ANIMAdVERTE– a name of latin origin, meaning “turn your mind, observe”. The Italian craftmanship heritage and sustainability are enhanced by a contemporary design, through which form, material and functionality are mixed together to create bags and accessories, practical and original even in their simplicity.
From the research of natural or recycled materials, up to the study of unconventional packaging, every detail is designed to make every product versatile and durable, to extend their life cycle and to promote sustainable fashion.
Unconventional three-dimensional shapes becoming bi-dimensional through the use of raw cuts and emphasized seams, that define geometries and make the bags transformable with no need for any reinforcement or support. Funny bags that can be worn in different ways and folded in their flat packaging.
Basic shapes, beyond fashion trends, reinterpreted by means of an handmade pattern of interlocked geometric modules. This peculiar craftwork allows not only to fulfill the criteria of “zero waste” production, taking care of the environment, but also to give to each bag the value of uniqueness, through the combination of the always different colour shades of the vegetable tanned leather.
The collections are realized with vegetable tanned leather certified by the Genuine Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium. From the most ancient techniques of leather tanning, the vegetable process is based on the use of tannins from trees, on modern technologies and on the slow passing of time, in total respect of man and the environment. Vegetable tanned leather absorbs the traces of our life and matures without ruining. It reveals the signs of time and use as the most personal expression of naturalness and truth, making each bag a unique piece.
