Sartoria Sorelle Podda was founded in 1980 by Laura, a long-time fashion enthusiast. Being a talented and highly creative woman, she studied and learnt haute couture techniques, developing a personal style over the years. She collaborated with her sister Giannina, an expert embroiderer specialized, in particular, in tulle weaving, typically used for traditional veils, and opened an exclusive atelier. Over the years, they produce several collections inspired by the ancient traditions of their homeland, participating in fashion shows and exhibitions with a positive feedback and appreciation of both customers and experts in the field.
They create wedding gowns, formal dresses, evening dresses and fashion accessories, as well as a home linen collection, paying great attention to details and inspired by tradition. Different collections are designed and dedicated to women, with precious and exclusive charming clothing and accessories. Bed linen recalls the traditional hand-embroidered trousseaux made of natural fabrics.
Works are flawless in every detail, the finishes, the choice of fabrics and the design. Dresses are designed by Lauretta Podda and tailored by the two sisters, with their fine sense of craftsmanship and unparalleled touch. Artifacts are often made of fabrics typical of the Sardinian production, embellished with lace and embroidery. The hand-embroidered cotton tulle, inspired by the veil of traditional attires, is used to create original garments. Silk and brocade are enhanced by coral and silver inserts, embellishing collars, boleros, camisoles and accessories.
