The Chianti Shine brand is a registered mark, founded in 1999. We specialise in vintage furniture, remaking of upholstery and we produce a line of clothes, which for simplicity sake we like to call country chic.
Elena Benedetti — Since 2004, I have been running a small tailor's workshop in the heart of the Tuscan country side (in the outskirts of Siena). The crazy passion for textile and fabric as alive matter, the taste for vintage accessories, the creation of imaginary characters fully dressed with the best linens and the most innovative prints animate this corner of the Sienese countryside where we live and work.
"SO I START TO LOOK AROUND, TO LOOK FOR “THE TRAVELING COMPANIONS” OF THE MATERIALS I CHOOSE: SOME OLD BUTTONS FOUND IN MARKETS, THE DESIGN OF COUTURE MODEL, THE PHOTO OF A LANDSCAPE, A GREETING CARD"
Paolo Favilli — Curiosity for everyday objects, a taste for discovery, a love for popular traditions: the recovery of old furniture, accessories and industrial materials are other great passions that has led us bringing our products into interiors of homes, restaurants and shops all over Europe.
"MY SOURCE OF INSPIRATION COMES ALWAYS FROM THE MATERIAL: WHAT IS THIS FABRIC TALKING ABOUT? WHAT DOES IT EVOKE WITH ITS SOFTNESS? WHO WOULD WANT TO WEAR IT, WHAT LIGHT WOULD YOU LIKE TO TOUCH IT?"
We make bespoke dresses, wedding dresses and formal dresses. We start with an existing model - supplied by the customer or chosen from our archive of vintage models - or we design it to measure.
INTERIOR DESIGNWe design interior spaces for private homes, shops or restaurants.
PARTNERSHIP We collaborate with other brands of furniture, design and clothing to bring to market new products and fashion collections.
RESEARCH We are constantly engaged in looking for new ideas for our fabrics, garments, workmanship, accessories and furnishings.
