Raw materials from best quality leftovers
Gaia Segattini Knotwear creations are made by wonderful leftover and recycled yarns: leftover yarns of the best quality and high performance that are already available in the warehouse of the knitwear factory, and textile production waste of premium brands recycled by Italian firms. We use natural and eco-sustainable materials: recycled cotton, Shetland wool, merinos, mohair, alpaca.
We strive to limit our production waste in every aspect of the manufacturing process. We reuse waste and test sheets as packaging for our necklaces or as pillow cases. What we are not able to reuse is given to a company that deals with textile recycling, this is the same company which we collaborate with for the recovery of yarns. Shipping: our whole package is made of paper (box, adhesive tape, envelope for shipping labels) and our envelopes in corn and compostable materials. All our clothes are made in the Marche by a young, passionate, professional and involved team and by small, sometimes one-person only, laboratories scattered among the hills of our region, Le Marche.
Our creative process is virtuous and innovative
By using yarns that exist already we carry out a process that is inverse compared to the industrial one: instead of starting from the sketch, we start from the raw material to invent models and styles. Therefore the clothes are designed on the basis of the available materials selected and the analysis of technology, without any production waste nor pollution.
