"Yarn: Thread or Story"
Canepa at Yarn, the excellence of ‘made in Como’.
Spreading the word on the excellence of ‘Made in Como’ textiles is the goal of the show “Yarn: Thread or Story", to run from 29 July until 3 September in the greenhouses of the Villa del Grumello. Seven textiles and seven accessories provided by local companies, including Canepa, tell the story of who designed, produced and wore them to uncover numerous anecdotes to the general public: from the celebrities who wore them to the talented stylists who transformed them into magnificent outfits and the technologies used in the process. The exhibition tells a story which reveals the unique nature of local production: Como as the birthplace of the high-quality textile industry, both in terms of fashion and technology. "Yarn: Thread or Story" is one of the events promoted by the eighth edition of comON, a project created thanks to support from Unindustria Como to help spread creative ideas, attract the best talent to local companies in the sector, and promote interaction between various businesses, universities, training centres, young students and professionals.
