The Manufacturing

Nella realizzazione delle nostre maglie, seguendo una tradizione antica, ancora oggi, come una volta, eseguiamo molte lavorazioni a mano, con una manualità e una tecnica che i mastri magliai si tramandano da generazioni, e che fanno la differenza nella qualità.

This is how a Bottegiani sweater is crafted


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.

The Linking stitching

L'assemblaggio delle diverse parti avviene attraverso le macchine da rimaglio. Con questa operazione che necessita di una grande precisione manuale, le magliaie infilano ogni punto delle due parti componenti sugli aghi della macchina, che poi vengono cuciti insieme con 1 solo filo, creando così la preziosa 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.

The Quality control

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

The Hand sewing of labels

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

The Ironing

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