Ebe Group srl
The story of the Di Donato brand began began way back, in 1920, when Alfonso Di Donato, starting with a shoe factory called Didalf, made the family business take off.
In 1970 his son Alfonso Jr turned it into a joint stock company with about 150 employees.
In those years, production was based on high-quality shoes that were exported to the United States.
In 1983, Catello, Alfonso Jr’s son, brought his innovative contribution to the family business by creating “Cap Italia srl”, and in 1990, in collaboration with a pool of small factories located in the territory of Aversa-Carinaro, they reached an average daily production capacity of 1500 shoes, which they exported to the US, Japan and Europe, with an employment level of more than 3000 employees.
So in 2009, after over 90 years of family experience in the footwear and accessories sectors, the Di Donato family created “EBE Group”, a solid, dynamic company that is constantly evolving. A leading company in the accessories and footwear sectors, which is becoming more and more important in the footwear sector, also thanks to a team of young resources that tenaciously follow the market’s evolution in order to guarantee innovative and modern solutions to meet consumer demands.
Since 2009, it has been the licensee of the famous brand Renato Balestra, which it produces and distributes all over the world with a segmented offer based on its customers’ target, thus dividing the collections into 3 categories: RB Balestra, Blu Balestra and Made in Italy.
EBE Group has also contributed to the creation of a new brand, Generated; a collection of “Sneakers & Knitwear” entirely NO GENDER, with the aim of making the classic distinction between sexes more homogeneous, not only in society but also in the world of fashion.
Finally, since the second semester of 2017, EBE Group has been the international licensee of the Swiss brand Egon Von Furstenberg for the production and distribution of footwear and accessories.
