Undoubtedly, the craftsmanship and production quality of Italy has endured a rough ride in recent times. With the controversy raging over what constitutes “Made in Italy” and the resulting use of overseas laborers, fashion houses look to uphold their legacy and pedigree. Fendi publishes The Whispered Directory of Craftsmanship: A Contemporary Guide to the Italian Hand Making Ability, a book that pays homage to Italian heritage and craftsmanship and what it means to be Italian-made. Through the pages, you’ll find a directory of respectable Italian artisans and craftsmen along with informative write-ups. The book is available now via Fendi stores and select book stores.
