Story
Where is Home?

Home, perhaps, is not one place or country. Perhaps we find a feeling of home through the rituals we create for ourselves; a sentiment of being rooted or grounded. Alighieri’s SS20 collection highlights the way in which we build homes, relationships and family trees through jewellery, passing them to the people we love, carrying them daily as reminders of our past experiences and promises for future adventures.

“To posit the question, Where is home?, I travelled back to Zambia, the vivid backdrop of my childhood, to shoot the new collection. I wanted to place these images alongside portraits of my 62 year old mother, as a celebration of her roots, and to underline the beautiful way in which the Alighieri community is an anthology of human beings, of many ages and places. We are all collecting fragments from the places we’ve been, and trying to piece them together to create a sense of identity.” - Rosh Mahtani.

"Let anyone who asks my name know I am Leah,
and here I move about, using my fair hands
to weave myself a garland."  

- Purgatorio Canto XXVII 

As Dante is about to cross the River Lethe, one more step towards meeting his love< Beatrice, he has a dream about two Biblical women: Rachel and Leah. Leah is a symbol of an active life, she is weaving herself a garland in the same way that Dante is weaving his story. The Woven Tapestry Amulet is an homage to the power of art as catharsis.
