Take part in the 2-day learning expedition to discover the Tuscany textile ecosystem.

Prato is one of the most important textile manufacturing area at national and European level, with a strong history in recycling wool. The textile and clothing sector represent the most relevant reality in terms of number of companies in the sector (around 7.000), of people employed (around 44.000) and economic turnover. The industrial district present an active environment where growing interdependence among companies, and different actors drive to an innovative approach for the fashion system.

To have a wide and heterogeneous vision on the T&C reality of Prato, the 2-day Learning Expedition organized by Next Technology Tecnotessile, will bring you to discover the production of traditional T&C companies as well as more innovative companies engaged in textile recycling and in the technical textile production.
