Hully Briars, employing 40 workers, was already well established during the 1900’s. Mr Igino Moretti and his wife joined Hully Briars when at its peak, employing about 50 workers. Half the pipe production was. Soon after, Mr Moretti became the principal Hully Briar pipe maker, but the company itself had to close down. Having passed a railroad test, Mr Moretti then had to choose between driving trains and making pipes! Thankfully, the latter was he choice and consequently, Mr Moretti founded the brand “Moretti Recanti” in April 1968. During his first years, Mr Moretti continued to produce pipes for others and started his own line carrying the name Moretti. Today, Marco Biagini, Mr Moretti’s son-in-law, continues the hand-made tradition based on the teachings of the founder. Mr Biagini produces approximately 500 hand-made Moretti pipes per year. For the pipe smoking world traveler, Moretti pipes are still made in the small town of Recanati, in the Marche. In fact, Moretti’s workshop is located across the street from the house where the famous Italian poet, Giacomo Leopardi, was born.
