THE STORY

In the charming atmosphere of the ancient village of Pallanza, along Maggiore Lake, you can find my lab.
This space, hidden in a small courtyard, is part of a house that belongs to my family since several generations. For me it is a magical place, to which I’m emotionally related, where past memories are inspirational sources for my work.
I’ve always been a creative mind, I studied fashion in Milan before moving to London for a few years.
Once I get back to Italy, I decided to completely devote myself to my project and that’s how it comes the idea of ​​turning this veranda in a laboratory dedicated to the creation of unique handmade hats, a perfect combination of craftsmanship and design, tradition and experimentation.
The direct contact with the material is the most important moment and the greatest inspiration, I don’t actually know exactly how the creation will be until this phase is complete. I love to shape fabrics as if they were clay, creating sophisticated and versatile structures.
I chose to take an independent path, supporting the "Made in Italy" and favoring the creation of entirely handmade hats, whose artisanal work is a guarantee of authenticity.
Those who came in contact with my hats claims that have a soul and I like to think so.

EXPERIENCES WITH CARLOTTA

YOUR BESPOKE EVENING HAT

Carlotta, milliner

240

To open the doors of a workshop means to unveil the most intimate secrets of a craftsman. A small world in which ideas are shaped by the most valuable tool that we have, our hands. And this will be our starting point. Through a tactile experience we will understand how to identify the key features of different fabrics. Every participant will challenge his creativity producing a bespoke evening hat. Starting from one of the fabrics proposed, you can choose to work with a base-made pattern or to adopt a fully-manual technique like the Moulage. Both methods will be explained and shown during the workshop. Moreover, I will show you some handling technique through which you can shape fabrics in order to give an even more personalized touch to your creation. The experience will last the whole day, from the morning until the afternoon. Timing are flexible, I will do what I can to meet your personal needs and requests. A buffet - lunch is scheduled on the fresh porch facing a wide garden.

To open the doors of a workshop means to unveil the most intimate secrets of a craftsman. A small world in which ideas are shaped by the most valuable tool that we have, our hands. And this will be our starting point. Through a tactile experience we will understand how to identify the key features of different fabrics. In particular we will analyze the potential of jute, a natural fiber, 100% biodegradable and recyclable, lightweight, durable and very malleable. Together we will explore this amazing malleability and we will discover how to create a unique and precious object with a material which is considered "poor". Every participant will challenge his creativity producing a bespoke hat. Starting with an off-cut of jute you can choose to work with a base-made pattern or to adopt a fully-manual technique like the Moulage. Both methods will be explained and shown during the workshop. The experience will last the whole day, from the morning until the afternoon. Timing are flexible, I will do what I can to meet your personal needs and requests.
