At the Client’s request, before the launch of the collection, Pattern can make a pre-production sample to verify one last time the garment. The “Product and Production” team will take care of all production steps, paying great attention to the quality of every garment and also to the delivery timing. Every production step and all Pattern’s suppliers are followed through certification processes, specifically through the SA8000 Standard. The company also deals with a wide management area. The clothing manufacturing phase is coordinated by Pattern in close cooperation with its contract manufacturers, chosen through a certification process. Being primary stakeholders of the supply chain, they have to follow the management and social responsibility lines undertaken by the company. This has allowed the building of a trust-based relation between the contract manufacturers and Pattern. The solidity of these collaborations has reached such an extent that Pattern initially asks the contract manufacturers to sign a letter of intent and common values.
