Korean Businessmen visit Pitti Filati

In July 2008 our company organized a special tour for businessmen from Korea working in the textile industry.

Our program started in Florence with a special visit to Pitti Filati, the main international event for the knitting yarn industry, a research lab and an observatory on global lifestyle trends.

In Florence we also included a visit to the Capucci Foundation where our participants had the chance to see the unique creations by artist-designer Roberto Capucci.

The tour continued in Prato, great production center of textile manufacturing in Italy. Here our group visited the Textile school and had a meeting on the textile industry in Prato; the meeting was then followed by a visit to the Museum of Fabrics and the exhibition “Superhuman Performance”, dedicated to the latest findings and use of technology and research in the improvement of fabrics and textiles for athletes and sports.

After Tuscany, the group visited Carpi, to know the network of textile and manufacturer factories in the region of Emilia Romagna.

The tour ended in Milan, Italian capital of fashion, with a special visit to Missoni socks factory.

Interlinea took care of the logistics, program planning and coordination.
