Greetings! I'm Valentina Lollino, founder of Design For Dinner.
DFD started in 2017 as an interesting news blog about interior design, fashion design, food design, and the art of mixology.
I believe that whether it's a glass to be filled up, a room to be decorated, a plate to be garnished or a t-shirt to be printed, the designing process is what keeps them connected...the creation of something special from a simple idea.
Having graduated from the Interior Design program in Italy, I began traveling around the world, and I have seen how these forms of art can change, evolve and remain proudly connected to their roots at the same time. Each culture on this planet offers a unique experience, a different smell, a different taste, and a different vision of the world.
So I created DFD to spread an encouraging message about being "border free", mentally and physically.
All the products are printed on demand and fulfilled specifically for you after your purchase, using different techniques like DTG (direct-to-garment), mostly for hoodies and t-shirts, Embroidery for beanies and sweatshirts, Sublimation for coffee mugs and UV Printing for phone cases.
Most of the printers use less electricity, water, and chemicals than standard industry printers, and thanks to several fulfillment centers across the globe, with partner facilities in Australia and Japan, around 78% of the orders are delivered in the same country they’re fulfilled, this means reducing the carbon emissions from shipping.
High quality materials are essential for a great collection and I really care about the health of our planet, that's why I opted for a print on demand service...less waste!
