Our design philosophy is simple; combine the best of British design with the best of Italian craftsmanship

OUR
HISTORY

On the 25th May 1947, at the Termi di Caracalla in Rome, Franco Cortese created history by becoming the first Grand Prix winner for Ferrari in his Spider 125. An iconic moment that is celebrated in Caracalla’s name.

Founded in the UK in 2005, Caracalla creates luxury luggage and accessories for those who appreciate quality and good design. Taking inspiration from the golden age of motorsport but not restricted by it, we work collaboratively with partners in all fields and industries, to create bespoke collections that will fit car boots, yachts and lifestyles.

Working closely with Tuscan tanneries and one of the best Florentine ateliers, Caracalla’s pieces are beautiful and practical, sourcing the best materials including the finest leathers and Italian woollens and Scottish cashmeres.

Caracalla designs are understated and elegant, and while forward looking, we are always aware of our heritage.

OUR<br>LEATHER

OUR
LEATHER

At Caracalla we use only the very best material. We select calf shoulder hides sourced from French cattle, as they are cared for and reared in well-kept fields.

Selected and colour graded by an experienced hand and eye, ensuring only the finest materials are chosen for the crafting of each and every item. Because of a preference for 100% natural grain leathers, a deeper inspection is required using very strong lights to show up any imperfections hidden to the naked eye. Only when the leather has passed these stringent quality checks is it passed for approval.

The strong and durable polyester thread with high-breaking strength and optimum stretch characteristics features in all items. High performance standards are essential and it's interesting to note the same quality thread is used in the manufacture of seat belts and air bags.

Our selected tannery is based in the Tuscan district of Santa Croce sull' Arno, renowned for its artisans which use only quality vegetable-tanned leather and traditional methods and finishes to produce the finest leather.
