Over its 50 year history, Bivolino has built a reputation as a leading supplier of beautifully tailored shirtss - crafted with the ultimate combination of precision and design. But few people know the story behind the brand and how it spearheaded the design innovation we see in shirt manufacturing today.
The Bivolino story begin in 1954, when brothers Louis and Jacques Byvoet founded the company with a joint investment of 8 million francs. Their grandfather, Jacques, had been in the linen trade since 1900 and the name Bivolino was chosen to represent both the family name of Byvoet and linen - the fabric from which Bivolino shirts would be made from. They based the company in Hasselt, in the heart of the Campine in Belgium.
