Patrizia Camba’s experience in artisanal haute couture started in 1987, when she set up her own atelier in Cagliari. A multifaceted and sensitive personality attracted by the many expressive opportunities that the creation of garments offers, Patrizia consolidated her original style free from artistic patterns, thus constantly renewing it with every new inspiration without any preconceptions. The common thread is the tale of the world of women and Sardinia, an island that preserves traditions and offers continuous material, chromatic and symbolic ideas. Her sophisticated line of accessories draws on the plain black and white textures used for saddlebags which, according to tradition, are shaped and juxtaposed to full damasks and velvet with rich colors by simple and essential cuts, thus enhancing their beauty by contrast. A well-known artist in the regional creative scenario, she promotes her creations in her showroom/studio in the centre of Cagliari and in the charming shop where she also has a significant selection of the best items of local artisan crafts.
Her personal and unique line of handbags and fashion accessories which use the traditional Sardinian fabrics and colour effects, is offered in many models and variants and is designed to enrich and customise different styles. Her tailoring is sought after for the sophisticated and original tailor-made wedding dresses, designed and sewn with the utmost care given to every single detail. In addition, there is an important pret-à-porter line, unique models studied individually and realised with clear-cut, essential lines, characterised by originality and great care down to the smallest of details.
The tailoring process is entirely carried out by hand, starting from the preliminary sketch, the development of the pattern, the cutting, the actual sewing and the finishing touches. The staff's high professionalism guarantees timely realisation.
