In my work I try never to separate the search for beauty, love and respect for Mother Nature.
My adventure as a craftswoman started with spinning. I learned to spin grease wool in addition to washing it to be able to buy it directly from our shepherds. Thus, as well as having a completely traceable product in my hands, I lend a hand to the farmers and to nature. I purchase my wools in the Biella and Bergamo regions, from the Brianzola-breed sheep consortium. Naturally I also use the wools of precious breeds, such as Merinos and Blufaced Leicester. I try to carry out the entire production process single-handedly. I also learned to card and mix the various fibres and different colours. Sometimes I combine unusual and recycled materials with the wool, such as old audio cassette ribbons, silk remnants, copper washers, pieces of yarn left over from other jobs etc....I try to use the wools in their natural colours or I colour them myself with vegetable dye. I often gather the vegetables and roots I use for dyeing in the countryside around my house. I have a garden and a vegetable garden where I cultivate some dyeing plants, in addition to experimenting with lesser-known species. Wool is my great love, but I also like a lot to use tussah silk, mohair, alpaca and vegetable fibres including cotton, linen, bamboo, ramie and hemp of which I prefer to use the natural rough fibres, difficult to find, but better, both in terms of aesthetic output and eco-sustainability. I like to use my yarns to make items of clothing and accessories, by using needles or the crochet hook. For some time I have been using the loom which enhances my work to the full. I often use my naturally-dyed wools to make felt, especially nuno-felt. In my creations I often combine different techniques. I have also recently discovered the eco-print technique, which allows you to print leaves, flowers and barks directly onto wool, silk and felt, using a completely natural process. Clothes and accessories dyed in eco-print are always made of natural materials, since the printing process for vegetable materials does not work with synthetic materials. I prefer simple and flowing models that enhance femininity. Through spinning and by creating little accessories and pieces of jewellery I try to reuse all the material I have available.
Creating with the hands is a form of meditation, it is good for the spirit and the body. We shouldn’t let ourselves be limited by the fear of making a mistake or of not being equal to the task: everyone is an artist in their own way. In my work I try never to separate the search for beauty, love and respect for Mother Nature.
I think beauty brings joy in our lives and I hope my creations make you happy. Thank you for visiting and have a nice shopping time!
