I’ve always loved drawing, planning, wandering with fantasy. And often I can not believe that this, today, is really my world. In my workshop in Murano, the Venetian island where I was born and raised, I produce bags and accessories for clients all over the world but it is right here, between channels, boats, bridges, and campielli, that I gave birth to the brand “Lauretta Vistosi Creations”.
I imagined it, wrote it, dreamed it and, in 2008, it became reality in a small shop in Venice, which a few months ago I turned into an on-line shop.
The unpredictable paths of life, in fact, lead me to live between Venice and the United States and the web gives me the extraordinary opportunity to make my work be known all over the world.
The graphic lines that decorate my creations go over stretches of cotton, linen, lace, wool, and cross their race with a murrina full of memories related to my past and my family. In these lines, I express the creativity that I began to cultivate when, as a young girl, I met Ettore Sottsass, Gae Aulenti, Angelo Mangiarotti or Eleonore Peduzzi Riva at my home.
These were the golden years of my family’s glassware, the Vistosi Glassware, which between the 1960s and 1970s made blown glass objects with the signature of the greatest designers of the moment. The lines and murrinas that give personality to my creations are the symbols of the story that led me to this small and wonderful world.
Bags, backpacks, beauty cases, travel bags and more. When I realize my accessories I think about who will wear them.
