TF Industria e Comï¿½rcio de Modas Ltda
Colcci is a Brazilian company, designing and producing clothes for women and men.
It was founded in Brusque (SC) in 1986 and underwent a major redesign in 1997. Parts of the brand, which were basic, won a fashion concept and the shops were modified.
In 2000 Colcci was sold to the AMC Tï¿½xtil Group, who also owns the brand Sommer. After AMC Tï¿½xtil took over the direction, they invested in changes that had occurred for over four years. And so in 2004, Colcci made its first appearance at the Rio Fashion Week, with Gisele Bï¿½ndchen as their main model on the runway. Since then Gisele Bï¿½ndchen continues as their model till today.
In March 2008, AMC Tï¿½xtil Group was purchased by the TF Industria e Comï¿½rcio de Modas Ltda, owner of the well-known brands Forum, Forum Tufi Duek, Tufi Duek and Triton.
Colcci is dedicated to a young audience and produced mainly jeans and knitwear.
