The history of CRIPE ‘weaves’ through 37 years, bringing it to the forefront of the quality textiles industry. It all began in Como, in Northern Italy, where Filippo Mambretti founded a fabrics company under his name in 1920. Its reputation spread quickly and some years later, his son, Peppo Mambretti, together with Crisanthi Papamichail, realised their dream of expanding into Greece by founding the CRIPE (CRIsanthi-PEppo) company in Thessaloniki. Over time, CRIPE expanded from dealing solely in Filippo Mambretti Spa fabrics and special orders to include an impressive range of textiles from well known, top-quality international manufacturers.
The luxury fabrics of Zimmer+Rohde (Z+R) from Germany, the classic designs of Ardecora from Italy, the sophisticated French company Etamine, the striking creations of Britain’s Timney Fowler and Hodsoll McKenzie, cutting-edge Dedar and the exquisite cloths of Brochier from Italy, Luigi Bevilacqua who weaves on traditional Venetian looms and opulent creations by Art&Decor in silk and velvet are all exclusively represented in Greece by CRIPE.
CRIPE, with its many years of experience and its intimate knowledge of the quality textiles business, has established its own unique aesthetic vision. Using fabric as a medium, CRIPE illustrates the power of inspiration, the quality of design and finally, the thrill of the creation. An extensive range of thousands of different designs, textures and colours allow for countless combinations when creating or redecorating stylish homes, exclusive hotels, luxury yachts, modern offices and other private or professional spaces that demand a sophisticated and refined appearance.
The specialized team at CRIPE serve with passion, imagination and professionalism to realize the most demanding design project, demonstrating the dynamic and inspired philosophy of CRIPE.
