Creating luxury Italian scarves, ties and pocket squares since 2004

Sunset in Italy

Slow fashion. Fair price.

It all started with a childhood in Rome

Where my friends and I played in the piazzas and old streets which in the '60s and '70s were populated with small artisanal shops where I shopped with my mother. My favorites were the fabric shops. I loved to sew and create things, and walls lined with rolls of fabrics fascinated me.

Lake Como where our silk scarves are made

In 2003, during a trip to Lake Como, everything changed

During that trip I had the good fortune to be introduced to the silk that Como is historically famous for, and some of the people who make it.

A love affair was born along with a determination to bring Como silk to the USA where I was living at the time.

In 2004, I opened the online boutique, selling women's scarves. It was a bit crazy, as at the time I did not even have a computer.

In 2020, my daughter Francesca joined me

And together we made a second website to start selling in Europe.

Francesca lives in France and I live on a small organic farm in Le Marche, Italy. This is a photo taken from my front veranda.

Living surrounded by nature is a continuous source of design inspiration for me.

Eco-conscious and fair labor

Every item in our boutique is made in sweatshop-free, eco-conscious, family-run businesses in Italy. I personally visit these workshops several times a year, and they have become a part of our family.

We believe in giving back to our community

And that no family should go hungry. At Elizabetta, each of us is grateful that we have food on our tables.

That is why we donate a portion of our profits to our local food bank here in Italy, Banco Alimentare.

We are committed to preserving the world’s finest textile craft by respecting its centuries-old traditions and the families who continue to share them with the world.
