Our history

An idea born from the passion for quality and the Italian artisan tradition 

How the idea was born

After having worked for years in the luxury knitwear sector, we realized that the passages of the traditional distribution chain significantly increase prices, making quality accessible to a few. This is where our idea was born, to create an uncompromising high quality Italian product at an affordable price.

Where we craft them

We leave from Milan to arrive in the heart of Umbria. Umbria has always been the most important Italian district for excellent knitwear, some of the most prestigious Italian knitwear brands are born here. The master knitters have handed down this art from father to son for generations, and the passion for this ancient craft can be felt in every corner; in the bars, in the square, it is easy to come across talks about yarns and knitting. Our collaboration begins right here, together with a family of master craftsmen, to transmit their tradition and passion directly to you. 


The product we offer is what ultimately represents us, identifies us and distinguishes us. With this philosophy we create our collection, offering a style, which therefore recalls the Milanese taste and the Umbrian tradition at the same time, inspired by the Italian charm of the Dolce Vita, and intended for the man who seeks a timeless style, far from the fast fashion, giving value to quality.

The Meaning of Bottegiani

Bottegiani is not just a name, but it is the union of two words that best represent our world: workshop (bottega) and artisans (artigiani). We are not a brand, but we are artisans who, in their workshop, create with their own hands every day, as they did in the past, trying to convey all the passion and tradition of their know-how through care, sometimes almost obsessive, for details, all finished by hand with the aim of creating something of value and special that lasts over time.
