No Profit. Upcycled. Handmade in Italy, Venice.


The Manifattura della Gagiandra, or Turtle’s Workshop, upcycles fabric remnants and used clothing into housewares and gender-free accessories for both children and adults.


Our pieces are carefully handcrafted and unique in their detail.


We offer the opportunity of a paying job to disabled people and those suffering hardship.

Currently, Genni is employed in the Manifattura and we work together to create the items listed in the shop on line.


In transforming materials, we transform lives.


La Manifattura is situated on the Fondamenta dei Riformati in Venice's Cannaregio Sestiere (no. 3144), a few minutes walk from Santa Lucia railway station and the Jewish Ghetto, in the park of the former Umberto I hospital at Sant'Alvise.
