The Italian Collection was Born

The Italian Collection (TIC) is a unique platform that was born out of love for the handmade. Going forth from our place in Milan we sought to find master craftspeople whose beautiful accessories rarely leave their native land.

Our hunt for unique, understated glamour bore fruit, and today the array of items that grace our website bear the human imprint of their maker. No one product is exactly alike; each one is a little different, each one with subtle nuances that make them more valuable.

There are jaunty cashmere capes, coats, and hats knitted and crocheted out of wool fiber spun on ancient looms. There is “wearable art”; silk and wool scarves in painterly, joyous prints. Irresistible, sculptural brass metal dipped in gold for the neck, cuffs for the forearms too; plus bespoke umbrellas with matching hats for those not so sunny days.

And, for lovers of leather there are bags; top-handle, shoulder, cross-shoulder, as well as, punchy pouches ideal for travelling. Gorgeous belts in naturally dyed leather and suede celebrate the romance and precision of Italian craft. All in all an e-gallery of wares that exalts beauty!

Thus, TIC’s devotion is to authenticity; to artisans who place the physical pleasure of wearing a piece of theirs and the emotion it evokes at the heart of their designs. For a man or woman who knows their style, and what is unique about it, our distinctive pieces “Made in Italy” will, no doubt, appeal.
