Get to know the Capittanas that inspire us:
I REALLY VALUE THE POSSIBILITY OF WORKING AND HAVING MY FAMILY CLOSE, SO I CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MY TIME AND SHARE MOMENTS WITH THEM. THE SUPPORT THAT CAPITTANA GIVES ME TO RAISE MY FAMILY MOTIVATES ME TO CONTINUE WORKING. I LOVE ALL THEIR PRODUCTS.
It makes me happy that I can have time for my children and work here at Capittana. I like to see the final work in photos and also in the clients. My favorite pieces are the one-pieces with crochet details.
Working with Capittana allows me to do what I enjoy without leaving aside my duties with my family. Me gusta el valor que adquieren los productos con todos los detalles hechos a mano.
I like to work in confection. It motivates me to see that my pieces are being used by different people in the world. I love how the one-pieces look and the details that give it value, like crochet.
