Xinao Textiles from China opens its
Xinao Textiles Europe in Biella, Italy
Xinao Textiles Europe, the Italian subsidiary of Xinao
Textiles Inc., one of the world leaders in the worsted wool
spinning industry, has officially started business. The Chinese
worsted wool spinning company, after being a leader in the Far
East and the USA, is the only one in the world with a complete,
vertical supply chain, now sets its sights on Europe.
Xinao Textiles Europe is based in Verrone (Biella), in the
heart of the Biella wool district, and will be not only a
commercial facility, but a development and production centre
crucial for strengthening its position in Europe. The company
will be a benchmark for the Italian and European textile market,
guaranteeing rapid manufacturing times and products in line with
its taste and demands.
Alberto Gaia, General Manager of Xinao Textiles Europe
following a career in the worsted wool yarn industry, explains:
“Our aim is to become the collector of the European fashion
market’s ideas and trends, to interpret its taste and needs and
offer a rapid, competitive service. We have chosen Biella
because it has always been an international wool yarn centre of
the highest level, which will contribute to defining our style.
We want to become part of this area, integrating with the local
textile services industry to create a product with Italian taste
and high added value”.
Mr. Alberto Gaia, General Manager,
Xinao Textiles Europe.
Xinao Textiles Inc. was founded in 1991 and listed on the
Shanghai Stock Exchange in 2014. In two decades it has
established itself as a leader in the Far East and the USA. In
2017 it produced 10 million kilos of yarn, with a 10% increase
over 2016. Almost 80% of its market is external knitwear and 20%
circular knits and socks. The secret of its international
success lies in its totally integrated production chain: from
its own farm in Australia, which supplies part of its wool
requirements, to all combing, treatment, dyeing and spinning
stages. Meticulous selection of raw materials means it is now a
leader in fine and extra-fine yarns, manufacturing a product
with international appeal.
To a favourable price/quality ratio, it adds the speed of its
service, special attentiveness towards the sensibilities of
consumers in all the countries to which it exports, and
environmental awareness. It holds the main international
certifications, including RWS (Responsible Wool Standard),
Ecolabel EU, Woolmark, Oekotex, Global Recycled Standard for
recycled polyester, Organic Content Standard (Organic Content
100 and Organic Content Blended) and is a Bluesign partner, with
its supply chain engaged in the certification process.
Xinao Textiles has long taken part in the main international
textile fairs such as Spinexpo and Prèmiere Vision, while Xinao
Textiles Europe ushers 2019 with participation at ISPO Munich
and Filo in Milan where the slogan “From farm to yarn” will
underscore its key strength.
