Developing our Supply chain
An extended family: The Gucci family is extensive. Throughout Italy some 19,300 people work indirectly for Gucci. They are not directly employed by us, but they are definitely part of our culture. Many of these companies have supplied Gucci for over two or three generations. They are us, and we are them.
The next generation: We are passionate about craftsmanship. This is expressed by our Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, who respects and draws on their craftsmanship, their dedication and creativity in everything that he does. On a daily basis, Gucci shares this appreciation and respect with the world.
We use old, sometimes ancient techniques, mixing them with cutting-edge materials and new approaches. We must be honest: industries like ours face a skills shortage. Society has somehow told young people that there is something wrong with working with their hands. The opposite is true. We are totally committed to reinstating the prestige and the value of this work. In every possible way we uphold and celebrate this extraordinary supply chain. We are fundamentally invested in the intergeneration transfer of skills and we take a strategic position to ensure that the next generation of artisans can build total confidence.
