Feel away from it all, while finding leisurely comfort wherever you are.
Damiano Collection is an artisan made loungewear and accessories brand that puts comfort and self-care on the priority list for modern women. Inspired by a Mediterranean way of life, easy silhouettes are hand-cut from natural washed silks to cultivate a wardrobe that effortlessly flows from work to lounge to sleep. The collection provides a chance to escape habitual stress and the demands of daily life in garments designed for pure relaxation.
The entire process from design to end product is highly intimate and hands-on, resulting in a truly genuine product. I love the feeling of wearing something that is not a mystery. To be able to tell the story of where an item has traveled and to know who facilitated that voyage is incredibly special. Through this evolving collection, I want to give my customers full disclosure and honesty about the how, what and whom of production. This knowledge creates an opportunity to make a more meaningful purchase.
- Alexandra Damiano [Founder + Designer]
Damiano Collection® revolves on an organic design cycle. I add new styles piece by piece throughout the year, each of them designed to complement the motions of daily life. The three main principles that guide my design practice are ease, style, and the feeling of relaxation.
NATURALLY ARTISAN MADE
I source the finest quality silks from small family-run suppliers based in the U.S., that have connections with the best heritage mills in India and China.
The fabrics I use never contain chemically derived synthetic fibers such as polyester, rayon, or spandex due to the unsustainable and hazardous production processes that include the use of petroleum solvents and PET based polymers. Natural silk fibers are derived from earthly elements and are known to improve the wellness and vibrance of the skin by perfectly regulating body temperature and absorbing excess oils and toxins from the skin.
Production is done completely by hand, one piece at a time. In a private studio, I personally hand cut and sew many of the products with the help of my network of independent seam artisans. I believe in freedom of employment, and the power of self-employment. Over the years I have been lucky to meet a diverse group of individuals with the passion for making.
Artisan Made is an extremely personal method of production. This means that one person expertly crafted your chosen item from start to finish, never leaving it to sit within a crumpled pile in a factory. Supporting artisan made means you are directly supporting an individual, not a corporation.
We believe that simplicity is the best policy when it comes to packaging. Damiano Collection employs a minimalist approach to packaging and product labeling. Recycled paper and biodegradable materials are the base for our wrapping and shipping supplies. You won't find excessive plastic pouches or shrink rapping. We work with a local family owned printing business to acquire our specialty tissue paper from their small end-rolls.
