Michela Marchese Patti, CEO, MDL, says: “Finding an appropriate partner to bring emoji® to pyjamas, underwear and socks categories has long been an ideal for MDL. Thanks to the professionalism of the Tezenis team that dream has been realised. Tezenis has been able to enhance this property, expressing its maximum potential in these important categories. We are sure that the emoji - the iconic brand collection from Tezenis will be very popular with homewear buyers and gift-givers everywhere."
