Founded in the Italian Alps in 1911, Fila originally focused on manufacturing fine fabrics. The company eventually evolved into making fine undergarments, later the high-quality sportswear that attracted the attention of such world famous athletes as Bjorn Borg and Tom Watson. Long associated with tennis, Fila is the brand of choice for many top players today like Marin Cilic, John Isner and Karolina Pliskova.
