Andrea Rossi, co-founder, vice president and chief commercial Officer, Marsèll, explained The SPIN OFF what are the aims of this brand.
Marsèll seeks to evolve consistently. We have always wanted to be a timeless brand, made of contemporary products that have an iconic matrix that can go beyond fashions and trends.
We like the idea of creating unique objects, we don't want to give birth to useless accessories, products that are all the same and have no soul.
We are a vertical company with a small network of local suppliers based in Italy's shoe manufacturing district Riviera del Brenta, basically we are an artisan reality distributed in selected stores around the world.
Actually we have always collaborated, maybe now we are communicating it better and some of these exercises are more noticeable. Collaboration means cooperating and working together, we like to develop new projects and create objects that make sense, producing in limited production batches so that they are almost collectibles. The choices are based on true, organic relationships that mature in variable ways.
We are increasingly careful in our choice of raw materials and try to make room for components using higher percentages of recycled material. But that is not the only choice we make. Our supply chain has a low environmental impact because the product is mainly made within our own workshop and by a few component makers who operate near to our headquarters. We take great care in maximizing resources and reduce waste, maniac-like. Being a small business, we cannot indulge in whims and mistakes in both development and production. We say that we adopt scientific choices because we are aware that they will be the only ones that will guarantee our future.
Marsèll has always worked with certified suppliers, since the European Union has rules to process materials that must be respected. Our natural inclination and sense of responsibility has always led us to try to reduce and cut down on waste, to seek beauty in authentic essentiality. We are a small business that cannot indulge in creative whims. Green is a megatrend that everyone is riding as a marketing tool even making false promises, we try to be faithful to consistent with respect to our values.
