Luca Sburlati, CEO of Pattern S.p.A, commented: “The entry of the S.M.T. knitwear factory within the Pattern Group after our listing is a fundamental step to achieve our goal: the creation of the Italian luxury design hub. Our choice of the Emilia-Romagna region, as well as the previous acquisition of Roscini Atelier in Umbria, want to promote the different entrepreneurial excellences and the extraordinary skills of the Italian territory. The most important thing was to meet people who shared our corporate culture and our values about technology and sustainability. Stefano Casini from S.M.T. represents what we believe in. This reality is made of technological innovation combined with tradition and handicraft that converge in the engineering and production of luxury knitwear for the most important fashion houses. We are in front of unique skills that have to be enhanced, these are skills on which our country has to invest.”
