your NEW summer bag…
TIMELESS ACCESSORIES BASED ON PRINCIPLE OF LOVE AND RESPECT FOR CRAFTMANSHIP. EACH PIECE IS REALIZED BY HAND, ONE BY ONE, RESCUING TRADITIONAL PROCESSES, TO FINALLY BE TURNED INTO ONE OF A KIND FASHION ACCESSORY IN ITALY.
Alienina is born in 2008 with the aim of inspiring people to discover that items can have an extra life and new functions, from an Italian designer: Eliana Venier. The philosophy of the project is giving a new function and aesthetic value to the everyday object and extending their lifespan.
The materials used for alienina jewellery are sailing and mountain climbing cords, cotton wicks for oil lamps, resin commonly used in car parts, fabric and straps used for blinds. The 90% of the materials are production waste, washable and non-toxic.
The designer is constantly looking for production scraps in all corners of the world, the ones that she falls in love with inspire her to creative experiments. The materials are what inspires the forms that are realized as the end result. That way the creative process is absolutely free and always brings the unexpected.
Each piece is hand-made and thus unique. Although each model may come in large quantities, there are no two identical pieces among them.
The techniques are inspired by old traditional crafts, which the designer interprets the contemporary way. Her approach gives us a fresh point of view regarding the limits of jewelry, art and design. The trend is creating statement tribal and nautical inspired pieces.
Inspiration comes from architecture and at the same time from the natural environment: Alienina collection is composed by soft and tactile pieces, they are architectures to wear with an organic touch.
