STILIT was founded in December 1995 at Tassullo, Trento, at the entrance to the Val di Non, with the object of producing wooden items to new and original designs. Franco became responsible for the commercial section and Miriam responsible for the graphic design. From a small family-conducted artisan workshop, the firm grew almost immediately with fast expanding sales, so much so that in 97 it became necessary to open a new warehouse at San Michele and employ warehousemen, secretaries and sales representatives. Today we can safely say that from Miriams pencil at least 5,000 items have materialised, about 2,000 of which are still in production. Today there is a sales network in the entire Alpine area – Trentino, Alto Adige, Val dAosta, Piedmont – also extended to other regions of Italy and Switzerland, France and Germany. The planning and design as well as the management remain in Italy whilst the production has been moved to the Philippines to a firm which has been cooperating with Stilit since the first years of their activity.
