There are no designers at Pasotti. Creativity has always been a family affair but, contrary to what you might expect, it is not in the family’s DNA. Rather it arises from an inclination to collect inspiration from travels, experiences, encounters, objects, and anything else that resonates with people.
An enthusiasm that is transmitted to the company’s collaborators, artisans, and suppliers of raw materials, all selected for their skill, creativity, and product quality, according to stringent logics of Made in Italy production.
Nicola himself confirms that one of Pasotti’s mantras is, “if you get an idea that you think might be appealing, don’t hesitate, develop it and then let’s see what comes out”.
Thus, thanks to this propensity for expressive freedom, today we can enjoy skull-shaped handles, depictions of animals both real and fantastic, devils and Egyptian sarcophagi, as well as fabrics with floral decorations of all kinds, some designed by Ernesta herself more than 50 years ago.
A liberating and exciting chaos, which Pasotti manages to control by shaping it into a simple umbrella.
Unique and inimitable.
