Fuganti, haberdashery

Virgolo/Virgl, Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs
from center
The Fuganti sisters opened the shop at the end of the 1950s to supply
the district with the necessary products needed for sewing, knitting,
embroidery and crochet work. Back then, most of us would still
make our own clothing and our grandmothers and mothers could be
seen altering and patching up clothes regularly. The popular haberdashery
store changed ownership twice before three friends turned
their hobby into their daily breadwinner in 2018 – or rather, turned
their hobby into a business which also hired a part-time employee.
Besides selling haberdashery such as buttons, zippers, yarns, etc.
the store also sells sewing machines and provides technical support,
gentle detergents with surfactants of vegetable origin, house and
intimate linen, and a huge selection of knitting wool. Since the
three women love sewing, knitting and crocheting, you know you
can trust their advice. A sustainable hobby? Repairing zippers. Their
passion led them to organise knitting cafes and various sewing and felt workshops in their shop. The pandemic didn’t stop them, as they
organised the same sessions on the Talvera meadows along the river
on Friday afternoons and evenings. Great events which unite different
generations and provide a meeting spot for the people living in
the neighbourhood.
