About

Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. Fill your life with the beauty of nature.

High in the Italian mountains of a historical valley live father and daughter Domenico and Stefania. They dedicate their time to nature and art, tending the fruit and vegetable gardens, harvesting wild plants and creating artisan crafts using all natural 100% organic materials; harvested and grown in an eco-sustainable way. Each branch individually chosen, air-dried and cut by hand. Each canvas painted with patience and creativity.

Every year they plant more trees to continue this ancient tradition and increase bio-diversity. They respect the natural cycles of nature and care for each tree as if it were a part of their family.

No artificial colours or chemical treatments on any of their pieces; They like to keep them as nature intended with its beautiful natural colouring and earthy scent.

Their passion and love for nature is expressed through their unique handcrafted work, each peice having a individual story. Living, breathing and respecting the wild outdoors each day in total harmony with nature.

Willow has been their inspiration a majestic tree most associated with the moon, water, the Goddess and all that is feminine. It is the tree of dreaming, intuition and deep emotions. Symbolically it belongs to the beginning of spring, when all of life is stirring in the depths and begins to shoot outwards once again.
