Maglificio Pini has reconfirmed its presence at the summer edition of Pitti Filati that has reached its 95th edition, as always in Florence in the evocative location of the Fortezza da Basso, from 25-27 June. “An unmissable occasion, to show the real Made in Italy, made of tradition and product care, which have turned high quality into an indispensable element,” says Martina Pini.

“Maglificio Pini's presence at the Knitclub of Pitti Filati is now a guarantee, as is the excellence that has distinguished the company's mastery and attention to detail over its nearly 50-year history,” Ms Pini adds. “This event, which attracts the attention of many and brings insiders from the world's leading fashion houses to Florence, is a nerve center not only for young people entering the world of fashion and knitwear, but also for all veterans of the industry in constant search of inspiration and novelty from the world of yarns.”

It is precisely here that the second generation of the Pini family, at the helm of the historic Maglificio from Romagna, brings its experience and quality. Guided by the modern view of enhancing the artisan tradition by elevating it, through the use of the most advanced technologies and the continuous search for the best materials on the market, they continue to make garments of the finest quality that meet the highest standards of the fashion market.

It will be at the next Pitti Filati that Maglificio Pini will present a preview of the great restyling work of the archive done in recent months. After almost 50 years since its founding, Maglificio Pini has collected a quantity of garments and stitch trials capable of inspiring the designers of the most important fashion houses a global level, hence the need to reorganize the environments to make it more usable and easier to consult for those visiting the company's headquarters.

At the same time, the network of collaborations with many brands that are based overseas has given the push for the creation of an archive that can also be consulted online, active from next fall, and that will allow a more direct connection for research and quicker requests for information. A great challenge, seen as an opportunity for growth and re-evaluation of one's creativity.
