Fine fabrics Zenobia
In 1995 Silvia travels to India and is impressed by the craftsmanship and the richness of the colours of Indian fabrics. This is how Zenobia was born, a style that embraces both the Indian culture and Italian sartorial tradition.
Indian fabrics and fully Italian artisanal technique: it is thanks to the encounter of these two souls that clothes, coats, hand-painted wool stoles, pashminas, shirts and a range of proposals of great personality are born. A valuable address for those who do not like monotony. Secular techniques are now mixed with Italian workmanship and more modern fabrics, often recycled. Sahri, Suzani, Gudri, hand-painted wool stoles and pashminas are reinvented, marrying a western and contemporary taste. Coatings are also created for pieces of furniture, such as old armchairs and sofas, which are completely transformed.
