Founded in 1946, Cressi made its mark in the aquatic world as a diving company. Family owned and operated as an Italian brand, Cressi was the first company to produce diving items like the diving mask with dedicated nose pocket. Their innovative and superior development in the diving world spans across multiple sports including diving, spear fishing, snorkeling and swimming.
In 2005, Cressi dove into the world of swimming and established a separate brand specifically for swimming products. The first swimming goggle produced by Cressi was the Nuoto Goggle in 1950. During that time, European swimming champions used Cressi products like goggles and swim fins. Since then, Cressi has expanded their swimming product line to feature swim masks, goggles, fins, caps, swim suits and swimming accessories.
To this day, Cressi still manufactures the majority of products in Genova, Italy, allowing the company to achieve a high level of quality control for their customers. Cressi's mission is clear. Their goal is to create the highest quality products and high hopes that everyone who uses a Cressi product will enjoy his or her water sports experience.
