MY VELVETS: HOME DECOR MADE IN ITALY

Velvet, my favourite material because of its qualities and its feminine soul, has always charmed me with its delicate touch and the feel of it on my skin and hands makes me think of a caress.

My shoes, my clothes, my bags and accessories are made of velvet, and velvet also decorates my workshop in Venice: it is a great resource in terms of home décor made in Italy, besides being the main fabric in all of my made in Italy fashion creations.

There are different stages in the making of this fabric, different stages that are held together by one precise feature: the whole process is handmade in Venice, in the heart of my city, without the help of machinery of any kind.

I love velvet because it is adaptable, it has a million shades and requires great care when working on it. A meter of my decorated and personalized velvet requires at least twenty passages of hand print, made with formica or wooden moulds that serve as stamps to reproduce the patterns that I wish to apply to the fabrics.

Everything is designed and measured by the naked eye, without the help of any technological device, following the necessary sense of proportions combined with the expert hands of my workers, contemporary followers of the artisanal tradition in Venice and in Italy.

What seemed like just a precious piece of fabric, after the print, becomes something that I would like to define as alive and wonderfully imperfect, precisely because the prints transform it into a unique object that cannot be replicated and need nothing else to be appreciated.

The magic of this process is due above all to the study of the drawings that the moulds will print on fabrics, velvets and silks. Looking at the ancient eastern technique, brought back into trend by Fortuny, and making a new version of this, allowed me to give a different light to my creations, using a knowledge that, in my opinion, is a heritage to be preserved and kept alive.

In my professional path, the creation of fabrics of all shades and dimensions, with prints and colours of different nuances, soon found its place in the home decoration sector, producing authentic items of interior design.

My home decoration collection is made of hand decorated tapestries, pillows, table runners, lamps, bedcovers, sofa covers and much more. Authentic pieces for a wonderful collection that can change the look of your home and give voice to your personality.
