Would you like to see circular fashion up close?
We have created some guided tours in collaboration with Cap Viaggi Tour Operator , to discover the companies that deal with textile recycling in Prato.
By participating you will be able to see the cenciaioli up close and find out how scraps and waste can be transformed into new textile resources.
What you will discover
We asked various companies to open their doors, to offer Textile Tours participants a 360-degree look at the recycling of textile fibers.
The tour includes these stops:
Nuovi Fratelli Boretti company, where you will be able to see the art of cenciaioli up close.
Filatura Filupucci, here you will see how old garments are transformed into a new yarn.
Textile Museum of Prato, to dive into the history of the textile district.
Rifò, where you can see the recycled garments. Here you will also have access to an exclusive discount to buy directly in-store.
The total cost of the ticket is 39 € and also includes a visit to the Textile Museum.
Next scheduled dates
The meeting point will be at Prato Central Station. From here the Textile Tours bus will take participants in a guided tour from 10 am to 18 pm, to discover the companies in the district where textile regeneration takes place. There is a free lunch break from 1pm to 2pm.
Here's the next dates of Textile Tours 2023:
