...something more about me
Hello, my name is Valentina (a.k.a. Vale or La Vale) and I’m the creator, maker and designer of Le idee della Vale (Vale’s Ideas).
I’m from Bologna, a beautiful town in the north of Italy.
Since I was a little girl I have loved learning new techniques to make thinks and I have used them to give shape to my ideas.
I’m often inspired by the craft materials or components that I’m using, other times I’m struck with inspiration when I’m doing something totally unrelated , for example when I’m in a line at the post office or while I’m relaxing watching tv. That’s why I always bring with me a little notebook so I can write down my ideas wherever I am.
I strongly believe that we all need a lot of self irony to be happy so I try to keep that in mind when I design and make all my accessories.
I can’t exactly define the style of my creations but they are certainly influenced by my favorite genres: kawaii, zakka, nordic, minimal, pop, midcentury, retro, modern, geek, techie and kitsch.
Please come to my blog to read the funny adventures of a creative mind.
Owner, Creator, Designer
A (forever) young creative mind
Each creation is unique and handmade by me with love and care.
