OUR STORY


Family Run, Product Focused

In 1988, Angelo Gandolfi - a former soccer player - had a bold dream. Combining his love for sports to his passion for excellence, he wanted to create a company with one goal: to design and produce high quality, high value sports gear for pros and amateurs alike, focusing on product excellence and service.

Erreà® was born in Parma, Italy and before long the symbol could be seen on a number of sports clubs, from junior leagues to some of the most famous and respected clubs in Italy and around the world, from basketball to soccer, to volleyball, rugby and other sports, who chose Erreà® as their technical partner.

Through the years, we never forgot our roots and that’s why we keep investing in researching, testing, designing and redesigning to bring you the highest performing fabrics and technologies and the widest selection of products for any sport or training needs. 3DWear®, our first high-tech signature base layer collection launched in 2005, was a natural evolution of this philosophy. A few years later we introduced Active Tense®, a breakthrough evolution in technical sportswear, transcending the postural clothing market to help pro and amateur athletes achieve their maximum potential. Our innovative products have become a large and versatile collection that continues to be a favorite across all sports and athletic levels worldwide.

Today, Erreà® remains a family-run company proudly focused on the latest in sport apparel technology and Italian design. Striving to provide comprehensive solutions for every stage of performance, training and recovery, we keep Angelo’s dream alive as we continue to expand our sportswear vision each year with products to help you become a tremendous success.

Just like you never stop improving, we never stop focusing on quality, service and you.

A Dedicated Level
of Quality

Our Research & Development process is rigorous and tough. Investing in quality is our core value and we surround ourselves with a dedicated and diverse team of designers, osteopaths, physios and professional athletes who work along with our textile and production experts. Our goal is to bring out the best performance in our garments, which we know will bring out the best performance in you. On top of that, while many other companies are delocalizing and outsourcing most of their operations, Erreà invested to maintain control of the manufacturing process, from raw material selection to end-consumer delivery.

Customization and
Italian Design

For the past 30 years, Erreà® has thrived on being able to meet the needs of athletes at every level, on any field. Combining our flexible manufacturing process with our in-house Italian designers cuts down on the time needed to create garments for teams of all sizes and sports to look their best on the field, rink, or wherever the play. It also lets us create gear to teams’ specifications down to the last detail and deliver the highest quality products with more variety than any other brand.

Social
Responsibility

Sustainability is at the core of our business; from employing innovative materials and manufacturing processes to being a part of our employees’ community. Our dedication to thoughtful practices and our rigorous controls on the chemicals used from raw materials to finished products made us the first European company in the industry to obtain Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certification in 2007, guaranteeing that Erreà® products and materials are held to the highest health and safety standards. We believe that to create the best products we can, we must use the best methods possible.
