Nestled in the quaint hillside town of Altena, Germany, the addi factory is still being run by the same family who began hand-crafting needlework tools in 1829. While technology and machinery have advanced greatly over the years, it still requires 25 production steps, and a considerable amount of hands-on fabrication, to create high-quality, German-engineered needles which have set the world standard for circular knitting. In a world where manufacturing is moving to regions with lower production costs and environmental requirements, addi is now the sole full-line European needle producer, proudly crafting their products under strict environmental regulations, while also paying their employees a fair page. Skacel has been working closely with addi since 1988, offering ideas and product innovations to meet the needs and desires of knitters in North America.
