The "Festival Textile Manufacture" has established itself as an international fair, serving as a central meeting point for creatives and textile enthusiasts. Initiated by the European Textile Academy, it creates a platform where the connection between traditional crafts, art professions, and the world of design is celebrated..

The fair is held at the impressive, medieval Maretsch Castle in Bolzano. Known as a crossroads between Southern and Northern Europe, the city is rich in trading traditions, providing the ideal backdrop for the festival. It attracts visitors and exhibitors from around the world twice a year, standing out for its idyllic location.

At the heart of the "Festival Textile Manufacture" are diverse thematic areas such as fashion, interior design, art, jewelry, and design. The event allows participants to engage directly with experienced masters and exhibitors, and to further their knowledge in workshops and conferences on craftsmanship, design, and sustainability.

One of the highlights of the fair is the European Textile & Craft Award, which recognizes and honors exceptional achievements in contemporary and traditional crafts as well as art. This award emphasizes the fair's role as a significant venue for exchange, recognition of innovation, and mastery in these creative fields.

Exhibitors from various industries, including fashion, artisanal crafts, and design, showcase a wide array of products and services. The fair offers visitors, mainly professionals from these sectors, the opportunity to discover the latest trends and innovations and to network with other industry representatives.

The venue, Maretsch Castle, is not only attractive due to its historical significance but also because of its accessibility. These aspects contribute to the fair's popularity, making it an essential event for everyone interested in craftsmanship, art, and design.
