has conquered the experimental textile track for more
than forty years thanks to the pioneering and bold spirit of Francesco Favini.
Favini pushed beyond the standard of the textile industry during the 1970’s,
and did not let Prato production limit his wool fabrics.
From then on, a lot has changed
but the foundations remain the same. There is a common enthusiasm, the desire
to expand and grow, and the key objective to please the customer.
Flocked, coated and resin
finished fabrics were vanguard fabrics in the 1970’s. Today, because of
diversification and the acquisition of "Lenzi Egisto" brand, high tech productions are now possible at Leathertex.
Today, the mill is well known
because of its superb production of the
highest quality of imitation leather. The imitation leather is produced in many
with unique looks, feel, colors and thickness. The sample room
at the mill has a wide range of models made up of synthetic as well as cotton
fabrics, coated, quilted and embroidered
fabrics, and fabrics bonded with faux furs, films and plastic materials.
All fabrics come to life with the highest attention to
details and are aligned with the demands of the fashion market.
