Rinaldo pipes are made in Pesaro, Italy by brothers Elio and Guido Rinaldo. Elio began making pipes when he was only fifteen, and his younger brother who worked with precious metals for jewelry, began making pipes when he was sixteen. They eventually became Rinaldo Pipes in 1987. 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.
