Laura Bortolami is born and raised in Italy. In the early 80’s she took a sabbatical year and moved to London. This experience she considered very eye opening for her future to come. During her studies she would go back and forward between London and Paris, were she was inspired by the music and the art in the two cities. After her studies she moved back to Milan to work in the fashion industry.
She enjoys mixing materials when making her handbags and combines different materials, such as mesh with stones, chains, crystal, horn, leather, crocodile, python, feathers, silk, lace, coin and further more. All her pieces are carefully handmade in her atelier in Barcelona.
