At San Patrignano carpentry we don’t have automatic machines or much space. However, we love wood, creativity and people who want to change their life and the world in general. The carpentry is a story of genuine obstinacy, of making things by hand and making them well, to the smallest detail. A dream that is in no way impossible. On the contrary, we love trees, recovering wood and rehabilitating people.
Creativity, technique and experimentation have attracted and fascinated even great designers. Arts and crafts that slowly form and transmit the value of “doing good” to the young residents that, with great humility and pride are taking their lives back.DOWNLOAD THE CATALOG
“Waste; things to throw away, that are no longer any use. That’s how Tommy feels. Like something that’s been used and played its role.
Then one day, someone takes him to the carpentry and tells him to look. Old, worn out pieces of wood that were once wine barrels are given an unusual treatment. They are no longer marginal, but the central focus. Carpenters are so dedicated and committed to giving them a new form and new use.
At that precise moment, Tommy makes a decision. He’s going to become a carpenter. For a simple reason; sanding and transforming material saved from the scrapheap is a consolation and confirmation; the consolation and confirmation that there’s always a second chance.”DOWNLOAD BROCHURE
It is the lure for all those who love wood and handmade things that leads them back to us, to working with raw materials, to shape, to form, to creating objects that express our dreams or more simply to items that are useful in everyday life, like tables, chairs or chopping boards, things that accompany us almost every day of our life.
