The artisan

After a career in the business sector, Grazia De Vita decided to follow her creative instinct, so she specialised in cutting and tailoring and in 2003 set up her own handicraft business mainly centred on embroidered fabrics and wood-based work. This new and distinctive production is focused on the processing of cork fabric, one of the most distinctive natural materials of the island, which she uses to create a line of bags and home accessories enhanced by brightly coloured embroidery. Thanks to her outgoing personality, Grazia promotes her creations in her shop in Cagliari, in the central district of San Benedetto, and in the Costa Smeralda tourist area, in San Pantaleo, during the summer, as well as in numerous craft fairs and itinerant trade shows.

The collection

Grazia De Vita’s collection offers a variety of bags of different sizes made of cork fabric combined with leather, synthetic leather and other fabrics, often enriched by means of sophisticated and original decorative embroidery finishes. Her production also features a series of home accessories made of fabrics and cork fabrics embroidered with motifs inspired by the island tradition.

The technique

All of Grazia De Vita’s creations are handcrafted with artisanal cutting, tailoring and embroidery performed using a hand-operated sewing machine, creatively using and selecting materials for ever-changing combinations.
