From tradition to innovation,
I.S.O.L.A. is a corporation formed by the Sardinian Regional Authorities with the aim of promoting and organising initiatives to enhance the strengthening and technical, artistic and commercial development of Sardinian artisan crafts. The undertaking of detailed research has enabled I.S.O.L.A. to hand down the original techniques used in production of articles. Still today articles selected by I.S.O.L.A. are created using the same techniques applied centuries ago.
The same care is taken in safeguarding the forms and symbols which have been handed down through the ages and which are reproduced in the designs adorning all articles produced by I.S.O.L.A.
However, to testify the evolving tradition implied in Sardinian artisan craftsmanship, I.S.O.L.A. also selects articles characterised by a tendency towards innovation, where traditional designs and products take on modern semblance. Accordingly, the traditional crafts take on a designer look, providing articles of an extraordinarily modern hue.
In order to protect the artisan products, there is a regional law n. 14 of 1984 established a hallmark as a guarantee of origin and quality of typical Sardinian artisan crafts. This law is inactive at present.
