About EROINA999: An all Italian story of female entrepreneurship that brings together rebellion and elegance and exhibits them without bounds. The quintessence of EROINA 999 originates from this philosophy. The result of two self-identifying Milanese women’s creativity: Gaia Venuti, a Tuscan of origin and former founder of Bahama Mama, Gaia Home Project and IANUA and Margherita Picardi, born in Venice, goldsmith and jewellery designer with vast experience of metal techniques and wax casting, creative director and founder of Mapi jewelry. The name, Eroina 999, is formed of the contrasting union of a word and a number: Eroina (heroin) and 999. Heroin - in the positive sense of the term - a sought-after and desired addiction. Eroina which above all describes the unique experience of every woman who is always her own protagonist, rebellious, indomitable, sometimes narcissistic but indisputably attractive. 999 as the highest purity of gold. Handcrafted jewelry, only ever made in Italy, characterized by the uniqueness of its cut, created by the precious hands of local artisans. The pieces are designed to be worn all together, for a seasonless look destined to last over time.
About AUGUST SANDGREN: August Sandgren (1893-1934) was a pioneer and renowned Danish bookbinder and box-maker, whose eponymous company, founded in 1920 and today owned by Pia Kirkeskov Andersen, still masters the art of traditional box making and manufacture top-quality leather products using traditional methods and processes. The storage objects designed in wood, leather and fabric are all terrific example of August Sandgren’s ongoing dedication to craftsmanship and the skill of combining functionality and aesthetics in a modest manner. Most of the company’s work is made in exclusive partnership with likeminded companies – sharing the same values, attitude and positioning.
