La Congrega

Valeria David has been working in the field of textiles for almost 35 years. After transforming her vintage shop into a workshop, she began to dedicate her time, with knowledge and passion, to creating fabrics for decor: curtains, tablecloths, tapestries, pillows and bedspreads, second hand makeovers, in other words, created by recovering old pieces and reinterpreting them with taste and expertise. Embroidery, lace and fabrics are reused as precious details and inserts, harmonized with the background fabric. The workshop is also one of the few in Italy that is dedicated to the delicate business of textile restoration.
