SINCE 2014

A passion for Italy: land of art, history, style and design.

Who Are The People Behind Elizabetta Boutique?

Elizabeth Perkins

CEO, Founder and Designer

Born in New York City, raised in London and Rome. Formerly an interior designer and color specialist, she lives in the Le Marche region of Italy, where our handbags are made. When she’s not designing scarves and handbags, you’ll find Elizabeth in the kitchen or in the garden.

Cindy Sullivan

Director of U.S. Logistics

The magic behind our speedy and reliable shipping. A former teacher, artist, and business owner, Cindy made her way back to her native Wisconsin after 20 years in upstate New York. Always an art lover and supporter, she enjoys searching for antiques and spending time with her husband and two cats.

Francesca Haack

Director of European Operations

After many years in the airline industry, Elizabeth's daughter joined the family business to help with expansion into the European market. She spent many years in Rome and currently lives in Toulouse, France. Her hobbies include traveling and swing dancing.

History

During a visit to Lake Como in 2003, textile aficionado Elizabeth (Elizabetta, as her friends here in Italy call her) was introduced to the silk scarves and fabrics that the area is historically famous for. A love affair with silk scarves started and in 2004 the boutique was born. Furthermore, Elizabetta has partnered with family-owned small leather workshops whose skills have been passed on for generations to make both timeless and fashionable handbags and briefcases.

Unique Fashion Accessories

We are devoted to supporting family-owned workshops that make everything in small quantities. This means you know you are wearing a unique piece of art and we are dedicated to bringing these fashion accessories to you at uninflated prices. Unlike large companies that make thousands of any one item, we make our accessories in very small quantities. Unique, fresh designs that are always reasonably priced.

Exclusive Products

We often design pieces using end rolls of the highest quality fabrics as we love beautiful textiles and can’t bear to see them sitting on a shelf! We design and manufacture our own exclusive Elizabetta specialty items in addition to bringing you some of Italy’s other luxury 100% Made in Italy designer labels.

Eco-conscious and Fair Labor

Every item in our boutique is made by sweatshop-free, eco-conscious, family-run businesses in Italy. Our leather bags are handmade by small artisan workshops in central Italy. Our scarves, shawls and ties are made by small to medium sized textile mills in northern Italy. These same artisans also produce for famous, high-end fashion houses using the same fabrics and techniques.

“When you wear a fashion accessory from Elizabetta, you know that you are wearing something very special and unique made by people who share our passion. You’re wearing a piece of the passion that is Italy.”
