Our company was born in 1974 as Manifattura Filpa, based on the experience of a young Paolo Padrini, our father. It was developed directly in the field of the production of chenille yarns.
The desire of creating something on his own and the very favourable times to economical and industrial development, help the little manufacture to grow. It becomes a point of reference for the producers of fabrics for the home furniture but also later for the producers of knitted and weaved fabrics of unusual and high quality.
From the end of the ’80s and the beginning of the ’90s the fancy yarns of high quality start to be an important part of our production, always maintaining a very high quality level and above all produced in the area of Prato. During the years, when the company has already achieved a good structure and popularity we, Paolo’s children named Barbara and Andrea, start to support our father managing the company and transforming it in 2012 in the present Filpa 1974.
