BEHIND THE SCENES
Knitwear is at the heart of every Marc Cain collection. Extraordinary patterns, innovative knitting methods and outstanding finishes show how much expertise and craftsmanship go into every item. Production on a larger scale only became possible with the introduction of electronically controlled knitting machines in the 1970s. A lot has happened since then.
Today, the company headquarters has a range of hightech machinery comprising 115 highly specialised knitting machines. 112 flat knitting and three circular knitting machines produce around 390,000 knitwear items per year, using 290,000 kilograms of yarn in the process. That’s enough to go around the world 65 times!
