Paolo Monfermoso, general manager of Filo, has said: “The very positive outcome of the 46th edition of Filo stands out not just from our data, but also from our exhibitors’ reports about the number and attitude of the buyers they met during the exhibition”.
Commenting the 46th edition of Filo, the general manager Paolo Monfermoso referred to the general satisfaction expressed by exhibitors about the exhibition results. Here are the comments by some of the exhibitors, gathered at the end of the second day of exhibition.
The 46th edition of Filo was officially inaugurated trough the conference ‘Il Filo del Design’, organised by Filo in partnership with ITA-Agency and Sistema Moda Italia. The core of the debate was about strategies for companies’ development and internationalisation, starting from innovation and enhancement of Made in Italy, focusing also on the re-discover of the archives of textile companies. During his speech, Carlo Piacenza, president of Unione Industriale Biellese, stated “Textile industry is complicated, with a long production process, but its different sectors are demonstrating to be able to communicate and work as a team. On the other hand, the intact supply chain is a fundamental competitive advantage and allows the Italian textile-apparel industry to continue inventing and innovating”.
With a wide range of metric counts and twists, the fancy yarns included in the Botto Poala Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia collection are suitable for three-dimensional effects and gather and rough surfaces (cordonnets, mouliné three ply, stretch, frisé, mousse and many others).
