5 Sustainability is good.
challenge the status quo. consider the impact on the environment and people.
Ascoli works exclusively with small workshops in Italy, trusting the highly-specialised artisans who have known the Ascoli family for years.
The quality of design and work shown in something made by hand; artistry:
Their rapport is based on a shared passion for a century of individual heritage, and the desire to defend a rare set of skills. Whilst the designers rely on this craft to make their visions a reality, they simultaneously reinvigorate it by challenging the artisans to create something new.
With each visit to the workshop, the designers reconnect with the craft and are reminded of their love for the leather itself. In fact, one of Sofia’s fondest memories is of walking through the factory as a child: greeted by the sound of rhythmically clicking sewing machines, and enveloped by the rich smell of leather.
Such nuances are emphasized by the craft in each piece: for those who appreciate not only the look of the leather but the feel and even the scent.
