1st COLLECTION: A VOYAGE TO MEKNES
The story of Madame de Blois


The first collection is freely inspired by the story of Madame de Blois, King Louis XIV’s favorite daughter, and her imagined connection to Moroccan culture. It arises from the encounter of the designers Maddalena Casadei, Maria Jeglinska and Julie Richoz with exceptional Moroccan ceramics and textile craftsmen.

In the scenario envisaged by
the designers, upon her arrival to Meknes, Madame de Blois, overwhelmed by the rich Moroccan cultural stimuli, first assumes a forma mentis dictated by the security of repetitions and grids. The collection reveals then a progressive alteration: more chaotic lines take precedence over regular forms and patterns, suggesting new images and reflecting a new approach in the dialogue with the artisanal tradition.
NEW DOMESTIC LANDSCAPES
A Moroccan Storytelling


Blankets, curtains, rugs, nightgowns, tableware and ceramics stemming from the fusion of modern vision, high-quality materials and time-tested techniques, are designed to enlighten contemporary living spaces, as an invitation to celebrate creativity. Each piece of fabric and ceramic is made with strong and clear patterns, simple shapes and proportions then sunk and dissipated in the charming irregularities of the artisanal work.

ONDA CALABRA

2st COLLECTION: ONDA CALABRA 
Exploring crafts in the south of Italy


It may be hard to believe, but the seed of the Mediterranean peninsula originated in one of the least known regions of Italy.  At least in name, the forefather of the country and the people of the “Boot” can be traced to the figure of the legendary king Italus in the sixth century B.C. TRAME has chosen Calabria as the territory of investigation and production for their second project. Their ongoing work aims to discover and involve craftsmen of this land, rough and restless but open to dialogue and exchange—modern and archaic at the same time, a place of friction and frontier, balancing on a knife-edge, but with a great deal to teach. 
The MASKS: 
Supernatural protection for the home
 

The first capsule collection developed on Calabrian soil emerges from their encounter with the potters of the town of Seminara and their unique tradition of apotropaic masks. With their deliberately frightening features, these ceramic masks were created to drive evil from homes, to dispel fears, hatred, gossip, bad energy, and more. The masks are finished in enormous wood-fired kilns, which adds an uncontrollable twist to the features and colors rendered by the artisan’s hands—the final touch in their fierce and imperfect beauty.
