The Artisans

    The Artisans

    The artisans of Florence are, and always have been, the heart and soul of the city.  They descended from the Middle Ages and flourished during the Renaissance, when Florence was renowned as Europe’s center of fine art.

    The artisans were crucial in the development of trade and commerce for the city, and their authentic culture remains to this very day.  Based on centuries-old traditions and techniques, each craft has been handed down within families for generations. The craftsmanship of the wonderful Florentine artisans can be experienced in all of our Splendor of Florence products.The joy of creating with one’s hands is slowly disappearing from our midst.  

    At Splendor of Florence it is our mission – and our passion – to inspire people to discover the importance of continuity and tradition as they move toward the future.  The focus on the SOF brand has always been on the famous artisans of Florence. The goal is to demonstrate that modern technology need not be a substitute for creating beautiful products inspired by the past but crafted in the present.

     

    The New Direction
    My love of Florence is pretty obvious to anyone who knows me.  That is why I have decided to work with the local artisans in creating a line of soap and home fragrance products that live up to the splendor of the city and will bring a little bit of Florence into your home.
