Bardazzi Jersey received the 303 Tuscans Ethical Fashion award in Paris

The company was set up by Alberto Bardazzi in 1983 : its first name was Alberto Bardazzi Maglia and its target group the small “pronto-moda” (ready-to-wear fashion) of Prato . The idea of producing knitted fabrics placed the company in a niche market segment, where Alberto was able to express his talent. The products made in those years are milestones in the history of fabrics and it is no coincidence that they are exhibited at the Prato Textile Museum. They had a great impact on fashion and this led Alberto to change from being a sole proprietor to a limited liability company. In the following years he moved the headquarters twice in order to find a larger space while at the same time the turnover and the number of employees were increasing. In 2001 the financial newspaper “il Sole 24 ore” listed the Alberto Bardazzi S.r.L. as one of the best 500 companies in Italy and this was the most exciting period for Alberto’s professional career. In 2003 while doing new ambitious projects, Alberto died prematurely of a disease that did not take away his desire to work and to impress. It seemed the end, but it was a new starting point because the Bardazzi family was strong enough to draw motivation and stimuli to carry on with the company. Today it is run by a sound and experienced group of people and it is proud of having sales relationships all over the world.

Ways To Put A Stop To Boredom And Keep Your Mind Active

Keeping your mind active and avoiding boredom stops you from sitting and stagnating. Boredom can kill creativity and drive, so it's best to avoid situations whereby you have nothing to do. Quite simply, to keep your mind active, you should look for activities you enjoy. If you're often bored on your train journey home, then think about downloading some stimulating apps or games onto your phone. If this doesn't appeal to you, then consider keeping a book of word searches or Sudoku puzzles to complete. Avoiding boredom isn't easy if you've grown accustomed to it, so shake things up now and begin combating boredom and periods of inactivity, both mental and physical ones.
