    Swords, cups, coins and clubs - these are the traditional suits of Italian playing cards. They evoke the magic of long winter afternoons spent with grandparents. A deck of cards and endless challenges to another hand next to the cosy hearth. Playing cards, entertainment for the masses par excellence, are strongly linked to folklore and tradition in Italy. Bergamo, Bologna, Treviso and Naples, the list is long: each area of the country has its own version of the suits. Forty rectangles, each with its own image, that can mean defeat or victory. This is where we took inspiration for our "Carte" (cards) series of scarves.


    From the suit of cups in Bolognese playing cards comes Coppe, our scarf in silk twill. Since the 1500s, decks of playing cards have been called “Primiera Bolognese” to distinguish them from Bolognese tarot cards. The suit of cups, along with that of coins, belongs to the genre of suits known as "courts". Cups represents love, gaiety and joy. They contain water, a symbol of pleasure and happiness. This suit indicates deep passions and feelings.

    COPPE is a product in 100% silk twill, made and packaged in Italy.
