WE MAKE MASTERPIECES FOR OVER A CENTURY
Our story begins in 1908 with a great passion fostered by our founder and forefather for shaving and for personal care. In that nascent period, in his small artisan workshop in the centre of Florence, he started to produce his first masterpieces: his extraordinary shaving brushes, made entirely by hand with great skill and precision, and increasingly refining his technique with an ever greater knowledge of his materials. Following his brushes, he then started to work with precious woods to create some extraordinary razors. His abilities started to become known the world over, so much so that prestigious names abroad would commission him to design some magnificent shaving sets for them.
In still distant times, other predecessors of ours were to carry on the path that was taken by our founder and decided to join forces with another artisan company that produced exceptional shaving soaps and creams, eventually taking over the whole business, but only after having learned the methods and secrets of the working process. The following years would be years of hard work, characterised by a working process that requires a lot of passion and craftsmanship. Progress would of course involve more and more production processes, that could still combine the most traditional aspects of artisan methods with the use of ever more sophisticated equipment and precision tools. Mondial will always continue to assert itself on the domestic and international market, but what will increase the value of our brand will be a great attention to detail, a careful and rigorous selection of the best base materials and above all a heartfelt passion that has brought us together for four generations. Our current business, driven by an intense passion for the world of fragrances and perfumes, has for several years undertaken a very ambitious project that has led us to produce a few truly extraordinary lines of male fragrances that are strong in character and sophistication. Our prestigious Collections are the fruit of our collaboration with other great perfumers and each one features a special and unmistakeable fragrance. Today, Mondial is the ultimate expression of Italian excellence in the world of men's shaving and cosmetics.
BETWEEN TRADITION AND MODERNITY
Our mission is taking care of your skin to give it the perfect shave, by first preparing it as comfortably as possible for stress-free contact with the razor and then caring for it afterwards with highly moisturising, soothing and incredibly refreshing products. In our desire to return to the past, to the beards of yesteryear and the old traditions that have been revisited with a modern approach, our OLD BARBERSHOP collection is of course aimed at Barber Shops themselves and to everyone who wants to treat themselves to a shave at home just like the one you get at the barbers.
