The collective of artisans HIC EST FABER celebrates contemporary craftsmanship and the creativity of talented hands that shape, stitch, sculpt, cut and fold. They create workshops that come to life once more and ancient arts that are rekindled. A network of contemporary artisans grounded in friendship, sharing motivation and inspiration.

For this first edition, the event will count with the presence of artisans from different areas of craftsmanship. A cobbler who crafts hand-made shoes – Bruno Shoemaker -, two sisters who produce refined ceramic jewellery – Jamais Sans Toi -, a potter who combines Oriental aesthetics and tradition with contemporary experimentation – Studio Delta Pottery – and, lastly, a leather goods workshop making unisex bags and accessories that showcase sleek, minimal designs – Trakatan. One simple rule: taking pleasure in a job well done to offer others unique products of authentic quality.

HIC EST FABER is a pop-up shop in the space in Via Tortona 20, part of the official Tortona Design District circuit, where design, fashion and culture mingle all year round. The shop is an opportunity to discover that being an artisan today is much more complex than the romantic idea of the little workshop where “everything is done by hand, like in days gone by”, and is a wonderful place to meet craftspeople who apply traditional methods with a contemporary slant and value human skills.

The temporary store offers the pleasure of choosing quality, in terms of design, function and craftsmanship. And also the chance to purchase a limited series of products, knowing where the materials come from, how they are treated and who has crafted them into the items on display.
