Lucia says: I'm a 34-year-old Italian designer based in Bologna, Italy. I create and sew clothes and bags in a progressive experimentation with different materials and techniques.
Last summer I was looking for a new fabric for new season's bags, so I found a lot of raffia pieces in a beautiful market near my parents' house. I started making this bucket bag and I realize that raffia is a great material! It's slouchy and strong at the same time and the pattern of the fabric makes this bag unique!
I used tapestry cord to make the handles and the cotton lining is two-tone with a useful zipped pocket.
