How I became a wool designer?
It was just a case...

After graduating as a showcase designer and many successful years as a restaurant and event manager, I decided to fulfil a long-lasting wish and moved from Germany to Italy.
By renovating and rebuilding a very old farmhouse in the roman landscape I could set the basis for MALDIMAGLIA*´s headquarter and studio.


Discovering merino wool as the ideal medium,
in 2002 I made a rather random first contact with the now basic material. It was “love at first sight” – colours, composition and the almost unlimited possibilities of this precious and unbelievably flexible material made an impressive impact.

How I became a wool designer?
It was just a case...

After graduating as a showcase designer and many successful years as a restaurant and event manager, I decided to fulfil a long-lasting wish and moved from Germany to Italy.
By renovating and rebuilding a very old farmhouse in the roman landscape I could set the basis for MALDIMAGLIA*´s headquarter and studio.


Discovering merino wool as the ideal medium,
in 2002 I made a rather random first contact with the now basic material. It was “love at first sight” – colours, composition and the almost unlimited possibilities of this precious and unbelievably flexible material made an impressive impact.
Therefore the extra fine merino wool became the perfect and multi-purpose basis for my artistic ideas and experimental needs.

In 2004 it became serious:

The brand MALDIMAGLIA* (which is Italian and could be translated as “desire for wool”) was founded. In 2006 and 2007 MALDIMAGLIA* was represented at the internationally known and orientated trade fair of Frankfurt “Tendence Lifestyle”. Furthermore the brand became available with its creative products in various shops and boutiques in Europe such as Munich/Freising, Offenburg, Freiburg, Mainz, Berlin and Rome.

MALDIMAGLIA* has a very own interpretation of old handcraft. Through the creative handling of the merino wool sensual-poetic unique pieces and very limited editions with highest quality are produced.

Extra fine merino wool (mixed with 20% polyamide for a higher elasticity) originates in Australia and is handled by the famous company “Baruffa” in northern Italy. It is a silksoft and light material available in over 50 different sensual colours.
‘Soft to the touch’-items for every area of life are emerging from this basic material: habitation, fashion, cuddly things for kids, bags for your technology and other acessories...

My wool creations are appropriate for all seasons of the year and for every area of life. All this with a renewable natural material: wool is self-cleaning, resistant to dirt, smoothly warming and temperature-balancing.


Thank you!
And enjoy my little selection for etsy...
