"In our warehouse we keep stocks in a wide range of colors. This enables us to reduce production times considerably."
Francesca Madau, Sales Italy /international markets
Where do you get inspiration and how does the creative process unfold in the development of your collections?
We are mainly inspired by the trends presented in the months before the main events.
We also rely on the feedback we receive from our customers over time, season after season and, last but not least, on our company's archive, which includes products featuring different styles, from the most sophisticated ethnic to the most basic, restyled to modernize products and bring them up-to-date.
Our new collections are based on these elements, combining materials and designs with a focus on jacquard, our point of strength.
What are the differentiating traits of your collections?
We rely on trusted, selected and certified suppliers and every year we find materials of different colors and inspirations and mix them to create items in different styles and textures.
In our warehouse we keep stocks in a wide range of colors. This enables us to reduce production times considerably.
We source yarns in wool, cotton and linen according to the season, keeping textured polyester and cotton polyester as the basic materials of our production.
Our next goal in the short term is to include eco-sustainable materials and recycled fibers that are increasingly in demand in our industry.
We are also working to obtain industry certifications for all our products, so that we can provide our customers with 360° first-class material.
How many collections do you produce per year? Do they feature special elements or characteristics depending on the seasons?
Every year we produce two collections in correspondence with the February and July/September editions of Milano Unica and Premiere Vision.
We therefore present a summer collection and a winter collection inspired by the trends presented.
WE FOCUS ON THE DIVERSIFICATION OF STYLES AND MATERIALS TO MAKE OUR PRODUCTS CONTEMPORARY AND IN LINE WITH MARKET DEMANDS
We focus on the diversification of styles and materials to make our products contemporary and in line with market demands.
In addition, we always have our evergreen and basic line products. We have several jacquard options that we develop in-house, both in terms of designs and logo branded ribbons, which represent our point of strength.
How is your company responding to the uncertainties of this period? What changes are being implemented?
Our company is deploying all possible resources and energy in order to recover from this period of frozen activity and keep customer service unchanged.
This all will be done in full compliance with all the procedures and obligations regarding health and safety in the workplace.
