The VIETRI brand combines the richness of European culture with a sophisticated American spirit. Fashion forward, yet classic, Italian home accessories are designed to complement the good life and celebrate Italy and all that it encompasses -- a love of life, people, nature, and simply good living. VIETRI means romance, love, timeless design, the care and talent of many hands to create and share beauty.
VIETRI imports its distinct products from over 30 manufacturers from throughout Italy. Families of artisans handcraft many of VIETRI’s products with 3 or 4 generations of history, using centuries-old techniques. The subtle color from a paintbrush and the curving stroke of the artist’s hand are never repeated in quite the same way, making each VIETRI piece truly unique.
To fully master the handcrafted, handpainted process requires years of practice and a dedication to learning. An artisan may apprentice for 15 years or more before he or she becomes a turner or a painter. It may take 40 years to earn the title “maestro”, a term of great respect and the title that means this artisan is truly a master at his craft and is to be studied by the younger artisans in the company.
VIETRI seeks to preserve this valuable tradition by offering numerous collectibles and family heirlooms that will be passed down through generations.
