Schola Testori is a high-quality bed and bath linen brand, made in Italy with fine fabrics of natural origin, very soft to the touch, such as linen, silk and cotton made from bamboo. The philosophy, whose name - Schola Testori - is an omen, is to establish a link of continuity with the ancient San Cristoforo School of Weaving in Venice.
Ivana Cicchelli, who has a long experience in the furnishing textile sector, with well-known British brands such as Laura Ashley, and Designers Guild, says:
"the goal is to establish a bridge between past and future, relaunching a millenary tradition that originates from Marco Polo's trips to China.
Our strengths are the obsessive search for natural materials and attention to detail.
The collections also speak to the touch; the precious materials we use are all very soft. We want to offer a protection feeling and the idea of being wrapped in a cocoon, like a silkworm. Home comfort has become of primary importance. Resting well is the foundation of our physical and emotional health.
We are not concerned only with touch, but also of the smell, with our line of aroma diffusers
for the environment and scented candles
, developed with -the nose- Maria Candida Gentile. She studied in Grasse in Provence, from 400 years the capital of perfumes. The intent is to offer a 160-degree sensory experience.
"The Whole productsion is garment dyed and has a softening silicone finish that guarantees a natural and smooth hand, like peach skin. Moreover, the cotton derived from bamboo provides a pleasant sensation of freshness. With the same attitude"
She concludes, "we also take care of the packaging, a pocket with an embroidered logo made with our textile scraps, closed by two mother-of-pearl buttons. Our motto is -We Think Luxury, We Think Green-. The choice of plain colours wants to highlight the tactile qualities of the production, avoiding the distraction of complicated patterns. The thickness of the feather padding ranges from 100g to 400g, protected by a layer of silk similar to a spider's web".
Schola Testori can boast the title of a producer of fine linen and exclusive sensory experiences.
