DEDAR – an acronym of design d’arredamento (furnishing design) – is deeply rooted in the traditional silk district of Como where it was founded in 1976, fruit of Elda and Nicola Fabrizio’s passion for the world of design and textiles. Ever since 1997, Caterina and Raffaele have worked alongside their parents in managing the company, sharing their same passionate enthusiasm but making their own particular contribution with a vision that is distinctly focused on the future. Down through the years Dedar has evolved constantly, to become a Textile Editeur of international standing. Since “only great passions can elevate the soul to great things” (Johann Wolfgang Goethe). A great passion, cultivated and nourished in the course of time, while exploring the multifarious facets and contents of the textile universe, within and beyond the excellent manufacturing art of Como. This patient and fruitful background of experience invested in the company has led to the creation of a variegated repertoire of furnishing fabrics, trimmings and wallpapers. The Dedar collections artfully interpret this cultured research in the world of yarns and textiles with a slant that is decidedly contemporary. Innovative creations which highlight both stylistic traits and manufacturing techniques.
