SUSTAINABLE, TIMELESS ACCESSORIES COLLECTION BASED ON PRINCIPLE OF LOVE AND RESPECT FOR CRAFTSMANSHIP. EACH PIECE IS REALIZED BY HAND, ONE BY ONE, RESCUING TRADITIONAL PROCESSES, TO FINALLY BE TURNED INTO ONE OF A KIND FASHION ACCESSORY IN ITALY.

Alienina collection is 100% made in Italy, from Italian artisans, in the alienina studio where the focus is producing high quality hand crafted products. This attention to detail, combined with the innovative use of the materials define Alienina’s approach and strong aesthetic appeal.

Each piece is hand-made and thus unique. Intentional irregularities or imperfections make the bags singular.Although each model may come in large quantities, there are no two identical pieces among them.
The techniques are inspired by old traditional crafts, which the designer interprets in a contemporary way.

The materials used for alienina collection are natural, organic, eco-friendly cotton ropes. The 60% of the materials are production waste, they were originally produced as cotton wicks for oil lamps.

Alienina's sustainable approach takes into consideration the origin and the type of the used materials, cares for the environment, does not use chemicals, and pays attention to the work conditions.


Alienina was born in 2008 with the aim of inspiring people to discover that items can have an extra life and new functions. Alienina was created to connect people through fashion using sustainability as a lens to transform the way in which people buy and sell fashion from fast fashion to fashion that lasts. Inspiration comes from architecture and at the same time from the natural environment: Alienina collection is composed of soft and tactile pieces, they are architectures to wear with an organic touch.
