COLLEVILCA

/ A STORY OF PASSION
TRADITION
LOVE
CREATIVITY /

A tradition of craftsmanship that comes from afar, and that brings with it all the attention and precision in the processing of a timeless material: crystal. Our passion in making our works with love and passion is the legacy of the renowned tradition of crystal processing in Colle Val D’Elsa, which has been going on for over 800 years. Blowing, modeling and finishing: in our laboratories every day happens the same magic that happens for years and that allows us to transform a shapeless and incandescent mass into something concrete. Everyday objects, but also exclusive designs, born from collaborations with the most famous contemporary artists in the world, to make each piece a masterpiece.

COLLE - VILCA

/ THE UNION OF TWO CRYSTAL FACTORIES /

ColleVilca is the result of the union of  Colle” and “Vilca” companies, that took place in 2003. Vilca was born in 1960, with all the experience of Franco Brogi who in 1947, to gain new knowledge, went to Waterfard in Ireland. Vilca has always collaborated with renowned designers like Ambrogio Pozzi, David Palterer and Shiro Kuramata.
Colle was born in 1970 and has always tried to produce objects that united the high quality of the use of advanced technology, to design. In 1985 Colle started a strong collaboration with the italian designer and architect Angelo Mangiarotti, a relationship that has distinguished the production of the company.
In 2003 Vilca bought Colle, merging the two companies in a single brand name: Collevilca.
We at Collevilca believe in the artisan tradition of crystal processing, producing the material exclusively in our own factory in Colle di Val D’Elsa, all handmade with love and passion.

WE REALLY MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

WE CARE!

QUALITY

Our crystal is unique in its sound performance, brilliance and transparency. The continuous updating towards advanced production techniques, combined with the secrets handed down by generations of master glassmakers, allow us to maintain a high quality.

SUSTAINABILITY

All Collevilca production is made without the use of lead. We chose to be sustainable, eliminating the use of this material used to ensure resistance to products, studying an alternative equally valid and maintaining high quality performances. We are eco-friendly!

DURABILITY

Our crystal products, especially if intended for frequent use, are more resistant than the average product, we ensure the integrity and the scratch resistance of every single product even in the long run. We assure the durability, thanks to the great quality of our material.

CREATIVITY

We put our heads and hearts into everything we produce. From the inspiration of our master glassmakers, but also from important collaborations with architects and designers of international fame, unique and original forms are born.

Amazing craftmanship, I do not think there is any other place in Italy, other than Murano, where they still hand blow all their products. The wine glasses are so thin and some of them have a unique shape. You cannot miss a visit to their showroom if you are in the Siena area

The visit to the Vilca made me relive a beautiful atmosphere made of skills and dexterity that today are disappearing. In the Show Room, elegant, Design and unique forms are revisited. Drinking in their thin glasses is a unique experience, which I highly recommend.
