Slow fashion

  • • Simone designed his own handloom
  • • He uses natural and eco-friendly fibres
  • • His patterns and motifs are geometrical

Curious and talented, after experimenting with various crafts and restoration, Simone Falli fell for weaving. Born in Tuscany in 1988, he has chosen to live in Certaldo, in the countryside nearby to Florence where he founded his atelier, Ozio - Piccolo Studio Tessile. Simone designed and built his own personal wooden handloom, to create the geometrical patterns of his fabrics, using only natural fibres such as cotton and linen, soft Merino and light Alpaca wools. Simone’s aesthetic research and technical experimentation are deeply intertwined with his ethical choice to follow an environmentally sustainable life and his love of nature. In his workshop, he produces fashion accessories, foulards, scarves, handbags, book covers and fabrics.

Filare

This scarf is handwoven from Merino wool following a traditional technique of weaving tweed. Woven on a self-made wooden loom, the scarf is very soft and warm. The colours of the yarns used, black in the warp and ochre yellow in the weft, highlight the geometric pattern of the fabric. Its rectangular shape allows it to be worn both on the shoulders like a shawl, and around the neck like a scarf.
