A search of the inner self and the connection with the World
The contemporary whirlwind of technological and social evolution lends us endless opportunities to enjoy new experiences, thus forgetting how to take time and listen to our feelings, expecting them to be synchronized with the ever-changing surrounding world.
Nevertheless, we all try to recover old sensations in everyday life – just think about when we buy something because it recalls us the aroma of a dish our grandmother used to cook for us when we were children, when we used to live the present with a great unconscious slowness, living every single moment to the fullest and grasping its ultimate meaning until it became part of ourselves!
The continuous search for a connection with the world, with the inner self and one’s own historical background lies behind every single moment of a craftsmen’s work and fills every thought while they are merging with their artwork.
Even the smallest artwork has a soul, indissolubly blended with local traditions, experiences, people, air and sun, since every region is independent yet part of the same world.
Sicilian craftsmanship – Made in Italy & Made in Sicily
We have just started and amazing journey through Made in Italy and Made in Sicily, trying to establish a deep connection with Sicilian craftsmanship, and we have had the chance to appreciate the huge variety and high quality of local artworks which recall and preserve the heritage of an ancient past.
We have been bewitched by the knowledge gained from the study of the manual processes behind the creation of “sfilati” (the typical Sicilian embroidery), ceramics, jewellery, paper mache, wrought iron, mosaics and pastry.
It is now clear to us that in order to reinterpret tradition the new Sicilian craftsmen must adapt ancient rules to contemporary needs and tools, preserving the historical and cultural heritage with a hint of innovation and creativity.
The artisan soul permeating the smallest seam line of our handmade bags, the skilful cut of our shoe uppers and every chromatic matching of our collection is a present for you – This is what you need to slow down your thoughts and enjoy every little thing in life!
