In December 2019 SMT joined Pattern Group, a group made of four Italian companies leader in engineering, development, prototyping and production for the most important international luxury brands, each focused on a specific sector:
based in Correggio (Reggio Emilia), Emilia Romagna
based in Collegno (Turin), Piemont
focus on outerwear, sportswear and tailoring
based in Spello (Perugia), Umbria
focus on soft fabrics and jersey, dresses and couture
based in Scandicci (Florence), Tuscany
Luxury Leather Goods
The coexistence of 4 units allows the Group to directly manage several across-the-board works, including hybrid garments characterized by different materials and processing.
The mission of the Group consists in finding a balance between handicrafts and technology.
As a matter of fact, Pattern Group constantly invests in the research and development of all phases of design and production process. The best examples are the research of the most sophisticated CAD 3D software for pattern making and the implementation since 2020 of the digital warehouse in Turin to optimize the processes of the supply chain thanks to the development of blockchain and RFID technology.
At the same time, Pattern – that cares a lot about human resources – has adopted since 2012 an internal code of ethics, defining in written form a clear company policy in relation to the social, organisational and work condition responsibility.
