Support the beauty of nature and the elegance of the italian fabrics.

Silk, cotton and linen are so much precious and unique fabrics to give strength and personality to the bouquets of your brides: there is nothing more beautiful than the movement given to your flowers by the fabric of a ribbon. All the ribbons are colored by natural dyes, that means dyed with plants, mediterranean berries and roots. They come from Italy and, in particular, from the Como Lake, one of the most magical and romantic lakes.

Give to your bouquets the refinement of a unique and not common decorative motif.​

Differently from what happens in the industrial dye, my ribbons are perfectly imperfect, because they are created by nature. Differently from ribbons that comes from preprint rolls or chemically dyed, mine are unique and diversified products.

Features: our silk satin is soft, 100% italian, smooth and shiny on one side, and mat on the other, where it shows a delicate orange peel appearance. Its surface is shining and exalts all the features of the silk. The most important characteristic of our crepe satin ribbon, dyed with plants, is the shininess it gives out and its fluidity. The crepe satin hand-dyed with plants absorbs color well to produce vibrant chromatic variations.

Tips of matching: silk chiffon ribbons.

Spool: over 2 meters long ribbons are wound on hand-crafted wooden spools. They are made of fir wood and patiently hand-worked trough a lathe. Then, they are saturated of natural colorants and beeswax, without chemical elements or mordant.

Features: our silk chiffon is a soft and transparent fabric, very light for nature. It shows a faint wrinkle that gives to the ribbon a great elegance and a very intense personality. It would be fine using more than a ribbon or, if it’s just one, draping or combining it with heavier and thicker ones.

Tips of matching: silk chiffon.

Amazingly beautiful cotton ribbon. Lousine ribbon is so smooth, rich and delicate. I am in love.

Federica Beni | wedding planner and designer

Beauty never ends! I'm in love with textures and unique colours which guarantee the uniqueness and the beauty I'm always looking for my projects, that is why Sara's ribbons and fabrics are absolutely what I would suggest.

Cristina Firotto | wedding designer and Madlen Ceramic artisan

Fati Amor fabrics are truly wonderful and authentic. The raw materials are carefully chosen, you feel the quality to the touch and the shades are fabulous, made with natural colour, for this so unique and precious in their imperfection. I used both ribbons and fabrics for an arrangement together with my ceramics, chiffon and gauze for bouquet and set props, the crinkle as a backdrop and as a runner for a table setting, together with the linen napkins. I was really stuck by the naturalness and delicacy of the colours, and I appreciate the careful refinement. I recommend them to all experts of beauty and craft lovers

If your concept of beauty is controlled, consistent and impeccable, FatiAmor doesn’t suit you. This project is based on the tension to a sustainable lifestyle and the celebration of the generosity of the perfectly imperfect nature. If you share this attitude of wonder and gratitude to nature, you won’t be
disappointed.

My ribbons and my fabrics, colored by plants, works in a perfect harmony with each other. I love combining a simpler fiber like linen or cotton with one more precious like italian silk for a movement that it creates; it gives to the bouquet personality and delicacy at the same time.
The fibers colored by natural dyeing have subtle and nice variations and give to the ribbons complementary colors depending on the fabric: more vivid and intense on silk (because of animal fiber, it doesn’t need the long process of mordanting), deeper on linen and cotton, that need to be
worked longer.
The match and the contrast of so different ribbons add to the whole thing a fabulous grace.

Sometimes a tone of a fiber dyed with plants takes many days to reach its full potential; sometimes I reach unpredictable results, apparently “mistakes”, that add beauty to the result. For this reason, I directly match the ribbons and I propose them after an exposition to the light and a long observation. So, they aren’t reproducible, because the process of crafting is never completely regulable. In the package I propose you I’ll find combined an organic and tactile ribbon made of linen or cotton with one made of the most precious silk, coming from the silk factories of Como Lake. It is the best match between different elements, that I personally take care of to offer you an unique product of the highest quality.

The ribbons made of satin, organza, chiffon, georgette and charmeuse of FatiAmor are washable and reusable for your important occasions; they keep the style and the softness of the silk produced in Italy, on the shores of Como Lake.

The wooden ribbon spools that you will have in your hands are handcrafted by an artisan through a lathe; they are imperfect and different one another, made of fir wood or recycled and processed with beeswax.

My ribbons are hand-dyed with extracts from walnut husk, ivy, fruit, mediterranean roots and berries, picked in their balsamic period from which FatiAmor organic pigments arise. The color, hold by the fabric in a delicate and changing way, takes tones and shades that make the ribbon unique, thought for and devoted to a unique person and for a special occasion.

The technique of the organic dyeing has a millenarian history; it dates back from antiquity. I like natural dyeing with plants because it is absolutely imperfect and unpredictable: every extract I use is unique, depending on the site of the plant, on the light received, on the land that nourished it.

To prepare pigments I use extracts, leaves and roots of plants in their balsamic period. I macerate a color, see it changing, breathe intense scents while cooking, sow the seeds, pick leaves and fruit learning to know them. I observe and wait with trust, it is a slow and satisfying process. In fact, the results are perfectly imperfect; beautiful like the creative nature, that is always more imaginative than us. I’m enthusiastic to be a first witness of the birth of these unique creations, authentic pieces of art and gifts of nature. This patience and this “amor fati” (love for fate) are my favorite aspects of the work.

beauty inspired by nature for a sustainable lifestyle

FATIAMOR is a project of craft and objects with a story to tell, born from my love for simple and functioning things, from the observation of nature and from my interest in quality products made in Italy. Both objects and people have a unique story to tell. Everything that has got a shape can be transformed in something to use again: always new objects, full of stories and of their traces.

SARA LOU

Iʼm a designer, a mother, a wife and a lover of nature. I live my dreams in the heart of the region of the most beautiful lakes of Italy, near Milan.

This space represents the summary of my experiences as event stylist and great enthusiastic of nature. Moreover, it represents the summary of an attitude of solidarity towards what is imperfect. In things as in the people there are imperfections and weaknesses that can become a great opportunity of beauty.
