Do you have a compost bin?
No, I don’t have a garden. But I’m careful with what I buy, so my composting starts with shopping.
I discovered FREITAG on a trip to Berlin. I usually come back with something special after each trip and that time, it was FREITAG. It's an interesting project run by interesting people.
What's Tonolo Selezioni?
A selection of objects that are designed to last a lifetime. They never need to be replaced – that's the criterion. If they’re good enough for me, then they’re good enough for my customers.
What kind of music do you listen to?
What’s your favorite thing in your store apart from FREITAG?
A pot made of cast iron from iittala. You can cook for a whole family with it. iittala may sound Italian but it’s actually a Finnish project from the fifties and sixties.
What sort of people buy and wear FREITAG in Venice?
All kinds of people, from every age group. The first customers were older ladies - that was ten years ago. F-ABRIC customers are more environmentally-aware than customers that buy the bags. The funny thing is that the older clientele are enthusiastic about the F-ABRIC materials because they heard about them from their grandmothers! They deserved to be catered to.
