Our History

100% Made in Italy

Over a century of dedication and passion spent in the italian textile Industry

In 1897 Guido Lucchesi produced ed exported fabrics in three continents.
The following generations kept the textiles tradition alive.
In 1962 intuitition and research led towards knitting yarn as a new frontier thus Industria Italiana Filati Spa was etabilished.
It produces for the most famous Italian and international brands and groups.
In 1997 the Lucchesi family celebrated their first centenary and the prosecution of the firm.
Today, with its two brands, Industria e Accademia, the company produces always innovative yarns with precious blends and fancy effects for middle and high-quality knitwear.
Knitting industrial yarn is produced in Italy, in the district of Prato.
In March 2016 we produce the first collection of yarns for weaving and jersey called TEX. In the best tradition of the Italian textile industry, research, innovation and technology, together with our many years of experience give life to a collection of yarns suitable for woolen mills that make classic and fancy fabrics.

Sustain the Planet

Together with other spinners from Prato we adopt the path 4sustainability, towards sustainability. We want to approach ethics in business by adopting a protocol and card values for sustainability.
Traceability of the production chain - Compliance with international standards on human rights - Respect and dignity of life of every living thing - Environment protection.
Here our ethical code


Faithful to the commitment to protect and respect the environment and the health of workers and consumers, Industria Italiana Filati Spa has decided to subscribe , starting from February 2016, the Commitment Detox, challenge launched by Greenpeace, which aims to eliminate tossic substances from the textile production chain.
We share this commitment with a group of companies in the textile district of Prato, under the coordination of Confindustria Toscana Nort; in August 2016 it was created the C.I.D.- Italian Detox Improvement Consortium
