The Project

We came up with our range of donkey milk cosmetics and opened our store in the Sassi neighbourhood of Matera, not only because it’s our home, but above all because this place has enormous symbolic value: it represents rebirth.

Fratello Sole

 

We are the Fratello Sole Cooperative, working since 1982 to support the rehabilitation of people suffering from pathological dependencies and/or mental illness.
Our therapy courses are geared to psychological and social rehabilitation, guiding individuals to learn skills that will help them recover self-esteem, interact and work with others; and ultimately, lead a normal and independent life.

 

Donkeys came into our world more than 10 years ago and changed everything for our community. They are wonderful animals and have great therapeutic value: a donkey accompanies you and makes you feel safe, like a guardian angel Even just stroking them is beneficial.
The animal-human interaction is truly extraordinary.
Thanks to onotherapy (or donkey therapy), our courses of treatment achieve excellent results.

Get Advice

I discovered this shop by chance while walking as a tourist through the Sassi of Matera. I purchased several products to give as souvenirs to my mother and sister. I made a great impression because the products are very well presented, and, I was told, they are also of excellent quality.

Ho acquistato la crema viso ed il siero per fare un regalo alla mia amica che è rimasta entusiasta dell’effetto emolliente che hanno sulla pelle.

Excellent products made with donkey milk. They have a notable hydrating and nourishing effect and a very delicate and pleasant scent. Perfect for those looking for natural cosmetic products.
