With the mission to rekindle American craftsmanship, Raleigh, NC, natives Sarah and Victor Lytvinenko founded Raleigh Denim in 2007 in order to make the perfect pair of jeans.
This artisan denim brand redefines the tangible connection between product and process and aims to revive the rich textile industry that once called North Carolina home. Raleigh Denim strives to source most of its materials locally and works closely with Cone Mills in Greensboro, NC.
Every season, the Raleigh Denim “non- automated jeansmiths” handcraft limited runs on vintage sewing machines in their downtown Raleigh workshop. Each pair goes through a thorough inspection before being hand signed by Sarah and Victor. Leather patches adorn each pair with individually hand-stamped edition numbers. Raleigh’s classic aesthetic and tailored fit has become a staple of the modern American wardrobe.
OFFICINE GULLO - NEW PROJECT OCEAN BLUE
Blue; in the deep and bright shade of the Ocean, is the leading colour of a new project by Of cine Gullo implemented at a residence in Clearwater, Florida.
When we began to envisage the Of cine Gullo collection, we were sure that our creations would have features not typical in kitchens. As we drew our first designs and developed them at our workshop benches, we began talking about our equipment in unusual terms. As one would speak about automobiles, we spoke of ‘cooking machines’.
First, we dedicated a lot of care to the engine, creating a nely-tuned machine of exceptional precision. Its high-ef ciency burners satisfy the advanced requirements of a professional chef or gourmet home cook. Having accepted no comprises with our ‘cooking machine’, we then added equally advanced accessories: a powerful lava stone barbecue, a mirror-finish fry top,
a capacious steamer and professional pasta cooker.
Following the Florentine tradition so dear to us, bodywork of heavy steel is nished with fusions of hand-hammered burnished brass, burnished copper and heavy gauge silver plating. We had created what we had imagined: a kitchen designed for those who appreciate good food, enjoy the pleasure of living in a re ned space and who share our passion for well-made things. We had created the quintessential kitchen.
