Maria La Rosa's handbags and accessories are developed from a multi disciplinary approach to weaving, macramé, knitting, crochet and embroidery.
The beautiful and artful textiles made by La Rosa are the result of a completely manual process performed on antique looms which are completely void of any mechanically moving parts. Each step, from laying out the warp-yarn and passing it through the reeds and needles, to binding and wrapping it into the warp beam, to the actual weaving, is done exclusively by hand.
La Rosa's predilection is for carefully selected natural fibers such as cotton, rafia, linen, silk, chenille, cashmere and alpaca. She creates unique handcrafted bags, shawls, hats, socks, selected clothing and jewelry. The production is entirely made in Italy, the quantity is limited and each component is worked by hand.
