Inspired by glamorous fantasies of past times and faraway lands; icons of folklore; myths & legends, Rosita Bonita illustrative pieces combine vintage glamour with a sense of dreamy fun. From bountiful fruits to feasting hummingbirds and mystical mermaids, these whimsical illustrations - each printed on leather - are at once nostalgic and novel.
Lovingly handcrafted in Casa Bonita, their East London studio, each piece starts off as an original Rosita Bonita illustration. Screen-printed pieces are made from separate elements - each printed individually onto soft colored leathers, hand cut and assembled into unique treasures. Foil embossed beauties are laser cut or hand stamped with specially shaped knives, then heat pressed with metallic foil and embossing stamps, made from Rosita Bonita’s own drawings.
Opposed to the disposable nature of fashion, Rosita Bonita does not discontinue her collections, making them available to order year after year. And why would they. Each piece brings a touch of magic, transforming the mundane with a dash of the frivolous fun of dressing up.
