two years have passed since designers marcella foschi and marta de faveri stumbled across the business practices of italian beach furniture conglomerate ombrellificio magnani. among the company’s pursuits, was the collection of ‘seasoned’ umbrellas from clients’ beach resorts. once gathered, the parasols would be brought back to their facilities and be re-dressed with new fabric. nothing wrong with that; except they were throwing hundreds of mildly-used fabrics directly into the landfill.

with some minor persuasion, the two convinced ombrellificio magnani to re-route the fabrics from the bin to their studio, and rimini rimini was born. focusing primarily on nostalgic, hand-made beach bags and backpacks made with whatever happened to be ‘seasoned’ that day. the collection ranges from classic blue with white stripes, to old-fashioned patterns, to the occasional funky palette — all sewn and paired with nautical ropes and floats. rimini rimini is about the celebration of summertime; with all of its long days of sunshine and sand castles, teenage love stories born by the seaside, and everything in-between.
