Pitti Immagine Filati

Pitti Immagine Filati

We ended June by landing in the captivating city of Florence, Italy, to attend Pitti Immagine Filati. This year’s theme, Lemon, brought a burst of refreshing positivity, infusing the event with a vibrant energy that was palpable throughout!



Despite the scheduling change due to the start of the Tour de France in Florence, the show was well-attended over the three days. It had a strong, positive atmosphere and saw a significant increase in overseas buyers.



The show was bursting with vibrancy and captivating designs, showcasing strong trends, diverse colour palettes, tactile qualities, and innovative styles. In line with this year’s lemon theme, it was clear that colour and energy had been infused into the yarn and knitwear collections.



For most of the show, the stands were bustling with interest, which is encouraging in the current global economic climate. The fancy yarn manufacturers were the busiest, with their stands consistently crowded with appointments. Everyone anticipated substantial orders to follow.



Regarding the fibres, Alpaca, Wool, and Mohair were prominently featured, signalling a promising market outlook for us over the next 18 months. We anticipate these strong representations will bolster our position and opportunities in the industry.



It was a fantastic opportunity to reconnect with existing customers and foster new relationships.



All in all, it was a great visit, and we are looking forward to the next Pitti Immagine Filati!
