Altheas is elusive and perennial, vivid and somber, figurative but also hissing and every inch of it is the setting for a different sequence. It is the tale of a dreamlike world, suspended between the shimmer of day and the rarefied night. The length of day lives in the opposite sides of the fabric and spends its hours among the intricate branches that host, in an endless flow, flowers, hummingbirds and dragonflies. It is a representation of a dream with its symbols, its magic, its hues and shades.

Chiarastella Cattana is a fabric designer based in Venice, Italy. Her work weaves traditional craftsmanship together with contemporary colours and patterns. By mixing different threads, she is able to give her creations a life and texture that are her signature.

Her career began in Milan, at a time when Made in Italy was stressing the importance of product quality. Through the experience in fashion, her knowledge of fabrics became the rule, and made her passion grow stronger. Full of movement, her designs are uniquely modern, bringing innovation to traditional weaving techniques.

The collection is the outcome of continuous research and careful attention to details. Linen, cotton, merino wool, cashmere, silk and other blends—we only use the finest Italian yarns to thoughtfully produce enduring textiles, respecting nature and its resources.
