We are Comistra
Eco-wool. Made in Italy
From the ancient textile district of Prato, Italy, we produce mechanical high-quality wool by recovering waste from the textile industry.
But Comistra is more than that: it’s also our history, our world.
For four generations our company has been implementing a circular economy. Our machinery applies cutting-edge technology to a traditional concept: recycling old clothes and creating new, better fabrics.
A global history from the small textile district of Prato, Italy
In our factories in the textile district of Prato, Italy, we transform old woolen fabrics into high-quality yarns, which are given a new life: this is our "mechanical wool".
Since 1920 we have believed in sustainable fashion, a true eco-fashion on a global scale that respects our wonderful planet and limits waste.
The climate changes we are witnessing in these years remind us: we have a responsibility towards our extraordinary planet.
Regenerated wool for a truly circular economy
Our regenerated wool is a concrete and feasible way to promote an ecological and sustainable fashion: our grandparents, here in the textile district of Prato, already knew this when they foresaw the best way to recycle old clothes.
From the humble cenciaiolo man pushing a cart from house to house to collect old yarns we have now progressed into a complex industry. This technology is now exportable to the whole world.
A real Eco-fashion is possible
Recycling effectively means producing a quality fabric, competitive even for world-class fashion brands. Discover our lines of fabrics and yarns.
