Yarn manufacturing:

Formerly known as "Roccatura Silvana di Uboldi Silvana" (sole proprietorship), Il Filo di Silvana was originally founded in 1988. Up to 2001, the company operated as a third party contractor foryarn unwinding and cone-winding processes. During this long period, the company was able to acquirein-depth knowledge on dyed yarns for the hosiery and weaving industry.

The concurrence of market changes and a decrease in contract work led us to take a big step forward. In September 2001, the company shifted towards the cotton sales industry, thus succeedingin gaining a good market share and officially starting a new yarn sales process, along with some other important company changes.

In 2006, “Il Filo di Silvana Srl” was officially established to deal with both cotton sales and cone winding. Over the years, the company entered into important agreements with textile industries in Prato, Piedmont, Lombardy, Veneto and Emilia-Romagna.
