Our company Manifatture tessili Prete was born in 1950 thanks to Carmine Prete and his wife Vincenza. After many years in Switzerland, they decided to create their own company in Scafati, where since 1824 the Wenner Swiss family introduced the textile tradition of Jacquard fabrics.
We are leader in linen, hemp, cotton and mixed fabrics production. We produce for famous brands but we also create our 100% natural collections. Every step of our manufacturing is done in Italy, so we can guarantee real 100 % Made in Italy high quality products. Our standard quality is certified by “Masters of Linen” and OEKO-TEX.
The “Master of linen” certification guarantees that the fabric is cultivated and transformed in West Europe; it also guarantees high quality, durability, color resistance and dimensional stability, the transparency of description of fabric composition.
The “OEKO-TEX Standard 100” is an independent and uniform international control and certification system for raw materials, semi-finished and finished products and guarantees high and effective product safety .
Design For over 70 years we have been designing fabrics of various styles and colors Coco Chanel said: if you want to be original, be ready to be copied. Each fabric is the result of a work that starts with an idea and then is processed, once by hand on graph paper and today on the computer with software for jacquard machines.
Every year at least two collections alternate with new designs and styles that add to the precedents without ever replacing themselves. This work has been going on for years and this is how there are more than 2000 drawing in the MTP archives and if you consider all the variants of size the number grows considerably.
We always choose 100% natural yarns with zero environmental impact to realize products that last over time and that ensure unique luxury feeling. We think that Nature never goes out of fashion, so our slogan is: Natural is chic!
Durability, protection from heat and cold, healthiness are ensured by using 100% natural yarns. We don’t add chemical processes or synthetic materials in our clothes!
Breathable and antibacterial, the fabrics in natural fibers are breathable and absorb moisture without bad smells. Most products can be made in different colors. The shades of color are inspired by the principle of naturalness that represents the cornerstone of our entire production.
We have different looms with different width: 180, 270, 320, 360 for 100% linen and 180 and 360 for linen cotton, we use to produce mixed fabric with hemp and wool to have a special collection.
