Exclusive to Caramel are Maria La Rosa holdalls which showcase the very essence of understated luxury combined with traditional craftsmanship. Fine wool from traditional Italian mills, spun by Milanese artisans on antique looms is used to create stripe or geometric print capacious styles that complement our womenswear collection.
All textiles made by Maria La Rosa are the result of a strictly manual process performed on antique looms that are completely void of mechanically moving parts. Each step from laying out the warp-yarn and passing it through the reeds and heedles, to binding and wrapping it into the warp beam, to the actual weaving is done exclusively by hand. Her predilection is for carefully selected natural fibres such as cotton, rafia, linen, silk, chenille, cashmere and alpaca. She creates unique handcrafted bags, shawls, hats, socks, selected clothing and jewellery.
The production is entirely made in Italy, the quantity is limited and each component is worked by hand.
