Talamona Pipes were born in 1970 by Cesare Talamona, an artisan in Oltrona, Italy, one of the pipe making hubs of the world.  Focusing on Large Pipes, he developed a brand that became popular.  After many years, Cesare retired at the age of 85 and entrusted the brand and production to Paolo Croci.  Today, a limited production of Talamona pipes are produced in Paolo's Workshop and the quality is maintained as Cesare envisioned in the familiar Italian Style of Design.
