Omines Gabba Atelier by Giampaolo Gabba
Giampaolo Gabba carries forward with skill and dedication the legacy of his historic family of tailors at GiTiRoMa, founded by his father Francesco and his mother Magdalene in 1954. After a long period of work within the family business, in 2001 he decided to undertake his own enterprise and opened Sartoria Gabba in the historic centre of Nuoro. The long experience and knowledge of the industry, combined with his personal attitude and meticulous research and rediscovery of ancient tailoring techniques, led him to develop a collection of original taste and refined textiles, garments that include customized, ready-to-wear clothing and accessories and items for furnishing, decor and design. Objects characterized by a clear reference to Sardinian tradition, embellished with original embroidery and fabric paintings, where the choice of materials, carefully selected according to clear aesthetics and peculiarities, is part of an educated creative pathway, rich in ethical considerations and cultural references.
The collection includes ready-to-wear clothing and tailor-made fashion accessories, such as bags,, stoles, pins and other original products, but also furnishing and textiles for the table sets. The entire collection is characterized by valuable embroideries, made by hand and hand-decorated with fabric inserts.
His craftsmanship includes the study of pattern development and layout, and scissors cut. For the assembly, he uses traditional tailoring techniques, valuable design details and finishing, in particular for outerwear, characterized by a complex structure. The decoration on fabric is performed through artistic manual embroidery, using the sewing foot machine, following a chalked patter or a fabric painting.
