At the end of the second day of Filo we collected the comments of the exhibitors, some in the form of a video interview. Everyone expressed satisfaction with the work done at the 54th edition of Filo. We publish here the second part of the interviews carried out at the fair, the third part will be reported in the next issue of FiloNewsLetter. As for the first part, you can read it on Filo’s website.
Anna Garavaglia from Annitex: “We are strongly satisfied; buyers’ visits were continuous along the two days of fair. We are happy with the new location: personally, I really liked the natural light distinguishing the previous location, but here at MiCo there are areas which result to be perfect for exhibiting companies. Our company proposes cotton yarns and natural fibres, dyed and fancy ones, single, twisted, compacted, gassed, mercerized and crêpe ones for knitting weaving and orthogonal weaving. The whole production is carried out in Italy and it is absolutely traceable.”
Francesco Bianchetti from I Cotoni di Albini: “Despite the premises resulting from a difficult moment, I think that this Filo edition has been very positive, not just in relation to the number of buyers who visited our booth, but for their quality. We have appreciated the new location, which is easier to reach and it allows a functional arrangement of booths. As far as our supply is concerned, the new Biofusion yarn has been particularly appreciated: it comes from a long activity of research and selection of the best materials; it is GOTS certified and scientifically 100% traceable.”
Francesco Ferraris from Finissaggio e Tintoria Ferraris: “We are very happy to have participated in the 54th edition of Filo, which marks the re-start of the sector. The presence of visitors went beyond expectations and the idea of Filo to introduce the Area “Services and Accessories for the companies” was great: it means broadening the horizons and this is positive for the whole industry. Great organisation, as usual.”
Emanuele Giletti from Giletti spa: “This is our first time at Filo, but our opinion about the fair is extremely positive. We have received visits from usual clients, but we also have had new contacts, very concrete ones. We also find that the location chosen by Filo was excellent, very functional and equipped with adequate services. Among the products which drew attention, I want to mention our regenerated cotton to be matched with Lurex or lamè yarns.”
Elena Zaffalon from R di S: “Our company is a family firm, which today is run by the third generation. This is our first time at Filo and the satisfaction for these two days at Filo has gone beyond all expectations. Our company is dedicated to those treatments prior to spinning; therefore, our customers are spinners and weavers. For this reason, we have prepared a video explaining our production process, to make clients understanding the quality that we are able to ensure in our production’s pipeline, which start from worsted tops to the cone ready for weaving.”
