Bottega Intreccio’s project was born by the desire of a production district renowned for its interweaving expertise, to preserve its know-how and hand on its cultural heritage to young generations of “weavers”. Thus Carteca was born in 2014 (motto of Master Mauro Corradini, that in dialect means “press and join”, used to exalt the laboriousness of skilled work): the weaving school

that combines the multi-decade experience of master artisans and the ambition and energy of young apprentices. A strong network that offers know-how to the territory, handed on for centuries and developed from generation to generation.

Mogliano district has always been renowned for the intertwining craftsmanship skills that the master artisans were able to combine with other production sectors and adapt to the use of diverse materials, from natural traditional ones like reed and wicker, to the very colourful synthetic cords, leather and metals. Thus the technique changes, transforms itself and develops individual skills of each single store.

Mogliano district became an experimentation centre related to famous brands that were able to conceive successful ideas and interweaving works with our artisans, which became renowned symbol of some maisons at international level.

A territory inclined to excellence that wished to offer to the public, through the school, a know-how that only a few skilful weavers still preserve. A tradition that carries on with pride and that creates new opportunities for young generations through Carteca school. Collective lessons, apprenticeships at artisans’ shops, cultural meetings, collaborations with designers and universities: all of the above is our school and the basis of Bottega Intreccio’s entrepreneurial adventure.
