Product Scoop || Cruciani Bracelets

August 07, 2013

I saw these bracelets in a store in Madrid and was so intrigued.  The colors were so vibrant and lively and the designs were adorable.....I didn't realize how big they are, as in "you need some asap".  Friends, these are "IN".  Have I been living under a rock?  or is it just a European thing?  Well, my mom coincidentally sent me this article about them where I learned that the bracelet has a celebrity cult following like Heidi Klum.

Cruciani, is the Italian company behind these cuties. And as all unique products out there, they have a heartwarming story of how they came to be.  Cruciani's parent company used to make traditional lace tablecloths, curtains, and bed linens after World War II.  And being at the verge of having to close down they had the idea of using this macrame bits to sell as bracelets.  They recently expanded into the U.S., starting with a corner in Barneys last February (major seal of approval in my book).

Cute right?  Barney's sells them here. They range from $10 to $20 depending on the design making them perfect for a little gift or for small little treat for yourself.  I'm always watching your back....making sure you know what's on trend.
