The comments of the exhibitors at the end of the 52nd edition of Filo confirm the satisfaction for the work done during the two day of the exhibition.
The 52nd edition of Filo hosted the workshop “Sustainability: a virtuous process”, organised by Filo in late afternoon on the first day of fair, at the explicit request of the exhibitors, which in fact had the opportunity to take part in great numbers.
The first results of FiloFlow have been presented during the first day of the 52nd edition of Filo.
The 52nd edition of Filo, the international yarns and fibres exhibition, closed with positive results. The yarns and fibers Exhibition took place on 25-26 September 2019 at Palazzo delle Stelline in Milan.
“Smart yarn: sustainable solutions for tomorrow’s fashion” is a dialogue among Andreas Roerich, Director Product Development & Innovation Wolford and Giusy Bettoni, C.L.A.S.S. Ceo and Founder.

– Carlo Piacenza, President of the Unione Industriale Biellese
– Paolo Monfermoso, general manager of Filo

FiloFlow is the sustainability project of Filo which have been launched during last spring. It is a long-term project aimed to track the textile supply chain; it intends to highlight and enhance sustainable production processes and products made by Filo’s exhibitors. Its starting point is the awareness that sustainability makes sense only if it implicates the whole textile supply chain. FiloFlow reflects the concrete steps carried out by the companies to reach sustainable production systems and products, both in relation to the environmental scope and to the social and ethic one. The exhibiting companies participate in FiloFlow on a voluntary and self-certificated basis.
