Its mill has a Style Centre in Molvena (Vicenza, Italy), whose staff is continuously engaged in researching, and creating new kinds of performances, producing more than 1000 new fabrics every year and the Slow Factory, where blankets, samples and production pieces are manufactured.

Another participant Sinv is an Italian company which specialises in ready-to-wear apparel. It was founded in 1975. It first came to market with its own brand, Daily Blue, developed with Adriano and Rossella Goldschmied, but, after 10 years, its focus changed to the newly-borne licensing business. In 1985 it started collaborating with Krizia for the launch of Krizia Jeans, and since then has partnered with fashion houses such as Moschino, Cavalli, Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Chloè, Donna Karan, and Yohji Yamamoto.
