The thread that joins experience, innovation, and quality.
The thread connecting Prato to the rest of the world goes back to 1964, year in which the Manufacture Igea was established. Dynamism, productive potential, and a structure developed on a 15 thousands m2 covered area make it today one of the most important and known industries for knitwear-yarn.
In 1988, “Filigea”, a warehouse in Carpi for fast delivery yarn, and the “Azimut” line, that is high-quality classic yarns in pure merino wool, were born. In the same period, a laboratory for qualitative analysis and control, among the first ones in Italy, was set in Igea’s head office.
In the ‘90s, Igea became progressively more focused towards the increasing of its own productive capacity, with a constant improvement of the products quality and an increasingly closer relationship to the fashion world.
Invited to Pitti Filati since its first edition, Igea is also present in the most prestigious sectorial fairs: from Spinexpo in New York, to the ones in Tokyo and Beijing.
Besides being among the leaders of the National market, today Igea includes clients on all the main foreign markets.
