THE KNITTING FACTORY

GIANLUCA MANTOVANI 
CRISTIAN IMPEX, CALAFAT, ROMANIA

 

Our knitting factory, Cristian Impex, has been in business since 1997. They’re a partner company of Fil.Life, where the Swedish wool becomes yarn, and the Filippa K team has spent time at both facilities. The managing director Gianluca told us about this final step in the process, and what makes the Swedish wool so unique.

    “Knitting is the process that sends the yarn through the electronic flat knit machine to be transformed into fully fashioned, shaped knitted pieces. These are then assembled during the linking process, creating the complete knitwear garment.”

      “The Swedish wool is very resistant. It has a slightly rougher hand-feel compared to other qualities we work with, but this makes it very high performing.”
