This is our first collaboration with artist and graphic designer Elena Toscano.
Elena is an italian artist and illustrator working in Milan. Her work is based on painting in acrylics on canvas and paper. She also works with digital mediums for commisions of textile design and illustration projects.
Elena has worked for 10 years in the fashion and textile industry before starting a year long travel experience on the road which has been a huge source of inspiration for her work.
“The power of nature, its forms, colours and suggestions have been central to her work and have attracted me towards her her art giving me the idea to translate one of her work onto canvas for one of our totes. We both wanted a fresh and joyful palette applied to botanical forms for a tote bag that would see you through summers, all in natural cotton, sturdy and chic. Elena ha also curated and followed for me all the design and production part, with the capable advice of Max and Francesca who produced it in Como, Milan.”
So here is our very special Botanica tote for you: enjoy!
