Giuseppe Marenzi founded Herno on the shores of Lake Maggiore, Italy in 1948 with his wife Alessandra Diana. After working for a company that manufactured raincoats, he decided to use his knowledge to found a brand of his own. By waterproofing cotton using castor oil, he produced raincoats that were well received in the area due to the wet and rainy climate around the lake. Marenzi then went on to expand his business and create cashmere coats, jackets and dresses for women.
Herno's outerwear is designed with both practically and luxurious high end fashion in mind. Made with great attention to detail and skilled workmanship, the brand produces a range of high quality clothing, perfect for any modern woman.
