Value to time and ideas. The importance of know-how, research and time
Trakatan: craft processes and essential design. Passion, creativity and research. Trakatan believes in hands and moves away from industrial processes, with no rush, attributing value to time. Each collection is a creative journey, from an idea to a sign, a drawing, a print on fabric or a leather accessory. An intentionally unexpected process, treating each item like a sculpture, manipulated to make it different from all others, unique. Handles become shoulder straps, bags become backpacks, shapes are versatile and each item can be personalised. Craftsmanlike care for detail and design freshness; each shape achieves harmony through this synergy.

Q&A with Andrea Boffetta
Your town. And three words to describe it.
Torino: unfortunately, thank the lord, neh.
Three words to describe your projects.
Heart, head, unforgettableness.
Fluorescent yellow with purple dots.
Rigatoni with tognazzi sauce or dirty socks after a mountain trip.
Antique, modern or contemporary?
All three, no?!
The most precious item you own?
Where is design going?
Where I don’t know. In my opinion, it should go towards sustainability.
Where are you going?
I trust my heart and follow it. So I don’t know where I’m going, my heart does.
Three words to describe Italy.
Heart, sun, ammmore!
If not in Italy, where?
"Always always impossible, till it’s created".
