Bottega Intreccio is an Italian story. Of a territory that specializes in one area of know-how, of rural knowledge that is transformed into business, of objects and traditions that are renewed through contemporary languages of an entrepreneurial approach guided by design.
Bottega Intreccio was founded in 2014 in Mogliano, in the Marches, but its roots lie in the hands of Giuseppe Maurizi, one of the most senior craftsmen. Thanks to him, in the 1960’s the art of weaving usually applied to baskets and bags began to be used in garden furniture being complemented by rattan and bamboo. Giuseppe Maurizi and three other artisans (Alfredo Astolfi, Mauro Corradini, Tonino Nardi), the founders of the Carteca Scuola Intreccio (2014), can be credited with the rebirth of interest in this technique, putting a new generations into close contact with expert craftsmen and restoring a set of skills to Mogliano that have been running the risk of being lost forever.
Bottega Intreccio is an atelier which is grounded within in the territory. It relies on the experience of local craft workshops and on synergies with neighbouring production districts, such as the upholstery district of the nearby Tolentino zone. Thanks to direct ties with the school, the firm acts as a catalyst of knowledge and experimentation for new weavers.
Since 2019 the studio angeletti ruzza has conducted the art direction of the brand, with the aim of revealing the timely appeal of material like rattan and wicker in domestic interiors, as well as the poetry intrinsic to this ancient art. Involving designers with a recognizable stylistic signature and an extensive awareness of the materials, the studio sets out to mix crafts and design, poetry and concrete efficacy. Bottega Intreccio makes its debut with an eclectic collection that expresses harmony precisely in this combination of an archaic material and its precious craftsmanship, based on the knowledge derived from artistry.
