Marfel is family-run business based just outside Porto and one of the oldest shirt manufactures in Portugal.
We have been in the business since 1954, initially producing men’s woven dress shirts exclusively for our own brands - Triple Marfel and Rosa Negra.
To meet the market needs, we have undergone through a restructuring process to develop our technical capacity and standardising production and gradually, we expanded our range of products to manufacture men’s and women’s dress and casual woven shirts, as well as, knitted shirts, knitted polo shirts and overshirts for high-end fashion retailers.
Nowadays, private label business takes approximately 80% of our whole production capacity.
The company currently employs 250 skilled workers and has a daily production capacity of around 1500 shirts, offering a low MOQ of 300 units per style.
We are able to develop and source any type of fabric and accessory in accordance with the customer demands and these can be purchased from international suppliers or sourced locally for better costing and efficiency.
We also have a lot of flexibility when it comes to custom orders, including the ability to use custom patterns, or creating them in-house.
Further to this, Marfel also runs another textile sector, exclusively dedicated to the weaving of polyamide and polyester knitted fabric (nylon) and owns the local companies: Coveli - Indústria de Vestuário Lda.and Felveste - Empresa de Confecções Lda., as well as capital holdings in Marfel Iberica, SA – Barcelon/Spain.
