Lycra hosts legwear innovation day for Italian firms

Lycra Legwear Innovation Day took place in the Castel Goffredo District, the Italian hosiery capital, last month, attracting 160 representatives from leading Italian hosiery manufacturers and brands.

The Lycra brand collaborated with its Italian distributor Fulgar, an international leader in manufacturing and distributing manmade fibres, and an authority on the Italian legwear industry, to organise the fourth instalment of this event.

Exclusive presentation

While the latest legwear trends and Lycra fibre innovations were presented in March to a larger international trade audience at Lycra Fiber Moves IV, Innovation Day presented them exclusively to Italian hosiery knitters, yarn coverers, distributors, and hosiery brands.
