Each employee and the entire Made in Italy supply chain are united by the same ambition – making people and business alike feel connected, despite differences in history, location, cultural influences and productivity.
“The current health crisis has hit us at a delicate time,” explains @Alessio Berdini, ecommerce manager of Fabi Shoes, an international witness of Made in Italy, who has been creating classy footwear for men and women since 1956.
“Obviously, there is no “good time” for such dramatic events to occur, but on a business level it arrived just as we were presenting the new collection online and the shops were starting to sell the same collection. So, suddenly, we found ourselves with the Italian partner stores closed and unable to sell goods with further uncertainty as to when they may re-open. The same happened with our shop in the Marche district. The plant is closed, therefore production stops, so the season is at risk of disappearing.
It will not be easy to recover, it will take innovation, clarity and preparation. It will be necessary to understand what measures to take, not only in our small way, but also together with the whole fashion system. I am pleased to report, that even in such a difficult time, our company wanted to support our home territory, by converting a branch of the company to produce medical masks that we have donated to local bodies, hospitals, rescuers and civil protection”
