Handmade Italian home furnishings make elegant wedding gifts.

We are thrilled to provide an online gift registry for our Italian handmade gifts – we are bringing the old world into the new world

Couples today often already have the traditional home and kitchen items that the large chain stores offer. Instead, at Fatto a Mano, a small locally owned shop, discriminating couples can now register for unique items such as a piece of artwork, a chandelier, or even a piece of antique furniture in San Francisco. Engaged couples simply stop by the store, located at 1800 Union Street in San Francisco, select the items for their registry, and within a few days, the gift list is available for online viewing and purchasing. .

Fatto a Mano offers luxurious home furnishings handcrafted in Italy, including artisan cutlery, colorful Venetian glass, affordable artwork, handpainted Tuscan ceramics, and Italian furniture in San Francisco. Gifts at all price levels can be found at Fatto a Mano, including

  •     Hand painted Tuscan ceramics including serving bowls, platters, pitchers, and mugs (special orders are welcome)
  •     Handmade knives from Tuscany including horn-handled steak knives, cheese knives, kitchen knives, and handcrafted pocket knives
  •     Colorful Venetian glassware by Zafferano
  •     Olive wood salt & pepper mills, cutting boards, and salad bowls made in Tuscany

The wedding guests can shop online, in the shop, or via a toll-free phone call and all gifts are wrapped in beautiful Florentine paper. The happy couples receive a $75 gift card upon registering, and after their wedding, they enjoy 10% off all items not purchased from their gift list. The San Francisco gift registry also allows higher-priced items to be broken down into smaller contribution amounts.

“We are thrilled to provide an online gift registry for our Italian handmade gifts – we are bringing the old world into the new world,” says co-owner Heather Dempsey.
