We had the good fortune of connecting with Davinci Ferrari and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Davinci, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I wanted to make a product people can use for daily indoor purposes

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I don’t like to brag but 2 things I’m proud of and sets me apart is my creativity and ability to figure things out. I have been creating in the niche fashion world for about ten years now. I have definetly learned a thing or two.
It’s definitely wasn’t and still isn’t easy. There were lots of times where I questioned myself and what I’m doing, even almost gave up, But I love to create and be me and I use that as a memento to keep going and figure out challenges.
I want the world to be cozy and to know that my brand Davinci Slippers purpose is to provide the coziest slippers ever

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’m actually a dope tour guide when my peoples come to visit. First thing I do is take them to beach for a nice scenic walk, i love all the beaches Santa Monica’s especially. Food would be based on their palettes
But hitting a cactus Mexican food spot for some Birria tacos and burritos is a must experience. I also like ramen and Caribbean food so I would also take them to e.a.k ramen on Mel rose or “a beautiful life” Jamaican spot
Downtown. As far a drinks I like the outdoor spots like mama shelter, birkshire house or e.p & l.p which is a vibe. There are other but these come to Mind
