ABOUT THE BRAND
Not so much a 'collection' more an evolution of techniques and ideas shared with the legendary artisan knitting workshops of GRP. Located near to Florence this band of workers do their magic on Max Rohr's designs that only happen after much comparative collecting of ancient garments, followed by testing in the field by Mr Rohr himself.
Making fine knitwear on a non-industrial, artisan level involves more processes, however the art of stitch-counting, stitch styles through looping and invisible sewing at the joins is no different.
When you then move this up to the levels achieved at the GRP workshops in the Tuscany countryside, the complexities and hand-crafting skills needed are amplified many fold. With decades of experience the artisans and designers at Maglificio GRP appear to work magic with wool as it is ribbed, curved and folded in one piece, creating seamless elements to their garments that ensure maximum comfort for the wearer.
