Tell us about yourself.
Hello, my name is Cinzia and I live in Rome.
I grew up in a family of craftsmen and have been used to seeing the thoughts become out of the hands of my accomplishments. I ran a boutique in the center of Rome together with my sister selling clothes and high fashion accessories discovering a passion for bags. I think the bag is the most important accessory in the day of a woman. Here in Italy, people say, looks inside the bag of a woman to find out who she really is, but remember that if she is letting you look, you will be married shortly.
When did you open your business and what make you decide to do so?
So, thinking about a bag that could be reflected and achieve it by choosing the material, the forms by designing and making something that I loved, has become my dream in 2015.
Tell us a bit about your products.
Our goal is to realize bags made in Italy in real leather to keep in life the old tradition of our master craftsmen that, with passion and personality from over three generations.
Our goods are unique, totally hand made and dedicated to all that want to stand out with elegance.
What inspires your work?
Each creation is like the birth of a child, seeing it grow slowly is a great satisfaction, especially when my clients are appreciative.
What are your future goals for the business this year? What is your dream for this business?
My goal is to increase the choice for my clients and meet their needs!
What makes your business stand out from businesses that sell similar products?
Quality. Quality. Quality.
The true Italian craftsman who loves worldwide!
Tell us a bit about your work space. Do you have a separate studio?
I design and make in my little home studio. My friend’s brother Antonia helps with the assembly. He has a laboratory for 30 years in Rome, in the old district of Campo dei Fiori.
What have you learned since opening your business that you wish you had known before hand?
You must know how to win the trust of your customers.
Any advice for those thinking about selling on Etsy?
Etsy is a mom, you have to work hard to get the right results.
When you’re not working, what do you like to do to unwind and have fun? Do you have any hobbies?
I spend almost all my time to my work that I love.
I enjoy my time with my family and I have two grandchildren.
I like cooking the delicacies of the Roman cuisine.
What is your favorite quote?
Tried to bring my hand bags and losing them, I added a strip and put my shoulder.
