The invention of Tidelli’s nautical rope was a turning point. Replacing fiber with rope made Tidelli furniture more durable, comfortable, sustainable, and weather resistant. Nautical rope imitates nature with the look and feel of reed, while outlasting the effects of mother nature.
Made with polyester thread imported from Holland, our nautical rope is braided by hand, does not absorb heat or liquids and allows for numerous wefts, thicknesses, densities and exclusive patterns. Tidelli nautical rope is made in-house to guarantee its 100% synthetic, high quality craftsmanship - which makes it so suitable for outdoor living.
Over time, if exposed to direct sunlight, nautical rope may lose some of its luster - reducing the original hue. To best care for and clean your nautical rope, use a damp cloth in a solution of warm water and mild soap. Clean the rope and then rinse with another damp cloth with water only. Allow to air dry. If stains are deep or dirt persists, re-wet the rope with soap and water and rub. Rinse and let dry.
Do not use water pressure cleaners or harsh chemicals (bleach, ammonia, etc.) that can affect the fibers that make up the rope. Never use solvents, removers, abrasive or alkaline (pH > 8) to clean the furniture. Please avoid using other chemical cleaning agents, high pressure cleaners, or abrasive cleaning products.
Eucalyptus Wood is used for the structure of selected Tidelli furniture, from armchairs to table tops. A team of 40 carpenters works solely with recycled wood from demolition or reforestation projects. Handmade craftsmanship upcycles raw materials. Wood that is not only sustainable but also unique. Adding personality to these one-of-a-kind products.
Wood being a natural material, it may change color or even crack due to humidity levels or sudden changes in temperature. When left outdoors, wood undergoes a natural process of oxidation. To maintain and restore the original appearance of your Madeira wood Tidelli furniture, reapply varnish. We recommend purchasing directly from our resellers according to the tone of your furniture, in order to maintain the original appearance.
Ask a Tidelli consultant what is the right product to use. Depending on the location of use and its exposure to the sun, the wood may lose its original appearance between 6 to 24 months.
After 10 years working as a General Motors executive, in the areas of product development, marketing and logistics, Luciano Mandelli took over Tidelli’s industrial management along with the development of new products. Since this period, he has created several designs that compose the current collection of the company; as well, he has developed other projects with independent designers.
