Giulia Brunetti was born in Siena, surrounded by the wonderful hills of the Tuscan region. From the very beginning, she displayed an incredible passion for drawing, which eventually brought her to Polimoda, the International Institute for Fashion Design and Marketing in Florence: her journey in the world of fashion started right here. After specialising in knitwear design, Giulia pursued her goal to expand her knowledge and experience in the field. Over the span of fifteen years, she has worked as a knitwear designer, a sampler, and a production manager for many important brands, both in Italy and abroad: Isola Marras- winter fashion, Liviana Conti, Terre Alte, Maglificio Da.Ni – SHESSO, VOLPE D’ORO London, Parronchi Cashmere.
Giulia’s passion for fashion design has been the driving force of her career throughout the years. Her profession is not just a job, but a life experience, a journey towards the discovery of the style truest to her soul. Every creation has its distinct personality, it embodies a concept. Different shapes, soft colours and ethereal shades create unique geometrical landscapes encapsulated in each garment.
Deeply inspired by her love for art and nature, Giulia has taken their elegance and beauty as the ultimate models for all her creations.

Giulia Brunetti Knitwear is an innovative brand fusing its creations with nature:

Our garments are designed with a precise identity in mind: iconic and long-lasting creations, featuring contemporary knitting patterns of high artistic value, coupled with natural pigments and treatments in keeping with the properties of nature”.
The milk yarn is made from casein, the main milk protein, through a recycling process. The excess milk produced by the food and cosmetics industries is collected and then transformed into yarns. As such, there is no intensive farming involved because the source material already exists as an excess product. The advantage is double since there is no need to produce more and at the same time, it is possible to prevent waste. The current processing of the milk protein into fibre has shown great progress in the reduction of pollution. Every kilogram of yarn requires only 2 litres of water, there are no chemical agents involved and no waste. We have transformed the resulting fibres into the ideal fabrics and threads for items of clothing designed with comfort and wellness in mind.
Due to its bio origin, the milk yarn is light and hypo-allergenic, antibacterial and breathable. It guarantees the absorption of body perspiration, leaving the skin fresh and dry thanks to the fabric’s thermal properties. The remaining milk amino acids present in the fibre will care for your skin, by providing it with the necessary nourishment and moisturisation. The fabric itself is particularly pleasant to the eye and incredibly soft to the touch. This kind of textile has a bright look, it feels light, smooth and durable, maintaining its characteristics intact even after numerous washes.
