Since 1958 Filmar is a textile company that has been passionately seeking out the best ways for producing and finishing high quality cotton yarns. Since the day of our foundation, quality and technological innovation, combined with sustainable development and ethics, has been the cornerstone of Filmar’s business. We are committed to sustainable development and to the enhancement of a more responsible fashion. We are therefore actively contributing to supporting the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. We have defined our business models and our production chain to ensure social inclusiveness. We are committed to guarantee that benefits and returns are shared among the company, the communities involved and the stakeholders of the textile supply chain and fashion in general. A vision which has been reflected in the Cottonforlife initiative, launched in 2014, to sustain and promote organic cultivation of Egyptian cotton. With the Cottonforlife initiative, we aim to promote a valuable model for creating an ethical, transparent and completely environmental-friendly production chain for a more sustainable fashion system.


Founded in 1904, Cotonificio Olcese Ferrari creates high-quality yarns by selecting only the best cotton in the word as raw material. Cotonificio Olcese, with its Piancogno factory in Valle Camonica, in the Brescia area, spread over an indoor surface of around 38,000 m², is one of the rare cotton spinners still present in Italy and Europe. Thanks to its professionalism, competence and constant drive to improve both products and productive processes, it became a reference point for the textile sector and the international fashion world.
