MY NAME IS: Egle.
I LIVE: between Osignano (Sigirino, Switzerland) and Vercelli, in the North of Italy.
FROM WHEN? Ever.
DEVOURING PASSION: handcrafting.
FAVORITE ACTIVITY: crocheting, but NOT in the classic way.
I LOVE CREATING:
beautiful and useful things, comfortable to wear and easy to use, crafted with care and long-lasting. Above all, highly multicolored!
testing, and testing, and testing again every single item I put for sale in my Etsy shop. Giving shape to my ideas, I begin with (hand)making things, just to suit my everyday needs. This is the reason why my creations must be put to the proof, undergoing testing both for usability (I really dislike complications) and durability (how horrible are those things which are easy-to-damage!) and successfully meet the challenge. So I make a prototype and personally deal with the testing. If the prototype passes both tests, I begin producing the items related to it and put them into my shop. Absolutely OOAK.
WHY JUST UNIQUE PIECES?
I make my creations with great passion, dedicating a lot of time not only to handcrafting, but also to developing models and searching for best and suitable materials, to guarantee high quality and performance of final products. This slow and thoughtful process of elaboration gives to each one of my handicrafts a precise character of its own which makes it special, very special – that is, unique.
OTHER DEVOURING PASSIONS OF MINE:
little things vintage, knitting, reading books and comics, meeting with friends, walking in the country, the mountains, outdoor life, watching good movies with the love of my life, animals and nature, good cuisine and good wine, artisan beer. And chocolate, of course!
