Environment and Ethics

Cordini Rita by Ilaria Ricci

Our philosophy is to create ethical handcrafted women's bags, with low environmental impact and cruelty free. Our bags are made respecting ethical and environmental rules.

In our small way we want to be a social company. What does it mean? That the value we create is available to society again and this is why we are active in supporting our community.

By choosing to purchase the products of a small brand you are choosing to enhance our country. We are part of an interconnected system, if we work, we will make our suppliers, our collaborators, the local shops, bars, restaurants and all the activities connected to our corporate and private life work.

By choosing to purchase from an artisan business we will support Italian savoir faire and be part of the recovery of our country's manufacturing traditions.

Choosing to purchase from an Italian artisan brand is an act of courage that only leads to positive consequences for our community.

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it treats animals

Mahatma Gan quote

Our handcrafted bags are made by hand, especially manual craftsmanship allows us to reduce energy use. Our bags do not use chemicals that are harmful to the environment (the materials comply with Reach and other regulations in terms of chemical substances), we use water-based glues and include them as little as possible in the manufacturing process. We recover all waste, we don't throw anything away.

Human labor is not exploited.


We support reforestation projects around the world and help offset our Co2 emissions. Furthermore, for every sale made, a tree will be planted in one of the projects you find on Tree Nation.

On 12 October 2020 the first tree was planted in La Pedregoza in Colombia, visit our forest: https://tree-nation.com/profile/ricci-ilaria
