Make yourselves comfortable at home for a documentary broadcasted on the TLN TV Channel, presenting the TLN Media Group’s award-winning original production, Tendenza: The Modernization of the Italian-Canadian Textile Industry.

Tendenza: The Modernization of the Italian-Canadian Textile Industry is a documentary produced in collaboration with Montreal native Anthony Sarracco of Rebellion Films.

There was a time when the label “Made in Italy” meant a product had been branded for greatness – a stamp of approval confirming it was made by skilled hands with the best materials. Today, through modernization of global markets, this “stamp” has lost its lustre.

Tendenza explores the Canadian textile industry from the perspective of Canada’s most notable Italian designers: denim mogul Salvatore Parasuco, internationally renowned textile guru, Carmine Lauro and suit-maker Denis Limosani of Bosco Uomo. Immigrating to Canada in the 1950’s and 60’s in search of new opportunities, each designer is faced with continuing their craft and preserving their legacy in the years to come. Tendenza delves into the hardships and successes of each family and brand and how these creative pioneers are adapting to an ever-changing business market in the midst of globalization.
