Cividini Releases Sustainable Knitwear Collection

MILAN — Cividini has launched the new “Fatto a mano” — or “Handmade,” in English — sustainable collection.
The knitwear line is handmade in natural fibers by local artisans while the coloration process doesn’t involve toxic, azo dyes. Additional prints and embellishments on the knitwear are also hand-painted by artists with natural colors.
“This kind of approach has been in our collections since the very beginning, but now we’re communicating it in a louder way,” said Piero Cividini, who along with his wife, Miriam, founded the label in the Eighties and designs the brand’s collections.
The lineup, focusing on “seasonal basic items and simple shapes,” includes a gray cashmere style with no stitching, an acid green cotton pullover and a light blue cotton knit with wide-neck and raglan sleeves. Due to the handmade procedure, “the line has a higher positioning compared to our regular knitwear offering, retailing at an average 30 percent higher price,” Cividini said. In particular, prices for the “Fatto a mano” line, which will be distributed in Cividini stores and corners alongside with the main offering, range from 385 euros to 660 euros.
In general, Cividini projects to end 2018 with sales accounting for 12 million euros, in line with the previous year.
