Fratelli Rossetti is celebrating the reopening of its boutique in ABC Achrafieh. The craft techniques used to create Fratelli Rossetti footwear inspired the composition, design and materials in the new concept store.
The craft colouring and processing techniques used on the leather for the footwear are brought to mind by the old, faded teak flooring and the Turkish rugs, which are naturally dyed and washed out deliberately to bring out the original patterns.
The handmade decorations and resins combine with the brushed concrete wall in tobacco, dove grey and chestnut hues to produce highly varied surfaces and colours. They reflect the multiform nature of craft products, which may be perfectly made but will still be full of imperfect and irregular details that make them unique.
The chrome metals and the burnished brass used in the display backdrops give the boutique a sophisticated allure that is reminiscent of the superior, high-quality materials selected for Fratelli Rossetti’s craft products.
