The story of the creation of the museum, a traditional center, dedicated to the specific products and full of artisanal skills, recalls a bazar for the designer. An identical concept, an area permanently dedicated to the commerce and consisting of a fairly varied set of workshops and open spaces in which laboratories and shops overlook. Also, several factories of Casalmaggiore, each specialized in a specific product, gathered together to create a system in a specific period in which Casalmaggiore represented an important center for the processing of costume jewelry, one of the most important in Italy. An area full of factories where everyone knew the traditional skills, managed to trade what they offered.
Thus, the designer, Sogand Nobahar, linked her memories of the grand bazaar of Tehran to the museum. The layered bracelets in the museum and the architecture of bazaar’s ceilings inspire BĀZĀR collection.
Taking into consideration the architecture of the bazaar and the bijou museum, a color similar to bricks and burnt earth was chosen. A shade that was not easy to reproduce with industrial colors. So it was decided to use natural black tea as a dye for the pieces. Tea, because it is the traditional bazaar drinks, and because the natural coloration excludes any risk of allergy and is a totally eco-sustainable process. Bāzār collection is produced in a limited edition of only 32 pieces in small & medium size, dedicated to the anniversary of the bijou museum established in 1986.
Each parure is accompanied by a numbered signed certificate and a 100% silk and paper packaging, handmade in Italy.
*Please note because of manual coloration a slight difference among the same colors is normal. We can not obtain the exact color so pieces considered one of a kind.
