WHERE OUR STORY BEGINS
Our story begins in 2009 when Marina falls in love with a beautiful hidden space in the heart of Milan. She has accomplished her “life goals” – raising two children, successfully running the family business – and she believes that in this inspiring space she can finally pursue her passion: create beautiful interiors using fabrics, colors and linens
LOOKING FOR EXCELLENCE
Marina starts by researching fabrics and old embroideries and looking for craftsmen who can bring her ideas to life with utmost perfection.
The craftsmen are the same working for the big companies well known in the industry and are usually “unreachable” but due to the crisis they are becoming more flexible and available to listen to the requests of this demanding lady.
A DREAM COME TRUE
Marina’s dream is shaping up – the first samples are being produced and the first sales are being made: linens for a mansion in Ibiza, for a yacht in the Netherlands, for a boutique hotel in Venice. Marina is quickly swamped by the activity and can’t take care of everything. At this time there is an unexpected encounter: Elena, old school mate and good friend, after years spent in international marketing in Silicon Valley, Paris and London makes the decision to move back to Milan and dive into this adventure. Finally Marina can be completely devoted to product research, design and production, while Elena makes sure that the products are globally marketed.
Today at MarinaC we design and produce linens for residential, hotels and yachts which are simply “effortlessly chic”.
Every fabric, every color combination, every embroidery is selected and carried out with one idea in mind: satisfy and surprise who enters our world.
100% MADE IN MILANO
Experienced craftsmen – all in the Milan area – are cutting, sewing, embroidering the linens that will soon be laid on your bed or on your table – with the care and passion of people who work with their hands and with their heart.
IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS
All our fabrics are cut “on the grain” which means that the product will keep its perfect shape also after many wash cycles. The “mitred corner” translates to a perfect look on the front as on the back.
