TONKI: WHO WE ARE

We are a team of Art Enthusiasts & Print Makers who would like to introduce Tonki to the North America. Tonki was created in Italy in 2012 by Ruggero Frigoli and Alessandra Renis as a way to touch our memories again, our photos lost to the whirlwind of social media. Tonki first crowd funded through Italian site: Starteed. Embraced by photography fans throughout Europe, Tonki creates new fans at events such as Design Week in Milan, London and in Amsterdam. Fast forward to 2014, We discover Tonki in Italy, think what Alessandra & Ruggero created is so awesome, we decided to join forces with them to bring Tonki to the U.S and Canadian markets!
