# What is the Gammarelli brand?
The family-owned workshop Gammarelli specialises in making ecclesiastic clothing and is the official Papal tailor. Since 1798, the tailor can be found in a small workshop in Rome, tucked behind the Pantheon.
When the Pope appoints new cardinals, a purple outfit is then made. Hence the cardinal's red socks...
This house is renowned for the quality of its products and for the care of its work well done. For six generations, the Gammarelli family has faithfully watched over the shop's old wooden countertop, covered with sumptuous fabrics.
Some famous individuals wear Gammarelli socks, such as François Fillon and Edouard Balladur.
