Laboratorio del Carmine was founded in 1969 by Mrs. Rosanna Gherardi and her husband Antonio Ruch. After working under a contract for the first year, in 1970 they started their own small collection of men's shirts that were sold in some major regions of Italy. Today, they are located in the region of Lombardy in Northern Italy.

Laboratorio del Carmine began offering custom tailoring in the 1980s. In the 1990s, the second generation of Ruch family made its entry into the company. This generation started an intense phase of investments in space and technology; most notably the construction of the new factory—operational since late 1999. Despite the changes, Laboratorio de Carmine has always upheld the fine details of their product; instilling the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality.
