Not simple furnishing elements but pieces of history
We use the wood of centuries-old olive trees, without cutting them down, but using seasonal pruning waste. Each product is numbered and certified. Pruning is not commissioned by us but carried out by the supplying agricultural companies, only if necessary for the plant, and is verified by pruners in possession of professional qualifications recognized by official bodies.
We donate 4% of each sale to plant olive trees in Salento tormented by Xylella, supporting the Apulian association OlivaMi.

In 1948, a farmer dreamt of finding treasure on his land. The very next day, he started digging in the same exact spot predicted by the dream and sure enough he found something. The news of the finding circulated nation-wide and experts soon made their way to the farmer's land. They immediately knew that it was something of great importance.
The research and excavations that took place in the following years uncovered a long, practically intact, ancient wall dating back over 2000 years. These were later recognized as the walls of the ancient city of Gela, built by the tyrant Timoleone to defend the city from the Carthaginian siege.
This exceptional discovery is, to this day, still considered to be one-of-a-kind worldwide. Its a piece of Sicilian history that can literally be touched by hand. The Gela pen holder is inspired by this sophisticated expression of engineering. Minimal yet eye-catching, this desk accessory does not go unnoticed. The pen holder can contain up to 9 pens, an abstract representation of 9 soldiers who, standing close on the mighty walls of Gela, proudly defend their city.
