The story of the birth of the line telavela is a story of friendship, different paths before, and lucky meetings then, an idea that suddenly explodes and that quickly find is own way.
The idea of our first woman’s bag, the shopping bag that inspired the whole TELAVELA’s collection, born during an holiday sailing, towards Cinque Terre and Portofino, in Liguria. While CABBdesign was already a reality, we were looking for something new and original that could distinguish our project, during relaxing moments, attended to anchovies and Ligurian wine.
By boat, the most beautiful emotions are simple and punctuated by nature,by the sea with his colors,by the smell of freedom and the sound of the wind, by the power of the sails, so tense and resistant, so necessary to keep going. that’s how ideas born! using canvas sails to achieve women’s bags, beautiful, durable, so comfortable and beautiful to want to wear them all day long. Bags suitable for women a bit ‘like us, curious, sports, dynamic and always in a hurry. Initially this insight comes from the woman’s bag made with spinnaker cloth and typically sailors details.
The first bags, in one shape and two colours, liked very much, so we fix the route finding our direction.
So is born TELAVELA collection, a line of handbags, travel bags and accessories made with sailcloth boats, so resistant, with a marine vocation with an innovative design.
The line is designed by Laura Baldi, while production is entrusted to workshops of locals artisans, which have a long experience in the processing of certain marine materials. It is a tradition of our territory, but in general it is an experience that enhances the value of craftsmanship made in Italy, so much appreciated in the world.
The line TELAVELA born from love for the sea and for the cities of Liguria, a difficult and beautiful land, squeezed between the mountains and the immensity of the sea. The names we choosed for our creations are a tribute to our beautiful neighborhood , as Manarola, Portovenere, the islands Tino and Tinetto and the beautiful old town of Tellaro. There are many other, equally beautiful, which will inspire us soon for new TELAVELA creations.
