Bottega Chilometri Zero was founded in 2006 in Pove del Grappa a small town 5Km from Bassano del Grappa
It has emerged over the years as the epicenter of a “zero-mile” supply chain that seeks to combine globally inspired garments with a controlled local supply chain.
Within a radius of 150 kilometers from its headquarters, Bottega is able to carry out all the production processes necessary for the creation of its collections. From garment design, which takes place in our in-house studio, to the final steps of finishing.
A natural philosophy of life and business.
An intrinsic value in our products in which we want you to find our culture and identity. Why relocate when we have the best in textile manufacturing just a stone’s throw from home? We support local companies and our local area by promoting a short supply chain made up of the highest quality and experienced suppliers and collaborators.
the 7 production steps
Design – 0km – BOTTEGA CHILOMETRI ZERO – POVE DEL GRAPPA (VI)
Research and creativity constitute the first artistic step, which must be combined with strong technical know-how for garment construction
Weaving – 36km TESSPORT S.P.A. / TITANUS S.R.L – THIENE (VI)
Fabrics are made with the best yarns and the most advanced techniques. A Bottega-branded product retains the same qualifying properties after each wash.
Cut – 27km MT SERVICE SRL – SANTA GIUSTINA (PD)
Precision and automation. Mattress fabric welding allows a large number of pieces to be cut simultaneously.
Print – 29Km OPACO SRL – CARTIGLIANO (VI)
It can take place on the cut garment or on the made-up garment depending on the type of effect desired.
Sewing – 100km CONFEZIONI VENETE S.R.L. – VILLANOVA DEL GHEBBO (RO)
It consists of putting the cut together by stitching different types of seams in order to obtain the finished garment.
Finishing/Washing – 30km CLEANTEX/INTEX – SARCEDO (VI)
The “finish” includes all the processes that are used to give the fabric certain sensations to the touch. Special attention is paid to the use of water to avoid any waste.
Ironing – 24km NST2 S.R.L. – CAERANO SAN MARCO (TV)
Final stage of the production process involves the application of labels and tags, ironing, folding and packaging.
do the right thing: sustainable processes and raw materials
Our commitment to the environment: use of sustainable raw materials and production processes. Each tag and logo tells a story, let’s discover it together.
in our collections we use recycled fabrics, they are exceptional materials that come from a unique production process. A mix of new cotton with that obtained from spent garments that are first shredded into scraps and then used to create these unique fabrics that give new life to a material that would otherwise be waste.
eco dyeing / special dyeing
we use the most advanced washing and finishing techniques that allow 35% water savings compared to standard procedures. Cycles are short and occur at low temperatures to ensure less energy use.
We can say it loud, our buttons are unique. They are made from biodegradable materials: UREA, corn bark, potato powder and vegetable additives, we like to call them eco-buttons..
