CARMINA CAMPUS

Carmina Campus is a luxury accessories brand, founded in 2006 by Ilaria Venturini Fendi. Carmina Campus creates numbered, one-of-a-kind pieces made from re-used materials. The brand retails in luxury stores internationally.

Carmina Campus, one of the very first partners of the Ethical Fashion Initiative, has produced a Made in Africa accessories line with the Ethical Fashion Initiative for many seasons with artisans in Kenya. The Carmina Campus brand contributed directly to capacity building in Kenyan artisans: Italian artisans specialised in luxury accessories making have repeatedly given training to local artisans in Kenya, sharing their expert knowledge.
