Inspired by loss & a love for the Italian coast ♡
CARINA means cute/pretty in Italian, and their accessories are just that.
CARINA started as a passion project during the COVID-19 pandemic when a first-generation mother + daughter duo was unable to travel to Liguria, Italy where their late father and husband was from - he unfortunately passed away from cancer in 2015.
As they daydreamed of the Riviera, they realized that cute accessories with Italian sayings didn't exist, so they designed their own line of vegan leather accessories inspired by the colors of the Italian coast.
CARINA has grown into a successful e-commerce and retail business. In an effort to minimize fashion waste, each collection is limited.
