Contrada degli Artigiani is a modern craft workshop specialising in joinery, restoration, and decoration – as well as textile design. Its products are all made to measure, according to the heritage of experience and wisdom of a long tradition of master craftspeople. Contrada degli Artigiani has gained a reputation from private as well as commercial clients, for producing high quality, bespoke solutions: whether individual pieces of furniture for a private home or fitting out an entire hotel or office. The surprising combination of rough and precious, ancient and modern materials is moulded through accurate execution and a time-honoured tradition of craftsmanship.
Established as a social cooperative in Como, Italy, Contrada degli Artigiani is committed to fostering young people’s development through supportive and structured mentorship, apprenticeship schemes and work experiences. As a centre of excellence it has been hugely successful at preventing school dropout and providing employment opportunities for young people facing personal, economic or social difficulties.
