THE CUT

A fancy, golden italian paper made from secret family techniques

“Much like Italian style, Italian paper is a bit over the top, but always ultraluxurious. This gilded sheet is made by Rossi 1931, a renowned Florentine company known for combining Renaissance influences with meticulous attention to detail. An ancient family technique creates that extra-vibrant-pool color, and bronze powder achieves a gleaming gold sheen. You could wrap an especially important gift in it, or use it to adorn the walls of your office“.

by Diana Tsui

Rossi designs inspire the creative work of Beata Krampikowski

This German artist, originally from Poland, studied at the Parsons School of Design in New York. Since 2004 she participates at exhibitions in northern Germany, where she also has her own exhibitions.

“My position as an artist is defined by the areas of tension between my creative works and the reactions of the observer. Occasionally.”

Beata Krampikowski artworks are decorated with authentic Rossi Italian paper known for its particular details and subtle nuances of “gold” powder (in the pictures: ref. TSC029 and CRT904).

Stationery Trand Magazine, 10 designers to watch in 2014.

“Welcome to our fourth annual roundup of Designers to Watch in 2014. It is never easy to come up with this list, and I think these 10 represent our most visually diverse group yet. What they all share, however, is the ability to hone their distinctive viewpoints into very special product ranges that manage to make large groups of consumers feel as if the product was made just for them, and is in fact speaking directly and only to them. Read on to see how our annual tensome approaches this difficult task with seamless flair”.  

 

Mattia Rossi

Aesthetic of the Line: Rooted in the tradition of Florentine Renaissance but open to new trends and technical innovations, Rossi 1931 has evolved from a small typographer to a modern factory producing, in addition to stationery, decorative papers, greeting cards, notebooks and journals, paper gift items and more. Traditional designs from the 15th and 16th centuries coexist with contemporary patterns.

Current Bestseller: Letterpress decorative papers introduced at the Paperworld Fair in Germany two years ago have since evolved into a full collection of papers, boxed stationery, monograms, journals, notepads and gifts. The success has been overwhelming and unexpected when we decided to try something different on our vintage letterpress machines, which hadn’t been used for many years.

Personal Favorite: Decorative papers, especially those with gold finish (see too the sample in this magazine).

Surprise Hit: Boxed soaps, not really part of our world of paper, were received incredibly well.

Surprise Hit

Iconic Selection: Fiorenza ,the traditional Florentine Stationery, is where it all started; the first collection was produced by my grandfather Antonio in the thirties.

Favorite Color: Blue in all its shades.

Current Design Obsession: Quality time, not simply time but time to dedicate to creativity without interruptions and intrusions and above all, without having to compromise between ideas and market needs.

Favorite Flower: Wisteria, it’s the flower of the villas on the hills that surround Florence and has such a vintage aura.

Favorite Indulgence: A Negroni drink at the seaside at sunset.

2011 Collections – What’s new.

An important business agreement was signed with the historical Tuscan company Cartiera Magnani 1404.

The products manufactured by Magnani, know worldwide for its extremely precious papers, will be distributed, starting immediately, exclusively by Rossi 1931, both in Italy and abroad.

In the Rossi 1931 collection for 2011 there will be a large selections of exquisite paper products, totally dedicated to the ancient Paper Mill from Pescia: deckled edge cards and envelopes in 100% cellulose produced on a cylinder mould machine.

New stylish packaging, superior quality and attention to every detail are guaranteed by Rossi 1931, for the most demanding customer.

AD 1404 Charta Italica collection

 

The Magnani paper mills date their origins back to the XV century, when the first settlers developed the mill along the banks of the Pescia river famous for it’s clear waters, an essential requirement for the production of paper.
By the 18th century, the Magnani mill had alredy started to export their papers all over the world. Among their customers were most Europe’s reigning families as well as the state mints of many countries that appreciated the quality of the security  paper produced at the mill on cylinder machines. Other notable customers have included Napoleon Bonaparte, who choose the mill to produce a special watermarked paper for the announcement of his wedding with Maria Luisa D’Austria. The original mould is still held at the mill. The mill was also a supplier of Crown family of Italy for some specific papers and very important documents and agreement shave been signed on their papers.
Today the mill still produces a limited production of hand made papers in the ancient mill called  “Le Carte”. During the 19th and 20th centuries, it was here that many artists such as De Chirico, Guttuso, Annigoni, Maccari, Bueno, Guarnieri, Morandi  and many others used to have their own paper produced as a sign of distinction.

Idea Toscana

It is with great pleasure that we present you our brand new line, Idea Toscana, totally inspired by and based upon what is probably the most precious product the land of Tuscany offers: the olive oil.
Idea Toscana is the result of the cooperation between Rossi 1931 and a Florentine cosmetics manufacturer of long tradition and fame: Tuscany Idea (Ludovico Martelli group).
The cosmetic products that belong to the Idea Toscana line are all made of pure Tuscan olive oil of the highest quality, what  we call “Prima Spremitura”, the first pressing of the olives witch generates the purest quality of oil.
This exclusively mediterranean tradition of using olive oil for cosmetic purposes goes back to the ancient Egyptians and Greeks; in Florence as far back as the 14th century soap factories and farmacies used olive oil for their products.
Rossi1931, rooted in Tuscany ever since its foundation in 1931 and whose Florentine designs go back to the times ofthe Renaissance, has created its high quality packing for this high quality, typically Tuscan cosmetic product and completed  the collection with stationery and gift items products such as stationery with (olive design) lined envelopes, perfumed paper, notepads, notebooks, pencils and more.
We truly hope that this genuinely Tuscan product will stir sweet memories of the Tuscan landscape with its olive trees, cypresses and vines in all those who’ve been to visitour beautiful region and that it will enable those who haven’t  toget a taste of Tuscany!

since 1931…

Rossi 1931 is a family owned company founded in 1931 by Antonio Rossi, the grandfather of Mattia and Taddeo.

Initially the production consisted of fine traditional florentine stationery, very popular with the American and British communities living in nearby Florence.

The proximity of Florence with its beauty, its art and its cosmopolitism has been of great significance for the development of the company.

Rooted in tradition but open to the world and to innovative ideas, the company has evolved into a modern factory producing, in addition to stationery, decorative papers, greetings cards, notebooks and journals, paper gift items and more.

Many designs have changed over the years, what has not changed is the high quality of all components and of the items themselves, the great care in the creation, production and packaging.

It is in our factory near Florence that the synthesis of creativity, artisan skills and technical ability becomes reality.

It goes without saying that every item is entirely made in Italy!
