The artisan

Carlo Budroni's style is unmistakable: he works at the C + C workshop, located in the city center of Cagliari, in the district of Villanova. Being an alumnus of the European Institute of Design in Cagliari and Milan, he started his first production of handmade bags using industrial felt and then experimenting with new materials and fabrics, typical of Sardinian tradition. Her bags are unique pieces, handmade with new and balanced combinations of traditional fabrics, contemporary materials and experimental cuts. Behind each artifact, there lies the study and design of shapes, colour contrasts and juxtapositions of different textures. He crafts buttons shaping clay or by recycling small items. The result is an exclusive handbag collection suitable for different occasions, elegant evening clutches and original computer bags. His production is well-known and sought after for its exclusive nature and exquisite craftsmanship.

The collection

The production of creative Carlo Budroni mainly consists of bags and textile furnishings, such as pillows and decorative panels. The production of bags, characterized by the use of traditional Sardinian fabrics, vary according to the fall/winter and spring/summer collections. Winter collections feature base fabrics, such as Sardinian wool, orbace and black, red, brown and grey velvet. Summer collections feature cotton and linen in light colours. In both productions, graphic, floral and abstract patterns often overlap, using contrasting colours.

The technique

Products are hand-made using different fabrics and materials. The characteristic marks of this production is the use of traditional Sardinian fabrics, woven of traditional handlooms, such as orbace, the sturdy Sardinian wool fabric, and battoro in posta, a white and black motif fabric used for the creation of saddlebags and other traditional artefacts.
