ZE-KNIT: the first digitally woven Napapijri proposal. Many years’ studies to research on better and more sustainable production techniques. Nineteen proposals of single colour styles for men and women.
An ergonomic, functional, performing design. An urban style that looks ahead to a newly born future. Dark blue and black are the two colours today available.
INNOVATION IN THE CHAIN OF PRODUCTION.
Digitally achieved colour and cut create flexible forms that can be suited to all physical features and fits of today. Ze-Knit items are digitally woven to decrease environmental costs connected with production: 30% less fabric, water and dye rejects.
Ergonomics – At the body’s bending points a Ze-Knit item is more elastic and provides more ergonomic comfort.
Warmth – To warm up the parts of the body which are more sensitive to cold temperatures the fabric of a Ze-Knit item is integrated with layers of boiled wool.
Anti-odor effect – Panels of anti-odor, breathable fabric are inserted in strategic parts.
Dry and moisture effect – The yarn of the Ze-Knit project undergoes a breathable and a dry effect treatment.
MAKE IT BETTER
Ze-Knit is at once an interpreter and a protagonist of the Make it Better Napapijri philosophy.
Ze-Knit was born to improve the knowhow in the production of clothing. To digitize textile manufactures means to introduce an important new technique in production, a new conception of design and fashion. Make it Better with Ze-Knit involves a lesser and lesser impact of the manufacturing industry on the environment. It involves the creation of functional and ergonomic clothing conceived for those who live the city as a fluid place, a place where the social and urban texture is connected with our daily lives and the lives of other people.
ZE-KNIT: THE FUTURE OF CUSTOMIZATION.
Ze-Knit heralds future trends: more and more customized, totally personalized clothing industrially made through digital techniques in the near future. Fashion and the future involve research, development, innovation, and respect for the environment, a mirror to the personality of each single individual.
