Born and raised amidst knitting needles, crochet hooks and balls of wool, Rita Bochicchio turned the passion for yarns that she inherited from her mother into a business. She trained with Graziella Guidotti, a famous expert in Italian textile culture. All the weaving is done on manual looms but, in addition to the use of ancient techniques, Rita constantly experiments with new methods and pursues her many other passions, including recycling, sewing, crocheting and knitting. All yarns are 100% natural: bamboo and nettle fibers, hand-dyed linen and silk and organic cotton, with which she makes stoles, scarves and fabrics, but also table runners and bags.
