The pattern engineer is the professional that translates the ideas of the designer into a product. His main responsibility is the engineering of the patterns for upper and lining. He also needs to have a good knowledge of:
  • the entire manufacturing process
  • the development of the shoe last and of all the bottom components such as insoles, soles and heels
  • the different materials that can be used in production such as leathers, synthetics and fabrics
The pattern making techniques are fundamental to the design process that leads to the creation of a footwear collection. The strength of Italian pattern engineers is one of the key ingredients for Italian reputation in the field of footwear. The industrial shoe making process is the focus of our course. ARSUTORIA School has a unique sample room equipped with all the machines needed to make shoes in a factory.
