A sewing machine and two entrepreneurs who had a truth: to translate love into children's clothes.
That's how it all began ...
Malharia Brandili was founded in 1964 in the town of Apiúna (SC) by Carl Heinz Brandes and Lili Elza Bernardi Brandes, a couple of entrepreneurs who started a dream built with a lot of attention to detail, love and dedication.
The first items made were clothes for christening parties. The impeccable workmanship quickly drew the attention of the market and made the small knitwear mill stand out in the segment.
It did not take long for the company to grow and to start its industrial complex. By the 1990s, Brandili was already supplying all the states in the country and concentrating its production on 100% cotton garments.
The turn of the century marked the emergence of the Mundi brand, which gained partnerships with licensed characters (such as Senninha and Turma da Mônica) and also participation in the main textile fairs (Fenin, Texfair).
In 2009 a major milestone was reached: the opening of the first exclusive shop, in the Ibirapuera Shopping Centre (SP), and the creation of the Brandili Fan Club, an online channel for relationships between mothers and the brand.
From then on the story of growth and success did not stop: In 2010 another production unit was inaugurated in the city of Otacilio Costa (SC) and the following year the factory shop in Apiúna (SC). In 2013, the new administrative headquarters was implemented in Blumenau (SC), allowing Brandili to be closer to its clients and suppliers, expanding business opportunities and attracting new talent.
The 50th anniversary was in 2014 and a very special one, with the inauguration of the New World Class Expedition - an innovative technology and logistics project, a pioneer in the Brazilian textile sector and in Latin America. In the same year, the doors of the Carl Heinz Brandes Memorial, were reopened. A space that brings back our history through the memories of the founders that we honour so much.
In 2015, it was recognized by ABRINQ as a "Child-friendly Company", due to the initiatives that defend the rights and exercise of citizenship of children and adolescents. In 2016, Brandili was elected one of the best companies to work for in Brazil - Great Place to Work Retail Ranking. The year 2017 was marked by the launch of one of the brand's most important projects: Brandili Love Chain.
A successful track record, which fills us with pride and inspires us every day to do more and better!
