clothing. This is an important merger, which allows the company to offer customers a truly complete, all-around range of products, ranging from reinforcements for footwear and leather goods to leather and fabric clothing.

“The merger with our sister company Resinoll has allowed us to take advantage of the synergies between the various divisions and build on the know-how and expertise we have gained in different sectors, such as accessories versus apparel. So, for example, if in apparel we have imported more structured materials where it was required, in footwear we have introduced lighter and more invisible reinforcing materials, to the great satisfaction of our most demanding customers. Without a doubt, this ‘migration of skills’ has led us to have better and better results in all the areas in which we operate.”
