Italian Fashion: Carpisa
Carpisa was established in 1982 and offers a wide range of fashion handbags, suitcases, briefcases, wallets, and fashion accessories. Carpisa opened its very first store in Napoli, which is also where you will find the company’s headquarters. It has since gone on to open over 300 stores throughout Italy and another 20 locations across the globe including Greece, Japan, The UK, and Switzerland. Just this month there are plans to open up stores in Athens, London, Firenze and Montenegro. Earliet this year, the summer collection featured a colourful specially designed handbag to save the sea turtles and a portion from each bag sold was donated to the “Anton Dohrn” zoological station in Napoli and the Manuel Antonio Natural Reserve in Costa Rica. Currently, Carpisa is featuring Federica Pellegrini, Italian swimmer and Olympic Gold Medalist, for the Fall 2008 advertising campaign. Carpisa and its turtle logo continue to maintain a strong presence in Italy and the world and with new stores opening up every month there are certainly no signs of stopping for this Italian brand.
