…every creation is custom tailored on each client, carefully filed with his personal data, fabric and thread used, so that it maintains its uniqueness through time and never be replicated for others.
Exclusiveness is very demanding in terms of creative effort, but at the same time involves a strong stimulus to always design new shapes and colour patterns.
…a craftsman does not like to repeat himself; he preserves the ancient and precious techniques of the past, while experimenting each time different ways to obtain new and yet better results.
…I remember an exquisite set we made for a Princess’ first-born: silk satin sheets with matching shirts and dressing gowns. But since she would spend a week in bed before her son’s presentation, she asked for seven different sheet sets, in seven colours and designs, one for each day. Needless to say, we also made seven cradles for the baby, together with seven suits matching the mother’s choices.
…I would never change this job. We could have done that in different ways in order to meet the market’s demands, but it would have made us divert too much from what we are and the fun would have gone away.
