Filo 61: the partnership with Piedmont Region

The partnership between the yarn and fiber fair and the Piedmont Region is renewed. Thanks to the activities of the region’s Integrated Textile Supply Chain Project (PIF), financed by the P.R. FESR 2021-2027 and implemented through Ceipiemonte – the Regional Agency for Internationalization, a delegation of ten buyers, from Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, and the United Kingdom, will be present at the fair.
Also in the context of the collaboration, in the days following the closing, the delegation of foreign buyers will participate in a study tour in the Biellese territory, which will allow foreign professionals to deepen their knowledge of the production excellence of the Biellese textile district.

Color according to Cittadellarte

The collaboration between Filo 61 and Cittadellarte Fashion B.E.S.T., Fondazione Pistoletto’s operational workshop dedicated to the development of sustainability in the textile sector, is being consolidated.
The entity’s approach, which sees fashion as a social responsibility, aims to promote a new balance between production and consumption. A challenge that reflects the textile industry’s commitment to developing more responsible, sustainable and circular production processes.
As part of the Dialogues of Comparison, Olga Pirazzi, head of Cittadellarte’s sustainable fashion office, together with the Unidee Academy, will lead the talk “By thread and by art: the philosophy of color between circularity and innovation” on Feb. 29.
The meeting at Filo 61 will focus on the importance of color not only in production processes, but also in its broader meaning as a symbolic element that through the centuries has influenced rituals, memory and human emotions.
This year also sees Cittadellarte Fashion B.E.S.T. renew its partnership with Lenzing Group, presenting an exhibition installation made from recycled materials
