Iacobella - Artisans from Rome, Italy
Raised between Italy, The UK, and the Caribbean, Iacobella Gaetani was born into a life of perpetual travel with an insatiable curiosity for culture and knowledge. She began to discover the world on her own at a very young age while on voyages to India and South America, which defined the beginnings of her eclectic taste. Through these travels she grew fascinated by native people who were still closely intact with their natural surroundings, and their unique artistic ability to express their relationship between nature and crafts. By weaving, embroidering, textiles and natural materials, ancient artisanal traditions and history are passed down from generation to generation. Iacobella created her first leather bag on a beach in Rio de Janeiro together with the city’s local artisans. From that moment on she decided to launch her own collection of artisanal handcrafted bags in Rome, Italy.
