Maffei is an italian company that was started 70 years ago. Over time the business became more and more specialized in the manufacture of garden umbrellas and outdoor protection covers. To do so Maffei partitioned its production in 2 main lines: MaPro for extensive commercial use parasols and Maffei for both commercial and not commercial ones. Maffei has been defined as an oxymoron as it combines the production skills of an industrial factory and the artisan knowledge that makes every product unique. Maffei offers a wide range of umbrellas and side pole umbrellas available in different sizes. Many materials are involved in the production: aluminum, steel, fiberglass, wood for frames, acrylic, polyester, olefin and cotton for fabrics. One feature is never missing: quality. Maffei produces also outdoor protection covers both for its products and on demand for other brands products. These covers are unique thanks to a special waterproof and breathable fabric called Mytex, which is a Maffei’s exclusive. Mytex has been more and more improved over the last years. Maffei cares about the environment. Fabric scraps are reused whenever it is possible and umbrellas spare parts are available to keep using the same product through time.
