Collective – designed and hand printed in Italy
is a handicraft textile printing atelier
with a skilled team of designers, illustrators and craftsmen.
Every piece is hand-printed by Anna
on Lake Garda in Trentino.
We use the traditional silk-screen printing method
with a loom and water-based non-toxic inks.
The process involves intricate handwork
and the product is left to dry for several days.
In this way the colour sets naturally and will be resistant
even when washed in a washing machine.
Handcrafting makes each and every creation unique,
the fruit of an exclusive process.
Contact Collective – designed and hand printed in Italy

and for tailor-made creations.
MEET COLLECTIVE’s TEAM
Hi it’s Anna, a graphic designer and artisan from Italy. After spending almost ten years around I came back to my lake & mountain homeland to start my own business: a communication design & handicraft textile printing atelier. Designer and craftmens come over here in the workshop and work with me to find the right mix between studying and practice, research and prototype, computers and inks. I never forget the cities where I lived and where I built my own taste: Milan, Cardiff, New York and of course Arco, on Garda Lake.
