Chemical products for wet-end finishing and dyeing
Fashion & Technology 2018: Luxury Tannery gathering
The Taddei & Manzi company of Santa Croce sull'Arno was founded in 1969 by the founding partners Raffaello Taddei and Massimo Manzi, and is recognized globally as a top company in the production of chemicals for wet-end finishing and dyeing. “For some years, Massimo’s son Simone Manzi has been running the company, which has always been the exclusive distributor of central Italy for the Dutch multinational Stahl company.”
Since 2006, Taddei & Manzi has organized the biennial “Fashion & Technology” event, a fundamental meeting where tanning industry clients and professionals are presented with all the advances related to the company’s products.
In 2018, the ninth edition of the event will be held approximately between the end of May and the beginning of June at the prestigious Terme Tettuccio in Montecatini Terme, which counts to repeat the success of the past years: in 2016 about 300 representatives from over 150 tanneries in the Tuscan area and beyond were invited.
“Fashion & Technology” 2018 will focus on the presentation of the Fall/Winter 2019/2020 season, with its new colour chart and sample showing with new articles and innovative production and manufacturing systems. The program is completed by Gianluca Gori’s report, the European Fashion Design’s designer, illustrating trends and fashion directives related to the F/W 2019/2020 season. Unlike a regular trade fair, “Fashion & Technology” is a much more proactive event for the tanning industry, a service bound to fashion, trends and colours, where everyone can follow the inputs that are provided, and apply and develop them to their own needs. Even the timing is right to ensure that the tanneries have the material time to prepare their collections in view of the trade fairs starting the following September.
