Pietro Paolo Cavaliere
The roots and heart of Sartoria Cavaliere
Pietropaolo Cavaliere, for all Paolo, was born in 1948, in the province of Caserta, in full after the war. Italy was counting on the massive damage suffered. With constant difficulties, sacrifices and deprivations, but armed with infinite hope, his people began to rebuild high. Paul, began working at age 10, contributing to the country’s reconstruction, morale and material. Having to choose a craft, choose the craft: the SARTO
The renowned “Sartoriali” workshops in Naples, where with patience and passion a piece of cloth becomes a work of art, become its “School”. The mastery of the Neapolitan Sartoria inspires Paul more and more. Italy is on the rise for years. The Neapolitan Sartoria begins to impose itself, to make its way into the world. It is opposed to that English. Two different and decisive styles: the English with the classic and impeccable applomb; The Neapolitan one with soft line and the famous shirt sleeve, also called “MAPPINA”.
At the turn of the 60s and 70s, some historical tailors began to blend the manual art of sewing with more modern techniques. The awareness of creating a tailor-made product, but at the same time industrial, quickly allows its diffusion on a large scale.
ABLA was born, a brand still recognized throughout the world of men’s tailoring high fashion. Paolo worked at ABLA for about 25 years. In this context, he has the opportunity to interact with high-profile technicians: ENZO LEONARDI, ANTONIO FUSCO, NINO PECORARO AND THE SAME Commendatore BLASI, founder of the company of the same name.
The birth of Sartin
From Paolo to Bruno, Pasquale and Marco
After ABLA he begins a journey independently, creating tailor-made suits for many admirers of sartorial clothing. Everyone trusts its taste and cut. At the end of the 90s a new adventure begins with Angelo Blasi and with Sartoria Partenopea that will last 15 years.
Paolo transmits his love for tailoring to his sons Carmine, Pasquale and Marco who follow him in this company. In a short time, each of them will play an important role in that new company, which will quickly establish itself on the market in a decisive way. But Paolo is a creative. It belongs to the Old School of Neapolitan Tailors. It needs to build.
Thus, at the end of the Parthenopean Tailoring chapter, he encourages and encourages his sons, Pasquale and Marco, to found the “SARTIN”, where the garments are controlled and followed by Paolo’s mastery.
SARTIN, founded by Pasquale and Marco, with the help of Bruno, has as its main objective the care of the product and the return to origins. The true tailoring that recaptures the flavor of handmade things. SARTIN employs 15 workers, including Pasquale and Marco, small but structured like a large company.
