Sicily Bag

'Your chance to win a beautiful, artisan, one-off Sicily Bag, handcrafted in Palermo.'

This month we have the pleasure of teaming up with the fabulous brand, Sicily Bag. A boutique company created by fashion-nomad and blogger Nadine (aka ‘Romantique’) and Luigi, a Sicilian artisan who’s been creating coffa bags for many years. Luigi is responsible for handcrafting the traditional and original Sicilian designs in Palermo and Nadine makes them available to the world. 

Here at An Affair with Italy we love Italian craftsmanship and authentic Italian design, as you’ll see in this month's fashion story. We thought we’d bring this gorgeous accessory to our readers by giving away a large Isabella bag (pictured below), courtesy of our friends from Sicily Bag. 

For your chance to win one of these one-of-a-kind coffa bags all you have to do is sign up to our news and travel tips (top right of this page) and tell us why a traditional Sicilian coffa would be the perfect addition to your wardrobe. 

Please email responses to Entries close on February 28th, 2016.

I love the Isabella because I live by the water here in Brisbane the simplicity of the art work with the mirrors and the embroidery work is just incredible.

I would use my Coffa to bring a touch of Italian glamour to my farmer's market shopping trips!

I would love to "show off" a beautiful Sicilian Coffa. My in-laws are from Sicily and they would fall over if they saw I had a bag. The colorful bag would go with all my summer clothes. It's bright, and beautifully handcrafted.
