Herno was founded in 1948 in Lesa, Italy, on the shores of Lake Maggiore, by Giuseppe Marenzi and his wife Alessandra Diana. The brand, still family-owned, values the traditional handmade touch, while incorporating innovative processes, such as heat-bonded taping and ultrasound stitching. These methods allow for the use of extremely fine down, which acts as an incredible insulator while remaining remarkably lightweight.
