Il Gufo was founded in 1980 by Giovanna Miletti, a mother of 3 children under the age of 5 who amused herself by creating her own bibs and clothing. From season to season sales grew and today Il Gufo is a leading Italian luxury clothing brand for children, specialized in designing, producing and distributing unique, high-quality collections for children from 0 to 14 years. Il Gufo takes pride in producing unique handmade, high-quality articles made almost exclusively from natural fibers and carefully selected fabrics.
With its motto – “Children dressed as children” – Il Gufo’s collections are showcased on the bi-annual catwalk at the Pitti Immagine Bimbo Fashion Show in Florence each Summer and Winter.
