Traceability & Fashion is the voluntary traceability system, promoted by Unioncamere and by the Italian Chambers of Commerce and managed by Unionfiliere, to qualify and exploit the products of Gold and Fashion compartments, major protagonists of Made in Italy.

The Health and Textile Association is close to consumers, producers and other associations that take the safety of the textile product and the safeguard of Made in Italy to heart. It operates in strict collaboration with the Ministry of Health, the anti-sophistication associations, the local sanitary and justice structures to prevent and fight against the diffusion on the market of products which can be dangerous to the health of consumers.


Filatura Papi Fabio S.p.A. operates for 125 years (five generations of the Papi family) in the field of precious yarns for Knitwear and Weaving, and understands the importance of excluding from its production processes the substances that are considered dangerous at the present time.

For this important reason, we have decided in February 2016 to subscribe the DETOX commitment, promoted by Greenpeace.

We are sure that this demanding, yet important process, carried out together with a valid group of Companies from the Prato textile district and coordinated by Confindustria Nord, will lead from now to a substantial improvement of our environment for a better quality of life.

This ethical and moral attitude, that has characterized our Company since ever, has brought us to support also other actions, like TF (Traceability & Fashion) and the Health and Textile Association.

Our adherence to the DETOX specifications represents for us a new step towards a constant commitment for the environment and for the health of all of us.

Our Collections of Precious Yarns for Knitwear and Weaving aim at manufacturing high quality products that always have in consideration the highest respect of the environment and of the quality of our lives.

Herebelow the complete text of DETOX, here the MRSL and the analysis carried out on our products: Test Report 1 and Test Report 2.

These tests were made on two of our main yarns, extremely representative of our Collection, and covering more than 50% of our current production.
