Who we are

CORDONFIL® works in the textile sector manufacturing threads and laces with different materials, finishes, colours and measures for the footwear industry, clothing, decoration, costume jewelery, etc. using natural and synthetic raw materials of the highest quality.

Manuel Gil Forniés founded CORDONFIL® in 1973 after 20 years of dedication to the thread sector; in 1975 he implemented the lace production as a complement to the manufacture of threads for hand sewing and Goodyear stitching; and since the early nineties, our specialty is polished or waxed lace, intended for high quality dress shoes.
The second generation of the company has continued mainly dedicated to the footwear sector, but without excluding any other sector, working for the majority of the most renowned manufacturers and stockists within this industry, and counting among our customers with some of the main worldwide renown brands. Proud to work together with all of them, we export more than 50% of our production mainly to Europe, Africa and America.

Who we are
In addition to this sector, in CORDONFIL® we work our products getting them to stand out in other quite different sectors: from the textile (with laces for sweatshirts, swimsuits, etc ...) to pyrotechnics, going through home decoration, crafts, packaging, jewellery, etc ... In any sector where a braided lace or thread is needed, CORDONFIL® can provide the perfect solution to your needs.

Thanks to the large number of materials used in the manufacture of our products, along with the full range of colors with which we work, we can offer the product that best suits the needs of our customers. Our raw materials offer a great resistance to use, which gives our products an extensive durability. In addition, we have extensive experience in working with samples of materials (leather, fabric ...) or references (Pantone, RGB, etc ...) to get the color that perfectly matches your sample or design. We update our color chart according to the trends of each new season.
