Le Fil Amalric
the Narrative Thread
It is in Fréjeville that Emmanuel Amalric took over the trade of his grandfather, who earned one of the most important spinning mills in the Midi-Pyrénées area.
He founded Le Fil Amalric in 2005 and developed a network of partners specialized in wool treatment, such as Les Textiles de Garrot and Ets. Henri Plo among others. Emmanuel buys the raw material (wool and precious fibers) that he sends to his partners to be transformed and then sells the carded yarns to weavers and hosiers.
In addition to raw materials and natural fibers, Le Fil Amalric produces its own collections of gloves, bonnets, scarves, socks and sweaters. The main type of wool that they use is Mérinos d’Arles, which is extremely fine and of high quality. Its softness, mixed with the hemp fibers from Ets. Henri Plo, helped develop the Montagne Noire throw.
Le Fil Amalric took part in the Made in Town / Montagne Noire exhibition, which was held from October 21, 2015 to February 13, 2016 at Made in Town in Paris.
