Summary

Summary: 
An Italian designer with more than 15 years of experience in graphic design and with international collaboration in the fashion sector has created a collection of products in the home decor sector using an innovative eco-sustainable fabric, decorated with patterns that recall the Mediterranean area and using an ancient printing technique. Partners are sought for both commercial agency agreement or distribution services.

Description

Description: 

An Italian atelier managed by a designer, with international experience gained both in Europe and in the USA, thanks to the collaboration with prestigious multinationals in the fashion sector, is specialized in the home decor sector.
The products are made with an innovative eco-sustainable fabric and printed with the recovery of an ancient technique developed in Sicily, the designer's land of origin. The innovative material as well as being environmentally sustainable is stain resistant, does not contain PVC (PolyVinyl Chloride) and chemical additives and is therefore particularly suitable for indoor and outdoor furnishing. It is also characterized by quality and durability. Canape and fine linens, natural dyes and eco-friendly water-based colors are also used to obtain the products. With its distinctive and functional design the atelier, carefully follows every step from design to print, to the finished product.
The decorations printed on the fabric are the result of a work of recovery of themes that recall typical decorations of the Mediterranean area, such as Islamic/Byzantine mosaics or drawings inspired to the Moor’s domination in Sicily.
Products made with stain-resistant fabric (bags, sachets) allow for the storage of wet items (soap, swimsuit, etc.).
The company is already engaged in cooperation with international partners but intends to open up to a broader international dimension. To reach this aim, the designer is interested in trade intermediary services. A commercial agency agreement will be proposed to agents who can represent designer’s products and who have a wide network of contacts in the home décor sector. At the same time, to increase sales and create an international reputation, the offerer would like to partner with interior designers, shops, or hotels/spas/resorts, companies in home decor or gift design or tableware field who are looking for eco-sustainable and exclusive design products.
