Cotton and Books

Giovanna was born with a great passion and her great passion "has made" her job: the art of sewing.

From design to production, Giovanna takes care of everything by creating beautiful products for women and children, with sophisticated fabrics. Giovanna also creates quiet books for the little ones.

Quiet Book, activity book, busy book: these are terms that are often used indistinctly to indicate a particular type of books that, in the literal translation, should be "Books of calm" or "Books of stillness". The quiet books are small tactile books, generally made of fabric or other soft material (often felt), used to let the younger children experiment with a series of manual activities and sensorial stimuli. Often they represent the first books that a child is to leaf through, intrigued by shapes and colors, besides that from the discovery of materials to touch. Quiet books are usually made of recycled materials, such as pieces of cloth, felt cuttings, wool, velcro, ribbons and buttons.

In Italy, there is still great value in manual work, linked to personal creativity, a great passion and a high technical and artistic expertise. Even in the city, where the figure of the artisan seemed to have lost its importance, it is now regaining its just relevance. The metropolitan artisan of today is a figure who has been able to bind to design, new trends and new tastes, bringing his irreplaceable know-how to the changes that have accompanied us through the years.
