Sina Filati, an Italian leader in high-quality yarns for the hosiery, knitwear and underwear segments, as well as for the seamless, weaving and ribbon industries, will present its expertise at the upcoming FIMAST exhibition for hosiery and sock manufacturing machinery, which takes place in Brescia, Italy, from 30 May to 2 June.

Located in Botticino Sera, a commune in the province of Brescia, one of the country’s hosiery manufacturing centres, the company produces a wide range of products, from natural fibres, such as wool, cotton and cashmere, to synthetic fibres, such as acrylic, nylon, polyester, and various blends, as well as technical yarns with antistatic and antibacterial properties.

The company was founded by Giulio Sina, who has over 30 years of industry experience, and his two sons, Massimiliano and Michela, in 1996. Starting off as a yarn warehouse, the company over the years has progressed to become a leading yarn producer providing customers with an expanding range of yarns available in stock.

“The chaotic change in fashion trends and the resulting need for our customers to keep up with the times encouraged Sina Filati to research, develop and create new and trendy yarns,” says the company.

The family-run business is continuously involved in a technical upgrade of the facilities and research. The current range includes products like polyester and textured polyester yarns offering toughness and resilience, as well as high abrasion resistance, soft and light combed cotton yarns offering heat resistance, as well as acrylic, viscose, polyester and nylon cotton blends, and technical yarns for sportswear and leisure clothing.

Brescia in Italy and its surrounding area has always been one of the most important manufacturing centres for hosiery and sock manufacturing machinery, as well as home to many internationally renowned producers of socks and hosiery. FIMAST, a leading Italian show for hosiery and knitting machinery, will welcome its visitors at the Brixia Forum, Fiera di Brescia, this month.

According to organisers, FIMAST is the most important event in order to get contacts and new solutions for a more economical and creative production in Italy: the heart of European production tradition. The event will present the latest in preparatory machines, yarns and hosiery accessories, circular hosiery knitting machines, linking, sewing and assembling machines, dyeing and finishing machines, packaging machines and accessories machines, accessories, computer equipment, control systems and services.
