Craste

Reinterpretation, in a unique, catchy and totally customizable key, of the Apulian prickly pear. Born by chance, grows by the enormous word of mouth that is stirred up, evolves, constantly attentive to market needs. Its use ranges at 360 degrees, from good luck charm to wedding favors, to an element of rupture in any environment in which it is placed, to a corporate complement of furniture, up to reach sculptor measures. Customizable fabrics and vases, craste stands out in the panorama of “craftsmanship”, for uniqueness and sophistication, as well as for the harmony and balance of the structure. It brings with it a story of female rebirth from domestic violence, the creator Raffaella Marangella with her brand morally supports all women victims of violence, stating loudly that rebirth is possible and necessary. No one can afford to cancel women, to harass and beat them. So, like the prickly pear that resists the bad weather, women must resist and rebel against those who want to break their souls. Craste operates online throughout Italy and abroad, through social channels. Many sizes, many shapes, many fabrics, many vases, for all pockets and for all needs.

Evoluzione Naturale

Evoluzione Naturale (Natural Evolution) is a project that, by photographing reality, aims to communicate and bring closer to a wide audience the theme of “change”, which in all its meanings is today fundamental for mankind, its well-being and survival.
At a time when the challenge of climate change and its many implications for daily life in every part of the world is on the agenda, in order to avoid paying a heavy price in the not too distant future, the only way forward for mankind is the rediscovery of that harmony between himself and nature, the search for an indispensable sustainability for and on the Earth.
Silently, this rediscovery has already begun and man, in a natural evolution, is adopting those measures which, from the primary sector to the tertiary sector, passing through industry, represent a readaptation of ancient knowledge and methods to bring the Earth back to the centre of man’s true life.
This is the starting point for the annual “Evoluzione Naturale – La Terra al centro della vera vita dell’uomo” (“Natural Evolution – The Earth at the centre of man’s true life”) held in Grottaglie (Puglia) in January. Designed for professionals and the general public, the event features a rich programme of activities focusing on artisanal wine production, a reality that is attracting increasing interest but is still little known.
