Who we are




"I'm Ilaria, owner and artisan of the Cordini Rita brand.I love to call myself the artisan of bags because the most important accessory for us women comes from my hands. A best friend who accompanies us on the journey of our life and knows all our secrets. My brand of handcrafted women's bags, Cordini Rita, was born like this, to give well-being to the person who wears my creations. Eco-friendly handcrafted bags with high quality fabrics and an eye towards the environment: animal free and low impact bags. Bags 100% Made in Italy"

"I graduated in Management at the University of Pavia. I started as self-taught, with commitment, sacrifice, I created the Cordini Rita eco-friendly handcrafted women's bags."

Our company was officially born in 2015, after a few years of experimentation, in Volpara (PV), a small village located in the Oltrepo' Pavese hills.

Our laboratory was born in the creative silence of Nature, in this wonderful territory that extends in the province of Pavia for 3.89 square km and where about 100 people live there, the "Volparesi people".

The historic village of Volpara is famous for its Moscato wine, which in this particularly favorable territory acquires particular characteristics of sweetness and aroma, such as to make it unique."Here you can breathe the air of the past,   time seems to have stopped".

Is there, in Volpara, that our bags and the "handmade" items we love so much come to life. Made according to the Italian artisan tradition, which requires care and attention to detail, they are often produced in one-offs or in numbered and limited collections.

Each handcrafted bag is individually crafted. The most important technology for us is our head and our hands: passion, work and ingenuity, characteristics of the Italian creative genius.

Our mission is to defend the true Made in Italy, creating sustainable products with low environmental impact. We are always looking for new ecological methods and materials.

The production is entirely made in Italy and even the raw materials come from Italian companies, which respect our ideals by committing themselves to the environment.

We are committed every day to creating a socially sustainable and respectful supply chain towards the entire ecosystem: environment, humans, and animals included.

The love for our work is totally inside the products we create, the bags, certainly the most important "accessory" for a woman.


 "My mother, Rita, passed on to me her passion for handmade and fabrics. She worked in a high fashion tailor's shop in Pavia, dedicating herself to knitwear and the creation of garments, she lived" the good times of the made to measure".
