Lineapiù Italia was founded in 1975 at Capalle in the Province of Florence. Alessandro Bastagli has been at the helm since 2010. Today, thanks to the creative content and quality of its collections, the company is the recognized world leader in yarns for the knitwear industry, and its position is guaranteed by dedication to research and innovation. Lineapiù has made significant contributions to revolutionizing the history of knitwear starting with the first 100% viscose yarn, followed by carbon-containing Relax that shields against electromagnetic waves and other yarns all the way to filo “d’aria”, a hollow, light and fluffy yarn that protects the wearer against abrupt temperature changes. The most recent innovations include Lumen, the light-sensitive yarn and Paper Knit made of paper. Lineapiù embodies Italian excellence in its history, working methods, creative and manufacturing skills that have changed knitwear across the world. The integrated, entirely in-house system produces yarns that are 100% Made in Italy. Each season Lineapiù presents three different collections: Lineapiù, fantasy and classic yarns with high fashion content; Filclass, for youthful looks; and Lineapiù Knit Art the group of yarns for hand knitting.
