20 — Limonta
Costa Masnaga, Lombardiahttp://www.limonta.com
A symbol of the evolution and constant updating of the textile sector, Limonta was established and developed in Costa Masnaga in the Lecco area, in one of the oldest European textile tradition zones, between Lake Como and Milan. The company, which started with the production of tapestries and jacquard fabrics, in the course of time specialised in the integration of chemistry and textiles to transfer into the sectors of fashion and furniture the results of this research geared to product innovation and diversification. Among Limonta’s iconic products is Dolmias, a nylon technical fabric with a particular silky effect, a polished look and a compact touch. Founded on this type of industrial invention is the firm’s global success, making it a landmark name in the world of technical fashion textiles, with an unmatched authority in the sphere of fashion design. Today Limonta’s new frontier concerns textile sustainability both through the use of regenerated nylon and hands-on research in the field of biopolymers and bio-based technical yarns.
