Ligneah, Articulating Wood

Ligneah is an innovative company born from the shared desire of Marcello Antonelli, businessman and former director of textile companies, and his daughter Marta, fashion designer specialized in accessories, to propose an alternative material for traditional leather goods.

The drive to reduce the environmental impact of factory farming and the tanning industry, the ability to innovate, and an innate passion for fashion and design lent Marcello and Marta the impetus to develop an unexpected material that combines the traditional properties of wood and the suppleness of textiles.

The surprising treatment, created and patented by Marta and Marcello, consists of adhering fine sheets of wood, micro-engraved by laser, onto a textile support with an environmentally-friendly glue. Various types of wood – varnished, natural, or colored – benefit from the surprising capacities of articulation and suppleness.
