During a visit to Lake Como in 2003, textile aficionado Elizabeth (Elizabetta, as her friends here in Italy call her) was introduced to the silk scarves and fabrics that the area is historically famous for. A love affair with silk scarves started and in 2004 the boutique was born.
We are devoted to supporting family-owned workshops that make everything in small quantities. This means you know you are wearing a unique piece of art and we are dedicated to bringing these fashion accessories to you at un-inflated prices. Unlike large companies that make thousands of any one item, we make our accessories in very small quantities. Unique, fresh designs that are always reasonably priced.
Every item in our boutique is made in sweatshop-free, eco-conscious, family-run businesses in Italy.
Our leather bags are handmade in small artisan workshops in central Italy. Our scarves, shawls and ties are made by small to medium sized textile mills in northern Italy.
These same artisans also produce for famous, high-end fashion houses using the same fabrics and techniques.
Elizabeth designs and sources new products, adding new designs to the boutique to keep our selection fresh.
We often design new prints using end rolls of the highest quality fabrics as we love beautiful textiles and can’t bear to see them sitting on a shelf!
