"The apparel caravan next stop: DIGITALIZATION"

along with the latest development in Digitization.

"The apparel industry is still at the beginning of the digitization. Companies need to accelerate digitization and integrate it into their broader transformation.

Those that succeed will break down silos between sourcing and product development, shorten lead times, lower costs and increase transparency to manage sustainability."

- McKinsey


This year’s MISSION for the factory visits:


The company’s mission is to add value to the product with quality and continuous improvement, using digital and innovative methods so as to ensure the success of the company.

Privileging manual labor combined with technological innovation this company, which currently employs nearly 500 workers, is a "huge tailoring" working with the best and biggest brands in the world.

Established in 1984, Crialme stands out in the textile industry as a world reference in the tailoring business thanks to its flexibility and capacity to adapt to fashion and market trends. Originally dedicated to the manufacturing of classic men trousers, after successive investments in mechanisms and infrastructures, as well as in the qualified training of their staff, it quickly adapted to market needs, starting to offer a wide range of products. The management experience and reputation are supported by a dynamic commercial team who provides real-time information regarding each step of the collections/productions, always favouring a client-oriented approach.

The company is a relevant supplier of major sports brands, holding also the ownership of two own brands, one of them specifically active.
