FROM THE WEST COAST OF CANADA
In late 2008, Cima Coppi was started by Lawrence, a Canadian, and Patricia, a Spaniard, in Little Italy in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. Back then, the pair traded bottles of Italian and Spanish wine for wool scraps and a few trade secrets from Angelo and Renzo – two of the finest Italian tailors on ‘the Drive’. Mostly though, the visits were simply motivated by a fondness to hear craftsmen talk about their trade and share first-hand stories about duels between Coppi and Bartali. It was Renzo Montagliani, a tailor for 53 years, who insisted on the name Cima Coppi. “La Cima Coppi, Il meglio del meglio!” Thank you, Renzo.
TO THE MOUNTAINS OF NORTHERN SPAIN
In 2015, we decided to make a life long dream of moving to Europe a reality, so we crammed all our machines into a crate and shipped them across the ocean. We arrived here, to our current location in Oviedo, the small capital of Asturias in northern Spain nestled in the foothills of the Cantabrian Mountains. We were lured by the steep, quiet mountain roads of the region along with and its coastal paths with sweeping vistas, and we feel beyond lucky to now have this community as our testing grounds and home.
