Our design concepts and manufacturing culture take their roots from in depth study of an almost forgotten art of royal carriages fabrication. We meticulously maintain and perfect old traditions and techniques of carriage building. Riding equipment for imperial processions has been connected to the royal regalia. The European and Russian imperial courts considered these ceremonies to be very important. This led to the establishment of the Office of Stables, which was responsible for the manufacturing and servicing of the gala carriages and harnesses as well as the organization of ceremonial pageants.

The Office of Stables employed first-rate artisans, including the silversmiths and jewelers who made costly harnesses, saddles, stirrups, bridles, and other riding equipment, as well as the horse blankets and caparisons. An abundance of such equipment was required, for a hundred or more horses in gala array, which were harnessed in front of the Tsar's carriage during a procession.

The breathtaking opulence of the gold, silver, precious stones, and pearls was intended to emphasize the significance of the processions. The honor of leading the court horses fell exclusively to the highest nobility. Thousands of silver bells and chains of bells created a backdrop of sound eminently suited to the colorful, enchanting show for the Tsar's obedient, enthusiastic subjects.

The latest project Trevi is working on is reproduction of carriage once belonging to Queen Ekaterina II and presented to her by personal friend - Prince Orloff. This royal carriage kept in Moscow Kremlin was manufactured in England in middle of 1870 by special order of Prince. It is one of a kind in the whole world!

This carriage was certainly a technical masterpiece - a Lamborghini of its time. It was favored by Ekaterina II and her successors throughout the 19 century.
