These fabrics are dedicated to the world of technical-sportswear clothing and outerwear. The unique possibilities of ennobling these patterns make use of the most varied technologies and cutting-edge finishes, which have always been characteristic of Limonta’s DNA.
All the planning, design and production of the jacquard technical files are carried out internally to ensure quality, rapidity in development and absolute exclusivity of each individual project.
