Arti e Mestieri, a story of challenge and design
In the beginning it were the walking gloves.
From that accessory, sophisticated and elegant, up to the current production of leather clothing it was neither simple nor obvious.
But it`s been a natural step for Pietro Vismara, who in 1972 set up his own business, after absorbing for years the art of tayloring and making leather clothes.
Arti e Mestieri, the current craft company based in Lecco, was opened in those tumultuous and pioneering years (in 1975 to be precise), directly inspired by the Art and Craft Movement, precursor of modern design and raised in opposition to the industrial industrial, as the carrier of the centrality and human enhancement in the creative and production process, in the name of an Italian identity that still dictates the fashion line around the world.
And that Made in Italy, as a creative and constructive excellence, has made the Arti e Mestieri products immediately appreciated and requested throughout Italy and the world.
The precise choice of keeping the artisans` size and organization, the infinite care of product that follows this choice, the ability to tailor with the italic style led Arti e Mestieri to build collaboration with the most prestigious brands in international fashion and, at the same time, not to forget local and demanding customers, with directed services and unique and unrepeatable clothes.
A story that, therefore, it`s been running and it still runs on two tracks: Arti e Mestieri is a company that wants to look at the future, basing on solid roots that sink into a past that taste of experience and creative tension.
Arti e Mestieri works hides and transforms them into beauty for 40 years. Long experience that led to `Corporate levels of excellence in an art historical Made in Italy appreciated worldwide. From modeling to packaging, from cutting to cartellinatura, our team follows all stages of the production, taking care of every single product.
