ARTS AND CRAFTS

THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, A PERIOD OF TRANSFORMATION AND REVOLUTION, HAS BEEN CHARACTERIZED BY DIFFERENT ARTISTIC AND CULTURAL MOVEMENTS THAT LEFT AN INDELIBLE MARK IN OUR SOCIETY.

The Art and Crafts was one of these movement – today alive more than ever.

This artistic movement, distinguished by the decorative taste, cultured and refined, was founded by William Morris, whose main purpose was the exploitation of the decorative arts extolling crafts.

Fashion and design relive the past with the shapes and colors that characterized the last century, through elaborate fabrics, lace and floral patterns.
