COMPLIMENTI likes to work with natural materials like shell, stingray and brushed silver. Because of the natural character, the edition stays limited and our clients can enjoy an exclusive collection.
These creations are for sale in carefully chosen boutiques and through the webshop. Everything is self-made, therefore tailor-made creations are possible on demand.
The stingray skins used by Complimenti are a by-product of food-fishing cooperatives of fishermen on the rim of the South China and Andaman Seas. Complimenti follows and improves the techniques developed in the late 18th century in France by Jean-Claude Galuchat. At the time, and later in the Art Déco era of the first quarter of the 20th century galuchat was strictly used to cover boxes, sheaths and furniture.
