THREADS OF TIME

Elisa Mainente, Product Manager at Ratti

Speak to any designer for long enough and they will confirm an undisputable truth: a design is only as good as the materials it is made from. A lot of our fabrics are designed and woven in Italy. One of our most prestigious and long-running partners is Ratti SpA, founded in 1945. We journeyed down to their stunning factory in Guanzate to spend the day with Product Manager, Elisa Mainente.

As Elisa explains in the interview published in our 2020 catalogue; “As a designer, I should reflect and at best influence society’s sensibilities. I should clearly communicate my philosophy and vision. Yet, regardless of personal style, I must produce a product that is creative, exciting and profitable.” It’s a principle that we share and that is reflected in our vast selection of over a hundred luxury fabrics and leathers; all from the finest fabric houses and tanneries. It’s what allows you to choose a quality design as individual as you are.
