Nei Nostri Panni

A concrete social impact project

With the help of different partners, we created a new social impact project, a training program for cenciaioli (the artisans of textyle recycling) and spinners, aimed at people involved in migrant reception centers of the area.

This project is made possible by a donation of 2€ from each purchase on our website. We have always done this with the support of local associations, but this time we decided to go a step forward.

Integration and tradition

Nei Nostri Panni came into being to turn a critical situation into an opportunity.

On the one hand, we have a virtuous reception center in the area, the Fondazione Opera Santa Rita. Here, young people who are in a vulnerable situation and need work training are hosted.

On the other hand, we have the craft of the cenciaiolo, born in Prato more than 100 years ago. This tradition is practised less and less and there is a risk that it is not handed down to future generations. However, the textile sector is understanding the increasing importance of circularity and sustainability and the potential of textile recycling. 

So we decided to combine the preservation of a tradition and create an opportunity for social redemption at the same time.

Generational change

After the success of this project’s first edition, with a focus on the work of cenciaioli, we decided to extend it to other textile sectors.

March 2023 saw the start of the second edition of the project, which now includes 12 paid internships in the carded spinning sector, another textile tradition that’s strongly linked to our area.


As always, we want our social impact projects to be concrete and measurable.

The selected candidates will undergo classroom training and obtain all the certifications needed to work in the companies, such as safety and fire protection.

Afterwards there will be a real internship in the field, during which apprentices will learn to recognize, divide and select old garments and textile waste in order to be recycled.


A jobless migrant who has recently arrived in Italy lives in a tough situation.

People who find themselves in this stalemate are often forced to accept poorly paid jobs without a contract, and in worst cases they become victims of exploitation.

With Nei Nostri Panni project, we want to give them concrete help to start a new life.

The companies and the partners

The first edition of Nei Nostri Panni saw the training of 5 people and ended in December 2022 with the hiring of all the selected profiles. Now 11 new trainees have begun their journey, as cenciaioli and spinners.

This project was born with the direct contribution of the companies, who were able to see the positive impact of the initiative for the community and the sector. 

In fact, all of this is possible thanks to the beneficiaries who host the internships, the project partners and funders, who also contribute financial support.
