Discover the VELVET = hair fabric

The hair is what marks the velvet from the other fabrics.

Velvet is the fabric which, more than the others, with is soft touch, brushes our senses with intensity.

The unified velvet (also called smooth or cut) contemporary production is achieved with the double piece technique and the obtained velvets are then submitted to different finishing treatments.

For example, a lot of velvets produced on double piece looms are first dyed in piece and then finished with special ravelling, trimming and polishing machines in order to achieve a perfectly uniform hair, the typical softness to the touch and brightness.

l’Opificio Interior Fragrance: the uniqueness of a scent

l’Opificio and Tonatto Profumi, two torinese brands of excellence, join together for an exclusive perfume

Metaphor of excellence and liberty, only few things are able to touch the human soul and senses like a perfume. As a scent is exactly that: a subliminal language which overcomes any rule and rationality to address directly the emotional mind, evoking memories, dreams and emotions that are deeply rooted in each of us, that belong only to us and are grounded with our most inner matrix.

Though as nowadays the experience of beauty goes beyond any limit among different codex, l’Opificio is very proud to present Opificio Interior Fragrance, a scent exclusively designed by Tonatto Profumi, famous torinese maison, known all over the world to have create the fragrances for famous international jet set as Queen Elisabeth of England and Carolina di Monaco.

Famous for having given birth again to lost scents alike l’Acqua Siriana of the 1century a.C. or Cleopatra perfume-, which has been re-created thanks to the study of antique papyrus – in her Turin and Rome olfactory galleries, Tonatto, has combined modernity with tradition, conceiving an experience that allows to overcome specific artistic forms.

The choice of a well renowned laboratory, which has the same care for the scent as l’Opificio for its textile creations, has allowed to create a fragrance which interprets at best the wonderful feeling of a perfect textile, the endearing magic of a beautiful velvet, of a dear memory or a special unique moment.

The result of the collaboration of Paola and Barbara Bertoldo with Daniela Tonatto is l’ Opificio Interior Fragrance, a versatile fragrance based on exclusive and precious natural essence, that can be used directly on the textiles, as it respect their preciousness, and also be worn daily on the skin.

Opificio Interior Fragrance is proposed in two versions – shanghai and spray – 200 and 250ml. It has a warm thus reassuring persistent aroma, a contemporary interpretation though timeless.
