Warm hues, and explosively beautiful patterns seem to define Alessandro Cattaneo’s design aesthetic. He is a talented fellow; his technological prowess has perfected the art of silk printing, and he is an artisan-cum-artist whose medium is textiles.
Stationed above Lake Como below the Alps his workshop is a hub of creativity brimming with yarn in breathtaking colours and painterly prints that will in time be transformed into precious puffs of wonder by heart-based artisan-makers.
Indeed, we had found treasure, and we are thrilled to bring you an exquisite scarf that blends tradition with modernity and flows whether it is draped, wrapped or tied. A silky experience awaits you!
