Passion  &  Tradition
as it was in the past

Master craftsmen

Even today, as in the past, following an ancient tradition, we carry out many passages by hand, for the realization of our knits, with a manual skill and a technique that is handed down by master knitters  for generations, and that make the difference in quality. 

Only the best natural yarns

  • The drawing

    Everything starts from a hand drawing, which, through a complicated work, turns into points and technical data to start the weaving

  • The weaving

    In this phase, the yarn is transformed into fully-fashioned knit clothes (front, back, and sleeves) already shaped. In the same time the finishes are also weaved, ie the bottoms, the collars and the cuffs.

  • Linking stitching

    The assembly of the different parts takes place through the "machine linking by hand". With this highly precise operation, the knitters insert each point of the two component parts onto the machine's needles by hand. These are then sewn together with one thread, thus creating the precious "cucitura a catinella".

  • The washing

    We use different types of washing, depending on the type of yarn and fineness, so as to give to  the knit the desired appearance. To give to the knit a soft appareance and a unique smoothness, the fulling is added to carded yarns.

  • Hand finishing

    The embroidery of the buttonholes, the attachment of the buttons and all details are sewn by hand using the same thread that makes up the sweater.

  • Quality control

    The sweater is placed on a luminous mannequin to detect weaving or sewing defects.

  • Hand sewing of labels

    After the quality control has been passed, each label is sewn by hand.

  • Ironing

    The last step is ironing, which consists of an accurate and delicate steaming, and an adjustement by traditional iron.

Our diligence

We imagine that our product will accompany you in the moments you value the most: your leisure time time and travel. For this reason we work with passion and we create our knitwear in the best possible way, paying the utmost care and attention to each single detail, in order to create a quality product that lasts over time.

Curiosity

  • Cotton loom

    The Cotton looms are born around 1816 thanks to William Cotton, even if the first pedal loom for knit weaving, was invented in 1589 in England by the Protestant pastor William Lee.

  • Duke of Windsor

    The pullover became an integral part of menswear thanks to the Duke of Windsor who started to wear it often in public on unofficial occasions.

  • To Knit

    The verb to knit is published for the first time in 1530 in a list of technical words used by the nascent textile industry.

  • The Cashmere

    There are a lot of different qualities of cashmere on the market, the best (which we use),comes from China and Mongolia and it is characterized by very white and long fibers. It can even cost three times more than the poorer qualities such as Iranian or Afghan cashmere.

  • 4 goats

    Only 150g of pure cashmere are obtained from each goat. Therefore to make a medium-weight knit it takes 4 goats.
