Who am I? Where do I come from and where do I go?
I was a midwife and…
I used to help bring babies to the world. There must be very little professions more rewarding than this… After that I became a mother, then again, and once more. It wasn’t a bed of roses but it made me stronger and I found happiness.
Nevertheless, at some point I realised I needed to reinvent myself. It had been a while since I left my last profession and I only wanted to go back to the professional stage with my biggest passion: the stationary. I have always been fascinated by its multiple aspects, the notebooks, the paper…
I studied with the best bookbinders, I investigated the different materials… but at the end when it came to giving life to my own project, I understood that I needed “something” different, something that people could fall in love with, my own little contribution to this world.
I searched and chose the most exclusive, artisanal and environmentally friendly materials and processes… I decided to keep that vision, to look for the highest standards of quality and put all of my energy on transmitting that true passion to every person who receives my products.
This is how Antara was born.
My goal, nowadays, keeps being the same as the one I had from the very first day: somehow keep bringing babies to the world that will keep you company, will help you, will share happiness and will share love but with a different medium. A travel book, a notebook… are for me very special. They are little vases where we can store pieces of our lives, memories, dreams, feelings, ideas, wishes… They are babies that are to develop and they are born to help fulfill the dreams and wishes of someone else.
At the end, I have noticed that, in an ever more technologic world, the information that we most value is the handwritten.
