Filo – a fair of threads

Fashion Weeks are still on, but the textile industry cannot wait, another circle of production has to start.
Trends have been already set, ideas have been already developed, so it is time for the yarn industry to meet their costumares, the textile producers, with their new yarns for Spring Summet 2014.
FILO – International Yarn Exhibition is a fixed appointment since many years now. It gathers in Milan more then 80 yarn producers from Italy and abroad with an increasing number of foreign exhibitors and visitors.


As usually also this 38th edition saw the presence of many sustainable products presented by almost a quarter of the companies, with an increased visibility. Many the posters and banners stating the sustainability either of the processes or of the raw materials with special attention to both the environment and the society.
This is indeed a positive sign hoping that this newly acquired input in communication will pass on to the next fase in the textile chain to reach all levels in it.
Interesting the increased use of Tencel and Modal Edelweiss in different productions and mixes. Many the companies that focused on Organic Cotton and Fair Trade Cotton giving to the buyers a large choice for both knitting and weaving. Also other natural fibres were strongly present, above all Ramiè and Hemp. Recycling is a theme touched only by a few of the exhibitors but with an interesting range of products from R-PET from plastic bottles to Recycled Cotton.
Many the international certifications presented by the producers, worth to be mentioned the “Made in Green” one.

Made in Green is a triple certificate that is unique in Europe and has been created and applied by the Textile Technology Centre, AITEX. The label certifies all manufacturing processes in three aspects: health, environmental protection and the universal human rights of workers and which, in addition, decrees that any company or product bearing the “made in Green” certificate is free of harmful substances and that the goods have been manufactured respecting the environment and the workers human rights.
