Their business is further growing, expanding from semi-finished products to luxury accessories. They have also doubled their participation in the fair events, as they joined, for the first time, Mipel 114, the leather goods international exhibition, held on 16-19 September, in addition to their traditional participation in Lineapelle95 (scheduled on 25-27 September). They have been launching two new brands, along with the company name, to highlight their connection with the local area: although they supply accessories through Athison (the ancient name of the river Toce, which flows across the Ossola valley) and Oxilla (Domodossola’s Latin old name) brands, Manifattura di Domodossola is still the manufacturing company, a leading player, since 1913, in the industry of woven semi-finished products. “We did want to create a fully Italian supply industry – points out Giuseppe Polli, president of Manifattura di Domodossola -. From hides to the finished product, all processing are carried out in our plants”. Our participation in the fairs also offers a chance to tell about innovation as for Intreccincantiere, a creativity contest, directed at fashion students and design academies worldwide, promoted by Manifattura di Domodossola. The company has been exhibiting its products, for over 25 years, at Lineapelle, the most important leather and materials international fair.
