# What is the Gammarelli brand?
The family workshop Gammarelli specializes in the making of ecclesiastical vestments and is the official and exclusive supplier of the Popes. Founded in 1970, this sewing workshop is located in Rome in a small shop near the Pantheon.
When the Pope appoints new cardinals, a purple outfit is then made. Hence the cardinal's red socks...
The house is renowned for the quality of its pieces and its attention to detail. For six generations the Gammarelli family has worked hard at the shop’s old wooden counter, covered with the most sumptuous fabrics.
