Cressi was originally founded in 1946 as a diving company rich in innovation and product development. An entirely family owned and operated Italian brand, Cressi was the first company to produce items such as the diving mask with dedicated nose pocket, and the adjustable open heel fins. Since the beginning, all Cressi products have been designed and manufactured in Italy using Cressi’s own machinery and equipment. To this day, Cressi remains an innovator in product research, development and manufacturing. Cressi is a full 360 degree water sports company, as it manufactures its own products for Diving, Spear Fishing, Snorkeling and Swimming.
