I don’t think I’ve ever seen more beautifully-crafted, custom performance skis, bindings, poles and travel bags than those from Foil of Italy.
Foil Ski Equipment
Originally founded by Alessandro Marchi in Northeast Italy between Trieste and the Austrian Alps, he joined with former Austrian ski team member Andreas Pichler to form Foil International. Together, they searched for the perfect blend of materials, which, when hand-sculpted, would yield an elegance and performance never before experienced.
The company offers four beautiful models of custom skis, each available in two styles; the “Classico” an all-mountain ski and the “Riserva” a slalom ski. In addition to their gorgeous looks, the Riserva ski was given peak ratings in all areas at the WorldSkitest and called “A ski that really shows no weaknesses and that makes skiing to a real pleasure. An absolute top performance of the newcomer!”
Foil designs and manufacturers all its skis and accessories in Italy with one objective: to combine beauty, performance and joy in a snow ski. They intentionally limit their production to a maximum of 300 pairs a year in order to both maintain quality and ensure the highest standard of direct communication with its customers.

THE TRAVEL BAG
The Foil travel bag is one-of-a-kind and made from the finest, pure aniline, top grain leather. Each bag comes with a certification from the “Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana” (Vegetable-tanned leather of Tuscany) which guarantees the authenticity, natural tanning method and premium quality of the leather.
And for the special Ora Nero 14k gold-plated edition:
Engraved medallions with the client’s initials or logo are inset into each pair of skis and initials are tastefully added to the vintage lock, classic leather covered flask and travel bag as well.
In addition to buying their products individually, they also offer “The full Foil Package” which includes Skis, Poles, Binding and the bespoke leather bag.
You won’t find Foil products at any traditional retailers. They work in association with heralded brand ambassadors and ambassador properties across the globe.
