The casagrande family lives in perugia, in the green and beautiful umbria. In 2013 daddy roberto discovers the passion for paper watermark and infects his sons francesco and chiara, and his sister assunta. In 2015 there is the birth of a small store in the historic center of the city, which allows casagrande's cards to be known to perugia and especially to tourists from all over italy and many other parts of the world. In 2019, the shop moved to the outskirts where it continues its production with always renewed enthusiasm.
The spirit of our creations:
Le nostre creazioni, interamente realizzate a mano usando strisce di carta secondo l’antica tecnica della filigrana di carta (nota anche come quilling) sono il frutto di un paziente e minuzioso lavoro.
Our creations, entirely handmade use paper stripes according to an ancient technique. The paper watermark (also known as quilling ) that is the result of patient and painstaking work. This is a doubly countercurrent area, somehow a back to the past: first and foremost because chat messages have almost completely supplanted the handwritten note, which has its intrinsic value and which somehow tells the story of the link that exists between the writer and the reader who can reread the card over time.
In secundisbecause in contravention of the modern laws of e-commerce , the timescales now increasingly reduced between the purchase of an asset and its arrival at its destination, we move in a field which by its very nature requires a longer waiting time, so that the person who is now reading is somehow called to a different “participation"; that starts from the customer the same of the ticket, thinking about the person who will receive it, his tastes, the colors he prefers and so on saying.
How many times have you had to wander through stores looking for something that could reallyto be satisfied, or you spent so much on a ;”mass"; product that told nothing about you.
In this case the ticket is so special that it is the gift itself, a small work of art, of craftsmanship, which can also be framed
Sometimes we rework images that the customer has found on the web (we are certainly not the only ones) always trying to enrich and modify them according to how much our imagination and ability suggest to us; sometimes the customer sends us a photo of his family or of the person who receives the ticket and we try to produce a nice portrait (the most important of which is the portrait of the person who receives the ticket). Part of the time they are “caricatures"; or ”stylizations";
Each ticket is designed to be and remain unique, each has a new element or a different disposition from the previous ones. . . And until you have received it or you will deliver it to the recipient, will not be published on our facebook page or on your instagram account!
Since each work is preceded by a project and carried out with the utmost care for detail and accuracy, the times of realization can vary and equally variable are the prices that are in proportion to the difficulty of the ticket and the time required for its completion.
