TU, the bags « Made in Italy »
As the picture of an artist, every TU bag has the peculiarity to be unique. Because they wished to make of their creations an art work, the designers of the brend opted for a Haute Couture inspiration. We owe this innovation to three women already well bound by the life. Federica d’Ascia and Mariagiovanna Riccio are old friends, and become allied to Saveria d’Ascia, sister-in-law of the first one, for bringing at the heart of TU three artistic signatures sharing the same patriotic values, their taste for luxury and their femininity. They offer to their customers the promise of a bag of quality, hand-made, with the label of “Made in Italy” ! TU clearly found his sources from its origins. Livened up by a well pronounced Italian DNA, it is from their common passion for Naples and for the Art that arise their creations. Muse of their inventions, the city of Naples attributes a real guideline to the brend. In their creations, we can find some contrasts between the Italian Baroque and the Rock. Besides having a well pronounced artistic personality, TU use noble materials, what strengthens this idea of uniqueness and of magnificence. The universe of their collection propels us at the heart of the Roman architecture of the XVIIIth century, modernized and sublimated by the preciosity of the items designed in limited edition. Some of their bags are real jewels of hand (Cf: collection Narciso, numbered edition) ! More than an accessory aiming to accompanying a dress, TU’s bag is a precious item, a work of art, created to innovate in the domain of fashion and to sublimate women !
