Caravana Mexico - 2018 Brand Campaign - Collection 2018-2019
CARAVANA was born in 2012, by the founders of Mexican award winning luxury womenswear label, Hacienda Montaecristo. But the Mexican based Italian design duo Francesca Bonato and Jacopo Janniello Ravagnan, had long been dreaming of a new way to reinterpret and revitalize local craftsmanship with a new alchemy and respect. CARAVANA thus arises from the passion of the adventurer’s spirit who ventures into the unknown only to discover their true essence. In 2015 Janniello Ravagnan took the lead on CARAVANA, now heading up the label as both the creative and business director, steering it towards exciting new territories that call to the CARAVANA philosophy and aesthetic.
“CARAVANA believes its artisans, thread makers, fabric knitters and seamstresses are family. The CARAVANA community works harmoniously to give each piece a life, a story, a soul. There is a real sense of respect for the fabrics and materials we use. The mastery of the CARAVANA artisan lies in the ability to transform the fabric into a work of art only using their skilled hands by pulling threads and creating intricate patterns. This dogma is the impetus to lead and organize ground breaking collaborative partnerships that create truly sustainable clothing and accessories.” – Jacopo Janniello Ravagnan
