Sometimes I have fun repairing crocheted stuff.

This is a vintage crochet tote bag, probably from the 80's, in a fine cotton filet work.

I took off the metal handle,washed , and replaced a plastic zipper with a metal one , which is more elegant and fixed with some kind of embroidery.

I'm Letizia, born in Florence in a fashion business family…,

My father was the founder of Conte of Florence, a sportswear brand , born in ’58 but had its success in the ’80,maybe the oldest of you remember it, and maybe some of you have had a fleece or a down hat or a ski sweather.

I’ve always played with fabrics and yarn, creating dress for my Barbie dolls.
My grandma taught me to crochet, and in these last years I discovered the therapeutic aspect of it.

Living here in Florence, close to the luxury bag factories district, I use to have to handle nice recovery material, so I started to make something with it: looking at this stuff my creativity starts to work….
First I started to make things to gift to my friends, and they appreciated a lot them, but then I realized that this could have been my job (again).
