Gaia Frassineti will remain the Managing Director at Frassineti, and OTB will support the factory in transitioning to a more sustainable business model, using its technological know-how and sustainability expertise.

Renzo Rosso, the Chairman and Founder of OTB Group, stated their luxury brands prioritise craftsmanship and high-quality raw materials, made possible through collaborations with companies like Frassineti. Rosso believes that investing in such companies and expertise is crucial for Italy's future.
