Rossi 1931 is a family owned company founded in 1931 by Antonio Rossi, the grandfather of Mattia and Taddeo.
Initially the production consisted of fine traditional florentine stationery, very popular with the American and British communities living in nearby Florence.
The proximity of Florence with its beauty, its art and its cosmopolitism has been of great significance for the development of the company.
Rooted in tradition but open to the world and to innovative ideas, the company has evolved into a modern factory producing, in addition to stationery, decorative papers, greetings cards, notebooks and journals, paper gift items and more.
Many designs have changed over the years, what has not changed is the high quality of all components and of the items themselves, the great care in the creation, production and packaging.
It is in our factory near Florence that the synthesis of creativity, artisan skills and technical ability becomes reality.
It goes without saying that every item is entirely made in Italy!
Founded in 1931 in Borgo San Lorenzo (Florence) by Antonio Rossi, Rossi 1931 srl developed its production skills during the years, supported by the success of its fine stationery and decorative papers that were more and more appreciated all over the world.
Since its establishment, Rossi 1931 srl has come a long way.
Antonio gave a great impulse to his artisan activity developing a small production of fine cards and paper for correspondance, mainly addressed to foreign tourists who after the second world war started to visit the major Italian cities of Art.
Shortly before the 35th anniversary of his activity, on June 2, 1965 the President of the Italian Republic conferred the decoration of “Cavaliere” to Antonio Rossi for his working merits.
In the following years Giorgio, his son, started to compete in a larger market. He made a hard engagement that had positive results thanks to the constant research of advanced technologies that could be compatible with the peculiar characteristics of traditonal production.
The 70th anniversary of the foundation of the company, in 2001, coincided with a further enlargement of the factory and the introduction of new and highly specialized machines.
The secret of Rossi’s great success is a mixture of love for the Italian tradition and attention to technological innovations. Despite the great development of the past years, Rossi 1931 srl keeps intact its traditional structure based on a family system.
Greeting cards of any kind, fine social stationery, writing papers, journals, decorative papers and gift items are the heart of Rossi’s production.
It is in the factory of Borgo San Lorenzo that the synthesis of creativity, artisan skills and technical ability becomes reality.
A very important hot relief stamping system is at work here and it is used especially for the production of cards which are unique in their taste and technical realization. The printing process used for the production of wrapping papers is based on ancient technical devices that give a peculiar brilliancy to the colours. Moreover, gold finishing is printed by using bronze powder. There are many modern machines that allow our skilled workers to secure day by day a constant and planned superior production.
