The story

For us innovation and tradition are a rule more than a target.
Koh-I-Noor was born more than 80 years ago, as the only importer of the first toothbrushes with celluloid handle made by the Company of the same name. From 1950 starts the whole-italian production, after Koh-I-Noor took over from the Bratislava Company not just the name, but also its know-how, still present in the business DNA: the product range grows up immediately, including accessories as hair brushes, shaving brushes and make up mirrors, integrating more and more in its supply many body care products.
Meanwhile, the vocation of Koh-I-Noor in the bathroom field is increasingly clear, until it founds, in 1995, the Company unit dedicated to bathroom décor. The production is located in Tradate (VA) and the factory is the place where research, design and manufacturing are combined, in the tradition of the best Made in Italy.
