THE SLOW FACTORY
InterviewS to Giovanni Bonotto.
Bonotto, time for the 0 km factory
He comes from the same area that has produced innovative entrepreneurs like Rosso and Dainese. He produces fabrics for the leading luxury designer labels, from Van Noten to Saint Laurent but using looms and machinery from the Nineteen-Fifties. He has even revived old professional figures that disappeared decades ago.
