Find Out More About Altara
To remember and honour the identities of the women that inspire us and whose stories we wish to celebrate, we have named each piece of jewellery after a female pioneer at the forefront of Italian history.
Our 'animalier' necklace is named after the wonderful Edina Altara, the Sardinian born artist, illustrator, ceramicist and fashion designer.
Altara had a multi-faceted career as an artist, which ranged from painting traditional Sardinian scenes, illustrating covers of high-fashion magazines, to decorating children's books and toys. She placed great significance on the fine details within her works, inviting viewers to engage in the subtleties of her portrayals to address issues such as female identity and the fluidity of gender.
