ABOUT ME

Since 1978

Jeans Decor is the mean of the artist Flavio Ongaro to cater to his long-term love relationship with denim textiles and graphic arts.

Flavio Ongaro began his journey in the world of handcraft in 1978, following closely the high fashion echelons. He decides to merge his everlasting love for streetwear and the jeans, the fabric that epitomises the streets, to his artisanal skills.

Jeans Decor was born in an environment rich of artistic experimentation, love for art and human works.

Influenced by the venetian artist Mariano Fortuny, whom he has always admired, Flavio Ongaro starts his research with a wide range of printing techniques, treatments and fabrics.

 

“It isn’t the quantity of light, but the quality of light, that makes things visibile
– Mariano Fortuny

 

Eventually he develops the themes that he most craved for: nature and hand-made vintage manufacture.

Blue, the color of water, has always exerted a calming and soul lifting effect on man. Flavio Ongaro turned denim homogeneous aspect into proper jeans paintings which fine fabrics can be used for the most different roles, in particular in the scope of interior design: from curtains, to couches, from painting, to pillows.

The materic study of jeans and the application of printing technique have been faced through decades of in-field work. This decennial experience subsequentially have been channeled into the creation of Jeans Decor, a brand made strong by collaborations with interior designers, architects and merchants from every part of the world.
