From that simple idea we have grown and grown into the internationally renowned and award winning design house we are today, still striving to create an abundance of precious things for people to collect, enjoy and treasure.

The entrepreneurial spirit established by founders Lucio and Meera Santoro set the company on a distinct path of innovation and growth, and with the strong global brand success we are achieving today this is a really exciting time to be a part of the SANTORO team. As we continue to grow we’re always on the lookout for intelligent, imaginative and enthusiastic people to share our values and be part of our warm, friendly, creative and entrepreneurial team.
