Who we are

Elasten was born 30 years ago within the full innovation of a almost unknown product,

“the elasticized yarn”, which has never stopped improving since that time.

Constant research of a new performing product has always characterized Elasten bringing it to become the world leading company in high range stretch yarn production.

Demand for elastic fabrics is getting bigger and bigger since convenience and comfort are people needs rather than just details nowadays.

The history of Elasten marks the history of stretch fabrics worldwide and its cutting-edge structure revealed in quality, typology and production capacity makes it the world biggest one.

Over the years the textile market has changed in several aspects. In turn, Elasten has always followed customers’ requests by developing and increasing its products.

Elasten family company structure together with its employees make this firm extremely multifaceted able to study any product. No wonder if a few years ago we started to use this saying:

“Io elasticizzo anche la mi’ mamma”

“I elasticize even my mommy”

which always makes laugh and may characterize us.

Constant dedication to work featuring my father since my early memories has made it possible that ELASTICIZED LINEN was created in his own hands. He says this is thanks to a pray, I believe this is the conseguence of his huge willpower and the nights spent in front of machinery.

In any case, this invention was also patented worldwide following the same values.

Besides Linen, also Hemp and Ramiè were patented. The yarn in any title available on the world market is patented as well as the deriving fabric made even with a small percentage of said yarn.

Our vision of business is a completing part of ourselves and our care will be carrying it out in the same way as we’ve done till today.

Every day we are pleased to establish new relationships, to strenghten the existing ones and to think that we will still be here in many years though remaining the same researchers as today.

Elasten will always meet your needs


ELASTEN  has been producing stretch yarns for European fabric companies for many years and a few years ago it started to sell its items in non EU countries.

In particular we have International Patent for our stretch yarns made of 100% Linen, Hemp and Ramiè.

We elasticize any existing count of LINEN, HEMP AND RAMIE’, from the coarsest ones Nm 2000 to the finest ones Nm 75.000 or more.

All the possible variants of metric counts, bare and covered elastomers and torsions are protected by our patent which also covers fabrics made with our yarns used 100% or in lower percentages.

The aim of our patented yarns is obtaining complete absence of the so-called “orange skin effect” on fabrics.

They are brand new items on the market, one of a kind. They allow the possibility of having performing stretch or bi-stretch fabrics made of woody materials that could be hardly elasticized till now.

For the first time on the market, you will have a casual or a classic product without the traditional look that linen, hemp and ramiè have had till today.

They are renovated in a more modern key. In the technical field for example, our elastic Linen yarn will enable you to produce a fabric keeping fresh your body temperature without forgetting the important virtues for which linen is famous (for example its natural flames ).

In this fabric elastomer fiber is in the core while the natural material touches the skin.

Such yarns are destined for weaving or knitting, denim and fashion clothing, home furnishing and technical field (shoes).

We provide worldwide companies with our yarns meeting positive reactions because of their uniqueness.

Most of our foreign customers come from Europe, Asia, Japan and South and North America.


Elasten has always made third party work. This is a traditional service in Prato which enables several small and medium companies to carry out their own stage of the textile production chain in the best way.

Every activity cares its machinery in order to offer the best service in its specific sector.

Customer is usually a woven factory , a knitwear or a yarn factory which entrusts its production to the so called third party companies paying a special tarif and avoiding this way taking internal machinery upon itself and expenses for continual renovation.

Prato satellite activities are huge and precious. As a result, the brilliance of each single activity increases the Italian textile creativity which is famous all over the world.

Elasten is a “great” twisting mill and specifically makes elasticization of any yarn available on the market.
