The continuous search for innovation
To best realize your projects
For us making knitwear products is a constant search for technical perfection; a skill acquired and improved over two centuries. It is long story that combines tradition and technology, from 1967 till today.
Maglificio Da-Ni was founded thanks to the talent and creativity of Mrs. Gemma Zanzani. Her proposal, for a market attentive to quality and details, is characterized by knitwear collections made with precious yarns and meticulously cared finishing touches. The first brand produced by the company based in Savignano sul Rubicone is Da-Ni Tricot, a project that stems from a deep knowledge of knitwear and the personal taste of Mrs. Gemma Zanzani.
The first partnerships for the production of knitwear by great designers (Fiorucci, Rena Kraft and many others) date back to this decade and continue more recently with new collaborations with young emerging designers: Sophia Kokosaiaki, Olivier Theyskens, Angelo Figus.
Thanks to the very positive feedback from national market, the company chooses to participate in the first major Italian fairs such as Pitti Donna and Modit Milano, which allow for an important opening on international markets. These are years of great success on the Japanese market and in South-east Asia in general. A brand, Gemma Zanzani , is born. It is characterized by the combination of knitwear and fabric that will then result in a “total look collection project” designed to meet the needs of foreign markets.
Participation in international trade fairs represents the natural evolution for Gemma Zanzani brand which is affirming itself even more in strategic markets such as France, Japan, the United States and Russia. At the end of the 90s, a new line is created: SHE'S SO. It is dedicated to a younger and more trendy clientele.
Thanks to the great feedback from both national and international markets, the company opens its first important showroom in Via Montenapoleone in Milan.
Influenced by the proximity to the footwear district of San Mauro Pascoli, the company begins the study and the experimentation on knitted uppers. A new project is born for the use of the knitting technique to the world of footwear and leather goods with innovative materials and techniques resulting from over 50 years of experience. Therefore, collaborations with national and international brands of the highest level begin. The production structure is expanded with the latest generation machinery all connected to a network, according to the principles of a 4.0 industrial organization.
The expansion projects towards new markets and new collaborations continue with particular attention to the development of eco-sustainable productions.
