Manifattura di Domodossola, 103 years of braided products that are looking to the future. The competition for emerging designers is back at Lineapelle

Braided products as a source of inspiration for young designers from around the world. Manifattura di Domodossola brings the results of the “Intreccincantiere” competition, organised in collaboration with Lineapelle, to the fair. For the 2016 edition, there are more than 80 creations, presented by the same number of emerging designers, intended for the leather goods, furniture, footwear, clothing and jewellery sectors. The prototypes, produced using braided products from MdD, were evaluated by a panel of experts during the last edition of Lineapelle and the models from the seven winners are now on display at the company’s stand in Hall 24. Manifattura di Domodossola, which has been in business for 103 years, keeps up a good pace on the market thanks to the experience gained in various sectors and its differentiated production: “Our market is stable, although the situation changes every day and there isn’t a well-defined trend – explains owner Giuseppe Polli –. If one of our customers takes a dip, there are others on the up.” The entrepreneur also senses good signs of recovery from tourism in Italy, Greece and Spain: “There is a feeling that shopping has improved, especially as regards accessories. I think that maybe our customers’ warehouses have finally been emptied and there is more optimism.”
