About calarisa

On Etsy since 2017

My name is Cinzia, I design and sew purses for businesswomen, freelance women, and all those women who love their job and do it with passion and enthusiasm – but often find themselves living in formal work environments,
perhaps environments with bad vibes. These women need to bring their light and lightness back - and they will, wearing my colourful purses.

If you are one of these creative and enthusiastic women, if you enjoy little things and life’s simple pleasures, if you
love to play: I design my purses exactly for YOU.

I live and work in Rome, a wonderful city rich of history and legendary monuments, but where you can find hidden
spots and charming tiny alleys also, full of colours, outdoor cafes, teeming with life. Rome’s atmosphere influences
the things I do, in my job I always try to put into play all the little happy things that fulfil my life.

Sewing has been my great passion for the past 10 years, and this encouraged me to study and improve, taking sewing
courses, attending textile culture seminars and also a leather crafting class. In this period I’m taking a textile art class.

My brand is far more recent. After working as a secretary for 15 years, I decided to see the downsizing of my office as
an opportunity, and give a chance to my long cherished dream. I started to sew for others the things I used to sew
only for me: lightweight but long-lasting purses, with a simple design, colourful – because I believe they can bring
lightness, joy, creativity and originality.

I know I will have to work and study hard. It’s not easy to design and sell handmade items, and I have a lot to learn
about managing my store, marketing, communication, planning. It will take time and effort, but I am determined and
willing to realize my dream: to live with this job.

I began with this new challenge participating to the Festival del Verde e del Paesaggio in Rome, a very important
national venue. It was a great experience for me; I hope I will have the opportunity to do it again. My purses were welcomed with an enthusiasm I was not expecting to receive. And this encouraged me to keep going in this new business.

Contact me to customize your purse: I will be more than happy to make your dreams come true.
