About the Dianora Salviati brand
The Salviati family, originally Florentine, was well-known for its patronage and its reputation in the banking sector and then in the textile trade. Dianora continues the legacy of her ancestors. She founded her company in Italy during the summer of 1998. Her first collection consisted of hand-woven scarves. The materials used were natural: cashmere, wool, linen, cotton and silk. She does not hesitate to play with materials, showing a genuine willingness to explore all existing possibilities. Dianora also collaborated with the designer Tomas Maier on his collection of scarves and sarongs. Using traditional handcraft methods, Salviati Dianora introduced a small but remarkable collection of bags for the day and the evening at its autumn / winter collection 2005/2006.
Born and raised in Italy, Dianora Salviati studied law and political science in Paris and Rome before becoming journalist writing papers on style and interior design. Her interest for textiles began early. She admires the work of her family. Jacopo Salviati is the founder of the company "Arte di Lana", or "Art of Wool". It was while she was travelling around the world that a trip to India made her want to start in the world of textiles. She created her own designs captivated by the materials and colours that blaze in India. On her return in 1998, she decided to found her own fashion home.
This "very chic" collection is composed of scarves hand-woven with natural materials such as cashmere, wool, linen, cotton and silk.

Timeless, elegant and exclusive, each piece reflects the character of the creator and her passion for craftsmanship, luxury and refinement.
