Macrolotto is the name of the industrial area of Prato. A town very close to Florence (Firenze) that has long been home to a small industry of textile factories.
There are over 8000 clothing factories in Prato making garments for the major european retailers. Producing or buying ready-to-wear in Prato means a dramatic reduction in lead times (compared to overseas asian productions) and an umbeatable quality to price ratio.
Together with clothing (the so called fast fashion pronto moda) there is also a wide range of factories producing leathergoods accessories and clothing. This Area of Tuscany has noe become a one-stop solution for all the apparel business.
