Wool, the oldest and most natural fibre in the world, versatile and suitable even for the most advanced and creative applications. Tollegno 1900 knows it well and continues to explore increasingly avant-garde lands in the world of fashion and accessories. An example? The creation of the innovative and amazing ShoeSocks, a concept created by Sandonini, a leading company in the textile machinery sector from Brescia.
It is an innovative 3D footwear, a two-in-one shoe-sock: a single shoe upper integrated with the sole with no seams, totally customizable with knit stitches, colours, styles, and different models. A footwear that has been in Italian stores just for a few months and that is destined to become a “must-have” in the coming seasons.
An ideal testing ground for Harmony 4.0 (in the 2/30 version), the innovative yarn by Tollegno 1900, which offers the maximum in terms of resistance, performance, and water-repellent capacity. The idea of testing Harmony 4.0 on the ShoeSocks collection was born from the encounter between the creativity of Sandonini and the continuous research of Tollegno 1900.
“We decided to test the Harmony 4.0 yarn because it is a very high-performance wool,” explains Fiorenzo Sandonini, owner of the company, “created by a leader in its field as we are in the world of textile machines, and because Tollegno 1900 is a company constantly striving for innovation as we are, with a great desire to experiment with new paths.”
“We are proud to have been chosen for this very innovative project,” comments Lincoln Germanetti, CEO of Tollegno 1900, “because it allows us to show the strengths of our yarn in an unusual trendy product for wool, ideal in a market that is in constant evolution. The collaboration with Sandonini is then a concrete example of our way of working: through collaborations with interesting partners where the creation and development of new items goes hand in hand with the search for new uses for our yarns.”
The result of the partnership is on display at the Filo stand, the Milan fair scheduled for 26 and 27 September.
