WE ARE GARCIA

Who we are?

We're a bit Italian, a bit Dutch. It's a hard to say where one ends and the other begins. What we agree on is our passion for family. Not because our founding values are born from it, but because we are a family business serving families. It has been a part of our DNA since day 1.

We are GARCIA. We make clothing for the entire family! For Men, Women and Kids. 

OUR ROOTS

Our Story starts in Italy. It's 1972. Maurizio and Isabella open one of the very first Denim factories in Urbania, later known as the valley of jeans. Passion for craftmanship and beautiful jeans comes to life when Maurizio decides to name the brand after the love of his life, Isabella Garcia. A brand is born.

In 1985 misfortune strikes the small factory. To avoid the loss of his many patterns and denim archives, Maurizio decides to hand over these to his loyal customer and friend from the Netherlands, who firmly promises to uphold the brand legacy. 

Today, this coming together of Italian passion and finesse, with a typically Dutch entrepreneurial design, remains key to the fashion brand with a denim heart. 

 

GARCIA nowadays has over 200 employees across Europe.  In 2018, GARCIA was sold in 35 countries, with an estimated turnover of 110 million euros and with the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) as it’s biggest market

GARCIA's head office is located in Ablasserdam (near Rotterdam, the Netherlands).
