The story begins in 1982, when founder Katsiavos Alexandros worked as a textile engineer – a conservator at one of the largest factories of the time, deciding to start his first textile business.
In the decades that followed, the company grew and evolved, always holding a high position in Greek textile production.
The textile passion, passed on to both of his children. With our father’s gift of equipment and knowledge and a shared vision of creating and producing innovative products, we continue the business.
Today, the European Knitting Company has grown due to the company’s insistence on quality, modern design and innovation. European Knitting Company is a commercial textile hub and continues its successful course despite adverse conditions in the textile industry and in Greece in general.
