Description

The Cooperació Fabril, S.A has its origins back in 1900, as a result of a strike in the textile industry. This event gave rise to the first textile cooperative born in Olot, although it did not become legal until 1916. In 1925 the cooperative moved to the old Dusol factory, next to Santa Magdalena bridge, to produce textile items. In 1931 it moved to Josep Clarà square and in Passeig de Barcelona. At that time they began producing saints and decoration items. In 1940 the building was gravely affected by a flood. These days, the factory does not exist, but the chimney located in Catalonia square has been preserved.
