Rinaldo pipes are made in Pesaro, Italy by two brothers, Elio and Guido Rinaldo. Elio began making pipes when he was only fifteen, and his younger brother, worked with precious metals for jewelry, began making pipes when he was sixteen. These two gentlemen started working together in 1987 when they started Rinaldo pipes and work in perfect harmony in their shop. Because of his jewelry background, Guido is responsible for making all of their silver bands and accents on-site. They use acrylic stems and finish their pipes either smooth, sandblasted, or rusticated. Working together, the brothers produce around 1,500 pipes annually.
