Single method

With handmade paper from Amalfi

Because Pitteikon prints are unique.

Because Pitteikon prints are unique.

The colors are fresh, expressive and lively. My idea is to get closer to that result and seek an engaging effect.

The intent is to convey the emotion of a freshly painted painting.

Amalfi handmade paper is still made today one sheet at a time, following a centuries-old "recipe".

The result is a unique sheet of paper, with frayed edges, particular to the touch.

On this handmade paper the colors... sing!

The emotion of a painting in a print

The emotion of a painting in a print

No comparison is possible with an industrial product.

Printing on such high-quality paper was a challenge that required a few years of work in experiments and tests.

The marriage between past and future has finally been successfully celebrated: a joy for the eyes.

We must then protect the final result.

Some paints prevent the colors from changing. Other paints, however, are able to enhance the chromatic range of colours, making them fresh and lively... as if they had just been painted.

Your print is finally stamped, numbered and signed, and if you want also personalized.

A unique method for exclusive prints.
