ESSE2 Murano

From the great commitment of a family with a long tradition of glass masters behind it, the company ESSE2, manufacturer of Venetian pearls, was born in the 90s, which exploits its artistic sense and ability in glass processing. The technique used is the traditional one of "lume pearls", that is, wrapping the heated glass on copper rods and then enriched with 18K gold and silver leaves.

The ESSE2 company is always looking for innovative materials and original designs, taking care of its collections down to the smallest detail, without ever forgetting the purity of the glass and the precision of the details. From the commitment and creativity of every single component of ESSE2, products are born that find the consent of both traditional and more modern tastes. The union of a family as a guarantee of quality and professionalism, present for years on the national and international market.

Their team is made up of a large family: the master glassmaker Serena Francesco and the glassmaker Don Stefano along with Serena Carlotta and Piazzetta Serena.

In their words;

“I know that Chinese glass is in all the world, but for us is a cancer and a daily battle. All beads are handmade from me and my family likewise, bijoux (jewelry) assembly. For this reason, we are a part of the “Vetro Artistico® di Murano” brand n.065, that guarantees original products.” 

The “Vetro Artistico® Murano” trademark is a trademark of origin that certifies glass products made on the island of Murano, created to protect one of the most famous symbols of Made in Italy and guarantee the fruit of a millenary tradition.

Himalayan Weavers

Our Artisans are placed in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountain Range. They live and work in a small village called Masrana which is outside Mussoorie town. Spinning and Weaving of Wool is a traditional skill in this region and has been for many generations. This art is known and taught and passed on in order to retain the essence of this craftsmanship. Due to their location, our artisans are able to obtain completely natural resources for the coloring and dyeing process of wool. Unlike mass produced goods, each product has an immense amount of nature, culture and heritage attached to it. The concept of creating something so gentle and loving, like a baby blanket using this skill was particularly nurtured due to the attributes of the amount of love and care required in this form of artistry. 

These beautifully hand-woven wool blankets have been crafted using a blend of natural Himalayan wool and fine Merino wool. Hand-woven with both; hand-spun and mill-spun wool for extra softness and light-weightiness, these blankets are perfect to keep your little one cozy and warm. 

Mulberry silk hemming has been used as a border addition, in order to ensure no loose ends and to add to the aesthetic beauty and softness of each blanket. 

Dyed using natural resources, your baby’s blanket is completely chemical-free.

The quality of leather continues to enhance with time and usage. An investment definitely worth-while!

From our artisans;

"We do not feel the need to use chemical products to reduce costs. One of the main characteristics of the skin of vegetable tanning, is that its pores are left open, making the passage of time, create a beautiful personal patina on it. Thanks to this respectful process, the skin achieves extraordinary qualities unthinkable in chrome tanning. The process of our vegetable tanning leather is done in a traditional and purely artisanal way. Avoiding the use of heavy minerals for the tanning process is a much more environment- friendly method."
