The Kitty Olive collection is the product of research and ongoing work with the arts and crafts people of Nisa. The collection, launched in 2015, is inspired by the rich traditional patterns of this small rural town in Portugal. In collaboration with a master craftswoman, Kitty Oliveira has created and adapted original motifs that combine traditional techniques and modern design using floral patterns and a vibrant colour palette. The bags and clutches are handmade with 100% wool felt embroidery applications, 100% cotton fabric interiors, handles in wicker or vintage lacquered metal and magnetic clasps. With a soft and pleasant touch, wool felt is highly durable and retains its colour and properties over time. The material is recyclable and environmentally friendly.
