has been a byword for unusual
pullovers and knitted jackets
made from high quality materials
with a care for resources,implemented
with craftsmanship together
with German engineering skills.
The technology to knit a completely seamless pullover was developed at the end of the 20th century (1997-1999).
Primarily, to make it possible to continue producing in high wage countries such as Italy, Japan, or Germany. Since the programming can only be mastered by highly-trained specialists and the fact that in general production of knitted garments has been relocated to low-wage countries, the technology has not spread very far.
The seamless technology is for small individual production runs. A knitting machine, also produced in Germany, which costs about € 120,000 when new, produces a pullover in 60-90 minutes. This means a daily production of 14 pieces per machine.
