Punto Fa, S.L., trading as Mango, is a Spanish clothing design and manufacturing company, founded in Barcelona, Spain by brothers Isak Andic and Nahman Andic.[1]

History[edit]

Mango was founded by Sephardic Jewish immigrants from Turkey, Isak Andic and his brother Nahman Andic, in 1984.[2]

Mango has women's, men's and kids' collections.[3] The company launched its teen line, Mango Teen, via a pop-up shop featuring a TikTok stage for customers in Barcelona at Rambla de Cataunya, 76, in September 2020. The line is also available on Mango's official website. [4]

Mango's first website was created in 1995 and in the year 2000, it opened its first online store. H. E. by Mango is a men's line created in 2008,[5] and renamed Mango Man in 2014.[6] Football legend Zinedine Zidane has become the new face of the Mango Man campaign.[7]

Mango has over 16,000 employees, 1,850 of whom work at the Hangar Design Centre and at its headquarters in Palau Solità i Plegamans, Barcelona.[8] Mango's biggest market is Spain but Istanbul, Turkey, has the largest number of Mango stores.[9]

From Fall 2011, Kate Moss was Mango's muse. She first appeared in a video featuring Terry Richardson who shot the whole campaign and directed the commercial.[10] Moss was replaced by Australian model Miranda Kerr.[11]

In April 2011, Letizia, Princess of Asturias visited company headquarters wearing a Mango outfit.[12]

In 2015 Mango had revenue of 2.327 billion euros with earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization of 170 million euros.[13]

In early 2021, Mango launched a new Mediterranean-inspired store concept to meet higher sustainable standards. [14]

Controversies[edit]

Bangladesh building collapse[edit]

On 24 April 2013, the eight-story Rana Plaza commercial building collapsed in Savar, a sub-district near Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. At least 1,127 people died and over 2,438 were injured.[15] The factory housed a number of separate garment factories employing around 5,000 people, several shops, and a bank[16] and manufactured apparel for brands including the Benetton Group, Joe Fresh,[17] The Children's Place, Primark, Monsoon, and DressBarn.[18][19] Of the 29 brands identified as having sourced products from the Rana Plaza factories, only 9 attended meetings held in November 2013 to agree a proposal on compensation to the victims. Several companies refused to sign including Walmart, Carrefour, Bonmarché,[citation needed] Mango, Auchan and Kik. The agreement was signed by Primark, Loblaw, Bonmarche[citation needed] and El Corte Ingles.[20]

Velvetine handbag lawsuit[edit]

In 2010, the French division of Mango was sued by Anne-Cécile Couétil, creator of the brand Velvetine, who argued that Mango copied two models of her handbags. Despite an attempt of protection via the INPI and similarities between her products and Mango's, the creator lost the lawsuit. She was ordered to pay €6,000 to Mango.[21][22][23][24] On her blog, Couétil claimed she wanted to lodge an appeal.[25] Several bloggers were surprised by the judicial decision saying it was unfair.[26][27] The brand Mango reacted on Facebook via its official fan page and answered also on the creator's blog.[25]
