Who we are

Over 120 years of passion and textile innovation

In 1898 Egisto Lenzi started in Prato his activity to recover noble fibers from used garments. An activity nowadays known as “virtuous fiber recycling”.

The production of “unconventional” fabrics and the continuous search for innovative textile solutions begins in the immediate post-war period,but it is only in the last two decades that, also thanks to a partnership with DuPont® , the great technological transformations in the textile sector led to the consolidation  of the new commercial strategies.

After a last generational change,in June 2013 ,that the Leathertex company took over the Lenzi Egisto brand,know-how and most of production units,giving continuity to technical textile tradition, peculiar to Lenzi Group in the Prato district by over a century.
