Valeasc Designer Feature:
My name is Valentina Asciutti and my artistic alter ego is valeasc. I am Italian but I have been living in London for six years now. As Valentina, I have devoted my entire life to the study of the ancient world, as valeasc, I immerse myself into colours, fabric and funky shapes.
valeasc is a colourful and cheerful stationery shop devoted to unique greeting cards and funky paper goods. valeasc was born a little over a year ago, it started offering hand-made cards decorated with fabric and with time the range has expanded. The products are all simple, yet sophisticated, traditional but with a modern touch.
Valeasc inspiration comes from the bustling everyday life in the ever so vibrant and beautiful London. The variety of colours, shapes, materials and techniques reflect the diversity of people and taste in such a multi-ethnic city. valeasc products offer a combination of modern and old.
My most popular item is my *butterflies cards*, a set of four A6 folded cards with matching C6 envelopes of different shades of pink and purple. Each card is embellished with three butterflies made of designer and vintage fabrics. The butterflies are meticulously hand-cut and fused onto the card.
