Maglieria Gemma it is located in Castano Primo (Mi), in the heart of the Ticino Natural Park, only 5 Km away from the International Airport of Milan Malpensa; it develops on about 2000 m² and has a staff of 65 people who are in charge of manufacturing and selling high-quality (fully fashion) outer knitwear. The machineries that we use are not the result of a standard fabrication, but they are manufactured after specific requests: cotton frames fineness 45 gg., 33 gg., 30 ggs. and electronic flat knitting machines fineness 18 and linking machines fineness 28-30.
The weaving, the clothing manufacture, the trimming, the washing, the ironing and the packaging are all executed in our premises, thus ensuring a direct control on every single manufacturing phase and also ensuring the best of quality. Samples and/or prototypes are also fully produced by us upon the customer's request and obviously all the models that we create can be previewed at our premises.
The Company was founded in 1958 by Mino Boscarini in collaboration with his daughter Maria Rosa and his sons, Ettore, Ugo and Francesco; they transformed two stocking knitting machines into knitting machines, one with a 21 gg. fineness and the other one with a 45 gg. fineness, the latter being still the thinnest frame in the world ever. In spite of all the difficulties met during the years after, the Company has always succeeded in improving its production and its research for new products, in collaboration with the best Italian spinning Companies and with the most important national and international fashion houses.
Maglieria Gemma started from a handicraft manufacture and an on-commission working procedure; over the years, thanks to the market development and to a change in the corporate policy, it has been developing and specializing more and more, becoming a small industry and availing itself of the collaboration of internally-trained and highly specialized personnel.
Today, just as 50 years ago, most of the workings are performed manually, thus ensuring a high-quality product which is considered one of the best on the world market. The Company is presently enjoying the collaboration of the Boscarini family's third generation, who is now contributing crucially with its innovatory and up-to-date ideas, always following the older traditions.
