Carola fra I Trulli
Ostuni, Italy | Home Fragrances
Carola fra i Trulli is a tribute to the Itria Valley, its native flora and its perfumes. An authentic territory, dotted with the white pinnacles of the trulli, ancient agricultural shelters, today transformed into well-kept country retreats for conscious contemporary nomads, just like Trulli La Pietraia, a charming residence in the Ostuni countryside created in 2015 by Carola Altamura and chosen as the scenario of the eponymous line of home fragrances.
Based on a design by Carola, the trullo, from place, becomes an iconic object, declined in a candle holder and diffuser holder version, entirely handmade in small limited and numbered series by the Master Ceramist of Grottaglie Franco Fasano, reinterpreting the traditional Apulian macchiato technique in new chromatic variations.
Conceived using only natural materials, the collection of ceramic trulli is completed with a selection of vegetal wax candles and glass diffusers both freely combinable that release refined olfactory bouquets. The debut fragrance, Fig leaves, simple and elegant, evoke the intense scents of the fields after a long sunny day, is the result of collaboration with a renowned French fragrance company. The packages are made of recycled cardboard and raw linen, to help preserve our environment through a conscious and sustainable design, respectful of the inseparable link between craftsmanship and territory.
