All our knitwear is developed and produced together with a family owned knitwear company based in Florence with over 70 years of expertise in Italian-knitted garments. 1,5h hours south at the stunning Lago Trasimeno lies their partner factory, a knitting facility that´s been run by three brothers for over 25 years. This is where the yarn is knitted to panels (the individual parts of the garment) before they are linked together to become whole garments. On our first visit our big cameras and lenses were received with some scepticism by Marcello and Libero, two of the brothers present at the time, but it didn´t take long before we were enjoying short espressos and long conversations by the lake.
