We choose our materials among the rich variety of traditional Tuscan raw materials and finishes. The leathers we use are from Pisa, the different types of wood from Pistoia, the metals from Elba. Following the example of Prato, famous for its textiles and its historical ties to China, the mother of pearl in our inlaid furniture and the bamboo in our outdoor collection are imported. The nearby town of Lastra a Signa offers its mastery in straw craft with its bags, hats and dresses. And how could we forget Carrara with its quarries of White grey-veined marble and the even more prestigious pink Calacatta and Breccia marbles. All along the Italian coast you can find beautiful rocks such as Slate, Roman Travertine and volcanic Onyx. The immense variety, the creativity and the resourcefulness that Tuscany offers and that you can also find in its rich culinary tradition, bring about ever-evolving creations and original combinations of raw materials. It is this same inspiring tradition that encourages us to continually be in search of new “forgotten” materials.
