OUR IDENTITY

The essence of

CarlottinaLab.

We like the idea of going back to a personal dimension of work, with times and rhythms that match our needs. An overturning of the factory perspective, a new seizing of one’s own creative and organizational skills with respect for one’s creative times, but also a genuine relationship focused on the customer’s value as a person.

Behind the lab

My name is Carlotta Franzini (1986), I was born and raised in Cagliari and I graduated in 2012 at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Cagliari. Proud of my “Carflofortine” origins, I’ve always lived near the sea. Now my home is in a small village called Sant'Anna Arresi, in the south of Sardinia, where I live with my beloved husband, who
also works with me, and my little ones: Giovanni, born in February 2013, and the newly born Francesco.

My first creations date back to the age of 14, but in 2005 I gave life to Carlottinalab, which I like to describe as a small
portable workshop where I make bags and other accessories entirely by hand. Basically, I had a self-taught training in
craftsmanship, although I attended a tailoring course, in order to refine some aspects and traits already learned from my
experience.

The concept of Carlottinalab is to create an always unique and original accessory that reflects the personality and the taste of the person wearing it. I stand for the defence of a craft to be preserved with jealousy and reinterpretation.

My favourite material is leather, although I also work on fabrics and I like to experiment with the use of plastic materials. I take care of every aspect of my production, from the purchase of leather and fabrics, to their design, to the packaging, up to the sponsorship and enhancement of the finished product through an always recognizable graphic design that represents the brand of my products.
