Italian textiles take centre stage at Milano Unica

More than 21 thousand people visited Milano Unica 2012, the Italian Textiles and Accessories Expo, held in Milan from 11 to 13 September. RadiciGroup, which took part in the event as a member of the Italian association Tex Club Tech, exhibited its range of polyester yarns, with a focus on CornLeaf and r-Radyarn. 

CornLeaf is a solution-dyed yarn manufactured with Ingeo polylactic acid (PLA) biopolymer. PLA is an innovative 100% natural material derived from renewable vegetable sources. r-Radyarn is an eco-sustainable yarn made from 100% post-consumer recycled PET bottles.
 
Based on the results recorded at Milano Unica 2012, textiles made in Italy continue to attract buyers from all over the world: Asia and China in first place, then Russia, France and Germany. The success of made in Italy can certainly be attributed to the features of the trademark: research of quality raw materials, a differentiated offering and continual design innovation.
 
A few days after the close of the event, Mr. Silvio Albini, president of Milano Unica, gave a positive assessment, citing figures in line with previous editions: 21,000 visitors and 458 exhibitors, 74 of which from Europe. 
 
The trade fair has become more international thanks to a larger number of foreign buyers. More than satisfactory was the attendance of buyers from key countries such as China (+75% compared to 2011), Japan (+12%) and Russia (+4%), while the number of buyers from the United States and Europe remained practically unchanged. Buyer attention was focused almost exclusively on high quality products, which supports the view that this textile trade fair stands foremost for quality in terms of product, as well as exhibitors and visitors.
 
Once again, Milano Unica proved to be a well-targeted, specialized, top-quality trade show, able to attract highly qualified customers from all over the world, year after year.
