Merz b. Schwanen. Tradition revived.
The knitwear manufacturer Merz b. Schwanen had existed since 1911 in the Swabian Alps, once a traditional textile-producing region. In recent times, the tradition has been revived by the firm of Peter Plotnicki, which is now manufacturing shirts and sports trousers there again – not seldom on the original circular knitting machines dating from the 1920s up through 1960. Their slow operational speeds are what make it possible to obtain the high density, the characteristic structure and substantial feel as well as the excellent shape retention of the knitwear. A small but remarkable detail: the clothing labels with the original Merz b. Schwanen logo and lettering are crafted on an old jacquard-band weaver’s loom.
