Lisa Contè
Made in Italy

Brand Journal

The journal was started in 1980 by my parents Giuseppe and Maela in Tuscany in our artisanal laboratory where we produce until this day every product by hand with maximum attention to details. They named a brand “Lisa Contè” as a reference to a woman they were designing for. The collections were classic and traditional but already then you could see a twist in mixing fabrics. The idea of mixing fabrics shortly became the DNA of our brand that
makes the Lisa Contè’s client different and more contemporary.

In early 2000s the brand journal has been taken over by us, myself Eriberto and my wife Chiharu and the new chapter begins: “Nature, Tech, Innovation and Sustainability”. We build on my parent’s heritage and Chiharu applies to the brand’s traditional yet unique
philosophy the contemporary Japanese aesthetic, mixing the original ideas from the past with new fashion technologies.

Our Sustainable Universe

Our atelier is surrounded by small forests situated in the Tuscan countryside. That is our foundation.

In recently, we often hear the word “Sustainability”, it became trendy but our own sustainable journey began a long time ago.

ENERGY
 

All of the energy needed at the factory is converted to private power generation using solar panels.

All the lights used in the factory are LED lights.

Solar energy is a renewable free source of energy that is sustainable and totally inexhaustible, unlike fossil fuels that are finite. It is also a non-polluting source of energy and it does not emit any greenhouse gases when producing electricity.

Our company is powered by 100% solar energy.

BYPRODUCT origins

In Lisa Conte's collection we use sheep moutons.

We re-examined the roots of this material as we wanted to know how and where it came from.

Our shearling is sourced from selected ethical factories where its treated as a by-product of a food industry.

PATCHWORK

We upcycle material offcuts into a new product. This way we can create by giving a new lease of life to production material remnants. We strongly believe in a zero waste approach and we apply it to every collection we make.
