Our history

“It all started with a merino wool turtleneck”.

In 1983, Anet Ooijman (the Netherlands) and Salvatore Cascone (Italy) founded Cascone & Co. as a multi-brand agency for several Italian clothing brands, targeting the Dutch and Belgian fashion market. They discovered the manufacturing know-how in Northern Italy, where the tradition of craftsmanship comes together with modern production techniques. Ten years later, upon repetitive request from their clientele, Anet and Salvatore started the production of a few high-quality, yet affordable fashion items. This led to the birth of the women’s wear label no man’s land.

Under their own label, Anet and Salvatore introduced a relatively unknown fabric in the Netherlands. Their merino wool turtleneck, created with a pure, high-quality material, is still one of no man’s land her best-selling items. With their headquarters on the former island of Marken, the Netherlands, and their design studio close to the beautiful city of Venice, Italy, Cascone & Co. is a true European company. Today Cascone & Co. is represented in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Finland.
