Marchio 4sustainability con pay off

Fil-3 started its activity in 1984 in what can be called the “Silicon Valley” of textile: the Prato Industrial District,
where each step of the production process is carried out by a company specialised for that phase. In this context
– where collaboration, flexibility and competitiveness are key factors -, the founders of Fil-3 got the idea to provide quality woollen yarns
with a wide and effective stock service, to speed up the production chain and optimise storage needs.
Creativity, innovation, and collaboration with stylists and designers manage Fil-3 collections to evolve and enrich year by year.
Our offer now includes woollen and worsted yarns, as well as yarns in linen, Tencel™, and other noble fibres
both for weaving and for circular and flat knitting. Fil-3’s researches also led to the realisation of a new, patented machine
for the production of yarns with astonishing effects in a virtually unlimited number of programmable variations. In all of this,
we always paid our attention to behave responsibly concerning the environment. In recent years, we have increased our commitment
to the traceability and control of the whole production process and achieved important quality certifications.
