Commenting on the popularity of the brand, Pinto claimed that they have over 500 stores in Italy along with 200 in other parts of the world. “Due to the increasing popularity of the brand in addition to the 200 stores we have in other parts of Europe we are looking to expand to Asia and beyond hence our presence in Sri Lanka in partnership with Softlogic. We have some of our top suppliers here in Sri Lanka and we believe that this is a good area to build our brand name. We are offering a product that is different and we know Sri Lankan customers will like it” he added.
“The name of our brand Yamamay translates to butterfly in Japanese. This butterfly lives inland away from pollution and thrives in a clean environment. There is a purity about this butterfly that is also echoed in our product” Pinto explained.
