We all know the Amalfi Coast to be majestic. And if that’s the case, then imagine just how mesmerising its boutiques can be? Amidst the great traditional food and enjoying aperitifs while soaking in the card postal, there is a strong element of the renowned Italian style heritage that’s present.
Italy is one of the greatest fashion countries in the world, with years of tradition in proudly making excellent quality garments. Being in the cosmopolitan Amalfi, it is essential to blend in with your attire. Farella Capri is a boutique that lives on traditional techniques like handsewing and artisanal knits. It is run by a team of women who continue to make chic knitwear designs.
The secret ingredient behind this brand’s soft and comfortable items is love. For more than thirty years, artisans have been diving into the skill of weaving to make intimate and valuable pieces. As Farella Capri states, the women of the company sew stories ”made to be loved, to be kept, to be cared for.”
Cashmere, wool, cotton. All these beloved, natural textiles are used for Farella Capri clothes and accessories. They are made locally in the famous Mediterranean island. We are particularly obsessed with the cashmere vests in various colours which complement chic yet perhaps boyish outfits.
If you want to leave Capri with one purchase for memorabilia purposes, we suggest looking into Farella’s crochet bags. With their added value for being handmade and having a personal sense, these bags are perfect for the summer. From the beach to a cozy morning brunch, an aesthetic of uniqueness will be transmitted.
