Our Christmas gift to you
Our Artisanal gift wrapping comes from sustainable sources of the Italian fashion industry located in Florence.
Due to the artisanal nature of our store we are able to handcraft our packaging with furs, organic leathers, exotic leathers and vintage textiles, making each of our gift boxes unique.
(valid until 20th 2020)
- Furs come from the luxury fashion industry based in Florence. They are leftover cuts, and thus sustainable, and would be otherwise burned despite being Grade AAA quality. In other words, the fur lining used in our boxes partakes in a perfect model of circular economy. When you receive a fur lining in your gift box (complete with certification of its sustainable and certified origin), you help not only the green economy, but you will also gift a quality material previously cut to make, for example, an 80.000 € high fashion fur coat.
- Our leathers used in the lining come from the town of Santa Croce dell'Arno, where leather is tanned organically, aged in leather barrels, and colored by hand. All without chrome or other harmful substances. Our gift box lining leathers come from prime quality materials and would otherwise be destroyed.
- Our vintage textiles are usually leftover cuts from local upholsterers working in the business for 40 plus years. They are all prime quality with former prices from 600 €/sqm (60 €/sf) and up. These vintage textiles have never left the store premises until today but they are sanitised as per strict Italian health regulations.
[All of our Artisans and staff comply with the strictest Italian health regulations wearing masks and gloves to work. All gift boxes are sanified before shipping.]
