There are many new initiatives by Filo at the 56th edition (September 29 and 30 at MiCo-Milano). One of the most relevant is “Un Filo per la maglia”. It is a new area – born from an idea by Gianni Bologna, creativity and style manager of Filo – dedicated exclusively to knitting.
Gianni Bologna himself explains the reasons why Filo dedicates the new area entirely to knitting: “Yarns for knitting have always been present in the collections of Filo exhibiting companies. However, with the support of a fashion industry that has been recording an increase of garments made in circular and flat knits, from now on they will be located in an area of Filo appropriate to the relevance of the sector”.
Paolo Monfermoso, general manager of Filo, states: “Knitting is a sector that has always been present in our fair, to which now Filo has wanted to give due importance. Above all, the initiative has been warmly welcomed by the exhibiting companies”.
Here is the complete list of companies taking part in “Un Filo per la maglia”: Azeta Filati, Cotonificio Olcese Ferrari, Elasten, Filatura Alma, Fil 3, Filmar, Filpa 1974, Garanti, Ghezzi, Ilaria Manifatture, Linificio e Canapificio Nazionale, Linsieme, Monticolor, Moririn, Ongetta, Poker, Spin Aker, Texpro, Utt, Vimar 1991, Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia.
