Since 1977 G.T.DESIGN has been designing and producing objects with respect for people and environment. Deanna Comellini, designer and art director, and Michele Preti, embarked upon a route that would take them towards the idea of non-perfect design, therefore, authentic, real and emotional. Research of materials and textile structures led to the discovery of the previously unexpressed potential of this hazily-defined industry.
For G.T.DESIGN the textile element of the home, be it a rug or a furnishing accessory, becomes expressive and different, far removed from the standardization of industrialized productions. G.T.DESIGN has been an active member of Children Care & Fair, an international association dedicated to the protection of children's rights, since 1997.
Silk, linen, cotton, bamboo and cashmere are elements offered by nature whose pleasantness and comfort have been known for millenniums. Shuj collection is created from these natural raw materials: pure and gentle elements with a strong bond to tradition that are retrieved and reinvented while making them unique and contemporary.
The careful selection of top-quality, pure materials is then equaled in the manufacturing of the final product.
The Bedcare collection stems from a continous and accurate reasearch and development in balancing mixtures and manufacturing. The result is a fabric characterized by extreme lightness, softness and comfort.
For the Loungewear collection, Shuj has studied and developed a yarn whose lightness makes it almost impalpable, like a second skin for those who wear it.
The roots of the Suzusan label lie in the Japanese town of Arimatsu, where the Murase family, have been refining textiles with the traditional shibori technique for over 100 years.
Now in our fifth generation, we regard shibori as a cultural heritage that we must uphold with our endless passion and commitment to perfection. In order to stop the decline of the shibori craft that has been witnessed over the past five decades, we are attempting to give the technique a more contemporary relevance through the development of new and innovative procedures and modern creations.
