Carbotti was established in 1956 in Martina Franca in the southern region of Apulia. Due to the brand's longstanding collaboration with excellent suppliers and the great care taken for each product, Carbotti bags have become sort of a cult" for craftsmanship and Made in Italy design.
Each handbag is entirely made by hand in Italy with the best materials out there, including calfskin and kidskin leather, as well as fabrics and attractive metal fittings. The Carbotti collection is designed by talented Italian stylists in close collaboration with its manufacturing bureau.
Apulia, the ‘heel’ of Italy, is one of the richest archaeological lands in the entire country. During the 8th century BC, this area became a Greek colony.
With the longest coastline in all of mainland Italy, Apulia is a top summer destination. The southern area of Salento boasts spectacular beaches and unique traditions. Lecce, known as the Florence of the South, is an open-air museum with its Baroque architecture. Polignano a Mare charms with its cliffside views, while the ‘trulli’ of Alberobello in the Itria Valley are a must-see.
With 60 million olive trees, Apulia supplies around 40% of Italy’s olive oil. Other regional specialties include meat bombette, panzerotto, and pasticciotto.
