WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?

I am a product designer, I studied in Florence and lived 10 years in Paris, where this project was born. The needs of production led me to return to Italy. We produce everything in Marche region, in a small Atelier of artisans, I am very happy about it, I like to work closely with those who realize my ideas. I think this is what design’s about: translating the artisan tradition in a modern way.

THE CONCEPT OF YOUR COLLECTION?

I create bags designed as objects of use, following the principle of Form – Function. The aim is to make life easier for those who live in the city, I like to think of those who wear my bags while walking their dog, buy a metro ticket, ride a bike or visit a museum. Precisely for this reason the collection is continuous, each design is designed to last and not as a simple fashion accessory. Of course also the aesthetics counts, personally I love the minimal style, simple but elegant at the same time.

Initially the collection was available only in black color, this is because for each color the tanneries ask for very high production minima, it took me some time before I found a solution that would allow me to add colors while maintaining the ethical production, but in the end I succeeded. For the colors we use upcycled leather that is the production surplus of other brands. In this we do not start any production cycle, we avoid polluting and dispose of what others do not use. Each color is a limited edition.

WHAT ARE YOUR LUCIDITY PILLS?
