Stoll Italia’s flat knitted developments for home textiles and accessories, which have exhibited at recent shows, clearly show the versatility of flat knitting.

“Stoll Italia has always been a trendsetter and is a pioneer in the field of innovative and unusual knitting patterns on the Italian and the world market. The company's impressive patterns and ideas are regularly presented at the most famous exhibitions in the world such as Pitti Filati and ITMA,” comments German parent company Stoll.

“Stoll Italia offers inspiration to industries outside the usual knitting sector and shows the latest trends in the field of home textiles such as lampshades, carpets, curtains, room dividers, acoustic and decorative panels, pillows, chairs, poufs and many others proposals producible with the Stoll flat knitting technique,” Stoll says.

“The idea behind the development of these patterns was to give Stoll customers, as well as all the visitors at ITMA and Pitti Filati, a new direction for their products. Stoll presented ideas for new product applications to offer interior designers and manufacturers a different point of view. The collection offers diverse knitted home textiles and accessories and accentuates the advantages of the flat-knitting technology e.g. no minimum orders, less yarn and set-up time compared to a weaving loom, waste reduction, product customization and 3D shaping.”

The samples are knitted with the ADF technology that offers a great variety of colour combinations.

Featured ADF machines are: ADF 530-24 ki BW in gauge E 7.2, ADF 530-24 ki BcW in gauge E14 and ADF 830-24 ki W in gauge E18.

“So, let yourself be inspired by the STOLL patterns,” Stoll concludes.

H. Stoll AG & Co. KG, with headquarters in Reutlingen (Baden‐Württemberg, Germany) is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of flat knitting machines. The long‐established company was founded in 1873 and has 1000 employees around the world.
