CONSORZIO TOSCANA MANIFATTURE CONSORTIUM. THE FUTURE OF BUSINESS.
Toscana Manifatture is a consortium of footwear, leather goods and related fashion businesses that supports associated companies in building their future. It offers high added value services for innovation, training, promotion and representation to the main stakeholders aimed at building an efficient and modern Tuscan fashion supply chain.
SINCE 1981 AT THE SERVICE OF THE TUSCAN MANUFACTURING.
Toscana Manifatture was founded in 1981, under the name of Consorzio Calzaturieri della provincia di Pisa (Consortium of Footwear of the Pisan province), with the aim of promoting the art of the Pisan shoe industry around the world. Over time we have changed a lot and our mission has evolved by adapting to the new needs of the market. Thus, we began networking, addressing ourselves to the other companies in the entire Tuscan leather district with the aim of promoting the best conditions for the development of the territory by enhancing craftsmanship, innovation and the sharing of knowledge. The important results we achieved in recent years push us in this direction more and more.
THIS IS THE REALITY. IT IS NOT EASY, BUT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.
It is known that international fashion brands are constantly looking for an advanced and reliable territorial ecosystem to which they can bestow their manufacturing. Tuscany, and in particular the Leather and Footwear District, has greater potential than any other territory to become the SLoT (Local Territorial System) for the manufacturing of excellence for the fashion system.
For this to happen it is necessary:
• support companies, at present and in the short term, by systematizing the acquired knowledge and skills, feeding the best practices and enhancing the great artisan history of our territory;
• increase business opportunities in the medium and long term, keeping alive that cultural humus that has allowed the growth of invaluable workers, also through the training and creation of integrated supply chain mechanisms capable of creating and strengthening synergies among the related industries;
• increase the ability of companies to carry out research and development to encourage the creation of new products and more efficient production processes;
• enhance the know-how of each company through the multiplication of business opportunities.
THE FUTURE IS NOW.
We believe that all of this is not only desirable but also possible because we are well aware of the quality of our manufacturers, the creativity of the workers in dealing with production issues, the tenacity and foresight of our entrepreneurs. This is ‘Made in Tuscany’ and for this reason, Toscana Manifatture proposes itself as a territorial, cultural and industrial engine and glue, in order to make the quality manufacturing of our territory the international reference point of the fashion industry. We are aware that we have an ambitious goal and it is for this reason that we face reality with determination and efficiency. As the Latins used to say “festina lente” (hurry slowly), we say “the future is now”.
AT THE SERVICE OF ALL.
Consorzio Toscana Manifatture’s management structure is extremely streamlined and efficient. Its Board of Directors is made up of seven highly experienced entrepreneurs, representative of the associated companies, and an operational director.
The Board collectively defines the consortium's lines of action. It is divided into budget commissions, institutional relations, marketing and communication, technical and human resources. The directors, who remain in office for up to three years and are eligible for re-election, exercise their mandate free of charge and in the exclusive interest of the consortium.
