Handmade in Italy
Each Festina Lente Home product is handmade in Italy with love.
Marta was born and raised in Italy. She founded Festina Lente Home in 2017 when she started making candles in her kitchen in New York.
She mixed scents that reminded her of simple moments of her life in Italy: a stroll in the woods, a visit to the museum, fresh laundry hanging on a balcony blooming with flowers.
Now she lives with her family in Milan and her love for her country is truly Made in Italy.
A Family Affair
The logo of all our products was designed by Marta’s mother, a talented artist. It comes from a series of gold coins minted for Emperor Augustus in ancient Rome with the images of a crab and a butterfly.
The crab needs the butterfly’s colorful wings to rise above its limits. The butterfly depends on the crab to be grounded and supported.
