CARLOS VERA DIEPPA

Our story begins in the Colombian mountains in 1995 with Carlos Vera Dieppa, a pioneer in Latin American textile design who, with the help of a local coffee-sack weaver, develops a unique weaving technique where he intertwines local, organic threads to craft unusual fiber-rugs. It is years later, however, when he decides to customize his own looms and add metal threads to these rugs, that his technique becomes a revolutionary legacy.

TOMAS Y CRISTINA VERA

After “Charlie’s” passing in 2010, his son Tomás and his daughter Cristina decide to honor his life and legacy by bringing back his craft. Through a renovated brand concept, the siblings craft an idea that even today, speaks of Colombia and its heartwarming traditions. They call this idea “VERDI” as an ode to their late father’s last names: Vera Dieppa.

VERDI TODAY


“...exceptional, sustainable craft is
today’s ultimate luxury.”


VERDI carries fique and metal rugs, organic-silk cushions, plantain-fiber and copper-thread curtains, textiles, tableware and silver-plated handbags, among other handwoven items. Having been included twice in Surface Magazine’s “THE LIST” as “one of the brands that are shaping the design world”, having collaborated with designers like Johanna Ortiz and having sold at retailers like Bergdorf Goodman, Moda Operandi and Net-A-Porter, VERDI is now a multidimensional design studio that combines craftsmanship with luxury to create homeware, fashion and art pieces for the aesthetically and socially inclined.

VERDI'S BOOK


The sum of years designing, weaving and dreaming.

This volume of our VERDI BOOK sets out to illustrate bits and pieces of our culture while
sharing VERDI's story and design; it updates the concept of our brand to a multidimensional
textile studio that combines interior design, fashion, and art.

VERDI BOOK

"It seems surreal sometimes, how only a few years ago, we were two kids in a tiny home-office space flooded by rug sample, color palettes, fibers, and an initial sketch of "VERDI's Tree of Life" drawn by my brother Tomas, in blue ink, on a paper nailed to a cork. Even more so, it's hard to believe that 25 years earlier, our old man had been traveling throughout Colombia in search of plant-based fibers, naturally-colored threads and learning about this mesmerizing world of textiles. Little did he know that two decades later, his children would be realizing a dream he'd left behind, and that his distinctive technique and fiber & copper rug, would eventually become a part of the cultural heritage of our country".
