We encourage and support the development of emerging talent of textile design through international talent scouting and targeted residencies in our headquarters in Prato, one of the main textile districts of Europe. We bring talented, motivated, young European designers to Prato. We initiate an exchange between traditional textile production companies, by showing them new means for creative innovation, and young textile designers, by putting them in contact with companies who have the technical know how necessary to produce their creations.


Lottozero is:

Design Office: we design textiles on our own, we help companies and textile designers get in touch with one another, we search for the best new styles and trends. We also help with the practical production of many designs by up and coming textile and fashion designers.

Textile Laboratories: someone described us as a Fab Lab for textile design, and we love it! Knitting, Silkscreen printing, felting, weaving, dying, sewing, laser cutting….you name it! Our labs will be open starting June 2017 to anyone who will want to use them.

Kunsthalle: we invite people from all over the world to our residency project in Prato, we are open to propositions and at the end of the stay there will be an exhibition in our Kunsthalle.

Shared Studios: the Lottozero headquarter is quite big, overall about 400 sqm, it’s a beautiful space and it’s getting better every day… we share it with other artists, designers, creatives.
