Handmade and All Your Own

by Danilo Brunetti

Discover the finely crafted original creations of two local artisans- and learn their secrets

Just a stone’s throw from Piazza Navona, Macrilia is a dynamic showroom and laboratory born from the passion of two Roman women who have created a high-profile brand of bags exclusively Made in Italy. Handbags and purses are the indisputable stars of the show, but the shop stocks many other styles of bag, such as pochettes, backpacks, and folders, alongside other leather accessories like wallets, bracelets, and belts, all sparkling and colorful, but at the same time elegant and chic. Each piece reflects the artistic personalities of the owners, as well as their passion for playing with light and color contrasts and their dedication to creative play. The owners are artisans, every object on sale is handmade, meaning everything, from the shape to the color of the object, is customizable to suit the shopper’s taste.

The careful attention to detail and the high quality of materials used are two other aspects that set this shop apart from the crowd. All of the leathers and other materials that go into each creation are selected from the best Italian tanneries and companies, making the bags not only beautiful but one-of-a-kind and precious. 

The exquisite bags are often so inspiring to shoppers that Macrilia has begun organizing workshops to give their clients the chance to create unique accessories with their own hands and give space to their own creativity. These craftsmanship workshops focus on the entire process of the creation of a personalized leather object. Participants will start from their ideation, then move on to the design, and finally to the cutting and realization of the model, having the opportunity to customize it and bring it home as a truly unique souvenir.
