Fabrica-the Italian textile machinery exhibition launched in Vietnam


Celebrating the rich history and evolution of the Italian textile manufacturing industry, the ‘Fabrica-the Italian Textile and Innovation’ exhibition was launched at the HCM City Musuem in Vietnam yesterday.

Being held from June 13-16, the event is hosted by the Consulate General of Italy in HCM City, in collaboration with Harper’s Bazaar Vietnam.

A part of the 2024 Aquafina Viet Nam International Fashion Week, the exhibition marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Consulate General, and is part of the 2024 Aquafina Việt Nam International Fashion Week in the city

Inaugurating the exhibition on June 13, Enrico Padula, Consul General-Italy said, “theFabrica exhibition speaks not only of Italian textiles, but also of a history and a vision of the future.

Promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and conceived by CorradoAnselmi and CMS Cultura, the exhibition gives visitors an opportunity to experience the history, technique and Italian vision of the textile industry.”

Comprising a series of panels set up by a network of 20 companies in the sector, the exhibition highlights the richness and variety of Italian production, from fashion fabrics, materials in interior design, and sportswear fibers to sustainable fibers.

The panels showcase the rich history and development of Italian textiles, wool production, the art of silk, yarn processing, and fabric production from the Middle Ages to the 18th century. The event introduces fabrics used in garments and interior design, and natural fibres made of organic cotton, generated nylon yarn from pre-and-post consumer waste, and textile waste.

The exhibition also highlights ‘technical’ fabrics characterised as high-performing and address specific needs. It also traces the development of the Italian textile machinery from the 15th century to the present.

Conceived by the CMS Cultura Agency, the ‘Fabrica-Italian Textile and Innovation” Exhibition was supported by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Italian Fashion Industry Business Federation (SistemaModa Italia), the Italian Association of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT), and the Italian Organisation of Crafts and Small-Medium Enterprises (ConfartigianatoImprese).

First organised in Singapore in April, the exhibition will later be held across the world.
