About Us

Esemplare lives constant research as the key to evolution and innovation. The project interprets technological experimentation by creating a perfect combination of functionality and aesthetics. Past and present intertwine overcoming the limits for a more sustainable future. This is Exemplary.

The beginning

Pattern was founded in 2000 by Fulvio Botto and Francesco Martorella who, after experiences as pattern makers at the most important fashion houses, decide to start a project in the field of design and to support the production phase since 2005.

The Group, a point of reference for the most prestigious international fashion brands, today represents the largest independent international reality in terms of design and modeling skills dedicated to the first lines.

In 2014 Pattern acquires Esemplare, the brand that fully represents the Group's values.

Since 2015 Pattern has drawn up an annual Sustainability Report to report its progress towards sustainable development. On 17 July 2019 the Pattern company is listed on the AIM market.
