The first Fall courses in knitting, weaving, printing and textile business management are set to
begin at Polimoda S.r.l., a fashion and textile training institute that opened earlier this year in
the former facilities of a wool spinning mill near Prato, Italy.H. Stoll GmbHandCo. KG, Germany,
provided CMS flat knitting machines and M1 pattern workstations to the institute, whose facilities
comprise 1,000 square meters of lecture rooms and laboratories. Polimoda shareholders including
Stoll hope the training center will provide future qualified staff to the Italian textile industry.
