The Group is present on the main product categories (menswear and womenswear, clothing and accessories, still fabrics, knitwear and leather goods) starting from the R&D and engineering phase up to production.
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.
