Neo’ started in Rome in 2007 when Rosanna Contadini, a former ceramic designer, discovers neoprene yarn in a hardware store while searching for new materials. Neoprene yarn is velvety, flexible, smooth and pleasant to touch. Products made with the yarn feel soft and silky, in complete contrast with its robust appearance and intense colors.
Sourcing the best Italian raw material, Neo’ manufactures high-end objects for the home and personal accessories, which are knitted, crocheted, woven, simply plaited, twisted or knotted. Design ideas come from many sources. Natural forms and everyday objects, found in travels around the world, inspire the shape and colors of each piece that fuses sophistication, durability and a modern aesthetic. Neo’ is a company with a philosophy that focuses on creating timeless, exclusive items that are easy to care for and made to last. Each product is entirely handmade in Italy, using traditional techniques and processes, relying completely on the skills of local artisans.
By choosing to use methods from the past, Neo’ has revived the beauty, quality and artistic talent of craftsmanship that many wish was evident in modern day products. Each piece is made with care to ensure its excellence and integrity. Slight size variations contribute to its beauty and uniqueness.
