Handmade speaks of you
My name is Sara and I live in central Italy, a place of medieval cities and nature.
I am a thirty-year with a degree in political science who has loved fashion as a form of expression since childhood. Today I work as a patternmaker for Italian and international brands that produce in my country. This job combines creativity and technical skills, allows me to stay in touch with the most authentic side of the fashion world: the innovative and manufacturing.
I live between city and countryside where I grew up and now I have my studio.
Every day I take a break to stay in touch with nature and the cat colony that I care (there are 16 cats today!) The best anti-stress ever!
In this regard: the large part of PIRIFOOLERY proceeds is devolved to their care and feeding.
CREATIVE PROCESS + PHILOSOPHY
I initially gave substance to my inspirations (coming from art, fashion and nature) through photography and later creating the most diverse items, following my passions and my instincts. Sometimes I start from materials, other times by personal temporary obsessions!
I am an open mind and curious who like to experiment with new materials and techniques, styles and to discover creative ways pursuing a personal point of view.
So in my shop you can find different types of products, for the most part unique or very limited in production.
Common feature of all my creations is the attention to detail (materials, processing), typical of Italian manufacturing works, in respect of which I am used to working constantly.
At the same time we must not forget that the added value of an object created "by hand" is a uniqueness that is also expressed through any imperfections, which become characteristics of the object.
ME & ETSY
I discovered Etsy in 2008 and three years later I opened my shop in order to test my creations, especially to test myself: often my large number of ideas bring me to be inconstant!
Looking at my shop, I was very surprised to find my bright and colored side, never revealed before: I am a black dressed girl, a lover of accessories that do not go unnoticed, but do not lack elegance, whose essence is the harmony.
I have a special attraction for all is out of the ordinary, original, odd and especially when it tends also to darkness and mysticism.
The mini-series COLDMOON celebrates this mine side.
I think the same concept of “handmade” places at its center one who creates and reveal traits of his soul also unexpected, this gives a priceless value to his work.
I am a proud member of EtsyItalia Team (EIT), one of the most active and willing national team inside the Etsy community!
Each of us carries on creativity, craftsmanship, sense of beauty, that characterize our country all over the world.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Delivery cannot begin until payment has been received.
Sometimes, for the purchase of more items, the automated system for calculate shipping costs is not efficient, so I use to make a refund through PayPal if the shipping costs paid exceed the actual!
After I have received your payment I’ll proceed within 7 business days with shipping (not apply to custom orders).
Delivery times can vary from 5 days (or less for Italy), to 7/15 days (for Europe countries), until 30 days overseas.
► RECORDED DELIVERY:
To keep shipping costs low I send my articles in a big padded envelope via ordinary priority mail which is generally reliable but not traceable.
If you prefer recorded delivery let me know by message (or by email) before to make the purchase of the object, I will adjust the shipping cost for you, which varies by the destination country and the items. Then you can proceed with the purchase.
If you have already completed the purchase process: let me know via convo or email that you prefer a recorded delivery and I tell you the extra cost to pay for shipping.
Note: I do not answer for items damaged during transit or for the postal miscarriages.
goods are sent at your risk, insurance or registered parcels are only at your request.
I recommend you register parcels over €100.00.
► VERIFY YOUR ADDRESS:
Please be sure the shipping address provided on Etsy is current and correct. I am not responsible for packages being sent to outdated or incorrect addresses!
PLEASE NOTE: International customers are responsible for any fees, taxes and duties associated with shipping and purchasing to their country!
Refunds and Exchanges
If eventually something does not satisfy you about your purchase, please contact me before posting negative feedback. Thanks!
I generally don’t refund or exchange: I think my pictures and my descriptions about the articles are quite explanatory and comprehensive.
The colours are well represented in the images, but please be aware of the limitations of digital imagery and colour and that different computer monitors can display the same image in a very different way.
Anyway you'll get an exchange (if possible) if the item is sent back to me unused and in an original condition. All exchange shipping costs are buyer's responsibility (return and second shipping)!
Custom orders can NOT be refunded, as they are specially made.
Also I do not answer for items damaged during transit or for the postal miscarriages: if you are afraid about losses request me freely recorded delivery ;)
Additional policies and FAQs
► CUSTOM ITEMS:
If you want a custom work you can contact me for details of the measures, tell me about your favourite colours and pattern (between those published in the shop), by email I will show you the material that I have, costs and turnaround times .
Remember: I often use recycled materials and I could no longer have available some fabrics!
Please note: Each of my items is entirely handmade and original: I do not copy and imitate the work of others, is a matter of personal honesty and respect for others' work.
