sartorial rest, custom comfort

-Live colour in a blanket, living our life in colour –

My goal is to provide an accessible, friendly, and professional service. Colour brings joy! And I want to help find your colour and enjoy it. Many people are unsure of how to use colour. Colour security is the key to creating a space where different shades coexist in harmony. My support of personalized proposals (patterns, textures, colour combinations), in a ‘traditional object’ but with a new versatility that dialogues with the furnishings. Multiple visions united by the passion for the craftsmanship of details: touches of style to dress the house, geometric and floral motifs in multiple colours, ‘pieces’ in the uniqueness and ductile ability of the shirt. They are products that bring with them an intrinsic beauty, a natural preciousness. The ‘Gallery Collection’ shows how my project can offer small solutions. I like working with noble materials (carded merino wool, wool + cashmere or cotton + cashmere, wool, and silk or with a mix of various materials with the addition of viscose). Without revolutionizing the furniture, you can think of inserting some objects-accessories, with blankets and cushions that add to or replace those present: new sensory experiences! A ‘guiding thread’ in the search for well-being for the mind and body through a useful object, linked to the pleasant sensation of indulging in ‘cuddles’ with colour and warmth! The value and awareness of rest. Free to live surrounded by some objects that make us feel good, in the name of a relaxed lifestyle. Objects for ‘Interior life’ with a refined Design, with dynamic colour contrasts that ‘light up’ the spaces, personalizing them. ‘Unique pieces’ that run through fashions. Products characterized by the charm of contemporary elegance, adapting naturally to the intimacy of the home. I like to create and create accessories that, through colour, have a positive impact!

Each product is the expression of traditional skills and technological craftsmanship. In general, the products are made in small quantities in order to offer the care of the “particular”. The materials used are carefully selected and tested in colour. Wool, like other natural fibers, is not fireproof.

Technical page: treatment, material, measures and description of the product realization.

Last note, very important: washing can be done in the washing machine with the type of program suitable for wool and delicate items or for dry cleaning.


‘I believe in wool’
Extra fine merino wool is a fabulous knit fabric, even in summer. All the extraordinary natural properties of the sheep veil make this yarn a real no-season. Merino wool: four Seasons. Even more than the other available varieties, it has the ability to adapt quickly to body temperature and therefore, if necessary, it can be warm or fresh. This type of wool is particularly sought because of its finesse, depending on the fact that the hair of a merino sheep is thinner than the coat of a common sheep. Generally, it is a fiber with a diameter of 20 microns. This particular feature, summed up with the other qualities of common wool, makes it a very valuable fiber.

Phase of the process

Analysis at every stage of the process: order of the yarns by the knitting company, use of the yarn for processing and construction of the product. The study in the realization of the design is carried out by the “programmer”, then follows the technician, who directs the program in measurement and times calculations, using electronic machines suitable for the ‘title’ (fineness) of the yarn and the type of structure of the knit fabric to be obtain. The ‘jacquard’ technique can be used for the various geometric designs from the double structure (multicolored reversible blanket) or the intarsia technique in which the yarn ceases according to the colour of the design (lighter effect). The value that characterizes the accessory is the hand finishing on each product. Finally, the washing process that defines how the cloth and the structure will appear. The passage of the various phases that constitute the “product” is determined by the mastery of industrial craftsmanship: passion, taste and great technical skills.

Notes
In order to realize a bespoke blanket or cushion order, material, colour and size will be necessary.
If you want to build a new exclusive design, there will be additional costs (from € 250 to € 350) for the realization of a technical program.
Delivery of custom made products in 4/5 weeks.

People are talking…

I have been using  Roberta Licini products for various interior projects, since end of 2016. I came across her products via an Italian friend and I fell in love with the quality and aesthetic taste. Many of my customers love wool and cashmere and it was interesting to be able to propose some items from ‘lr’ Roberta Licini collection, with current and original proposals in knitted designs, adaptable to the different demands of our work.

In the collections of Roberta Licini pave the research that is the basis of color combinations and original textures. Roberta products seen and touched in architectural spaces give character to the materials chosen.

Studio Anna Fileppo , Image and corporate communication

I saw Roberta Licini’s collection during a tea at home: beautiful products, with original designs…
I fell in love with them! It is a real “furnishing accessory’’ for that sense of warmth” … a sofa or bed with a blanket, acquires elegance and greater comfort.
It was difficult to choose because they are all one more beautiful than the other.Excellent quality choice of material with a warm, soft and functional feel.
An excellent product.

Daniela Torta, Private customer

I have known Roberta Licini’s collection of blankets and fell in love with them, rediscovering the elements that characterize my choices: a high quality product, 100% natural material, colorful and joyful.
I started by taking a blanket to put on the sofa: I liked the design and the colour that coordinated with the room … within a few days it became an element of contention by my 3 children. It was created, immediately, the habit of enjoying it in relax watching TV, wrapped and cuddled and obviously no one willing to give the blanket to the other! So, to avoid quarrels, I had to give up and take one for each, considering and satisfying their aesthetic taste. These blankets are simply wonderful, they know how to transmit warmth to the body and soul of those who love to surround themselves with authenticity and sophistication!

Alessandra Angelico, Friend

The Roberta Licini collection expresses the perfect balance between profound technical knowledge, great passion for art, innate good taste and excellence of the Italian craftmanship. Precious and natural yarns braid together to give life to bold graphism, sometimes archetypical , or floral compositions of pure feminine grace. Bauhaus and Art Nouveau echo quietly. Neutral sophisticated palettes or unusual harmonies of strong colours make any piece in the collection a real ‘decor piece’ able to enrich any architectural space. The seductiveness of the textures makes it an “object to love” and an object to relate to. Aesthetics and functionality here blend perfectly in a timeless harmony.
