a unique service
The Bisentino textile project took shape many years ago, with the establishment of two spinning mills able to meet all the needs of our customers. Over time it was decided to keep only one of the two spinning mills, the one that guaranteed the widest range of products possible, the Filatura di Spicciano , capable of carding and spinning a wide range of raw materials into counts that range from 3000Nm to 18000Nm.
in the following times we decided to invest in the production of finished garments such as scarves, stoles and blankets, simple garments where the raw material plays a fundamental role. The birth of ElleBi Italia marks a very important moment for the group idea: 3 companies to offer a service focused on quality, service and traceability.
Since the early 70s, spinning also played a role of primary importance for the control and reuse of textile waste, allowing us to reuse all the leftovers of weaving in addition to the usual “phrases” advanced in spinning. The optimization of waste has always been at the center of attention and today represents one of the fundamental strategic assets of our production companies.
In 2020 the Manifattura BiG was born, the first horizontal aggregation project implemented in the textile district between fabric producers, the result of the union of ElleBi Italia , which later became a division of Lanificio Bisentino and Gibiwear, a historic company for the production of accessories in the district.
