::: History of Water Violet Bows
Water Violet Bows was founded in 1994 by Renato Cesar Casara in the small village of Demetrio Ribeiro near the town of Joao Neiva located in Southeastern Brazil. Since its founding, the company has shown increasing signs of prosperity - a trait of the Italian immigrants who colonized the region in the 19th century.
In the beginning, the company produced only twenty handcrafted bows each month. It relied on a small staff of one bowmaker and three other employees.
Water Violet Bows entered the 21st century with a production rate of 450 bows per month, and has a production capability of 600 bows per month. Presently, Water Violet Bows employs a total of 38 professionals. Among them are ten master bowmakers who handcraft the finest violin, viola, cello, bass, and baroque bows.
