The Women Behind The Bags
We created our handbags getting inspired by extraordinary women, who for us constitute true real-life influencers.
Below you will be able to read their stories: please tell us yours! Every month we will select the most beautiful story in order to publish it on this section of our website and on our social media channels.
THe woman of the month
Savita is an international lawyer and political economist who has worked globally with international law firms, multinational corporations, inter-governmental institutions and regulatory bodies. She also sits on the board of public listed companies as an independent director.
Whilst UK and Malaysia are both her homes, Kashmir and Singapore are also close to her heart and heritage.
A barrister in both her home countries and a polyglot, after practicing law for several years, her urge to give back translated in her commitment to advance thought leadership and champion the United Nations' sustainable development goals - which she is passionate about - as an independent international consultant.
Savita, recently launched on social media a platform known as “Tea Horse Silk and Gold [THSG]” where she connects with global leaders and entrepreneurs to enable critical thinking and action towards positive change and social impact for a sustainable world. In her words: "THSG is a huge commitment to champion but it is truly my passion and one that I will pursue for years to come”.

Livia and Maria
Livia is the daughter of an amazing woman: Maria. Maria is the boss of a core function of a multinational group in Milan, a pectore fashion influencer and - from my point of view - a great comedian. She has a creative spirit and a colourful soul - expressed in her amazing outfits, which often are a mixture of Japanese and retrò - chic style - , a huge beautiful smile, and talks fast like the strong wind in her region of origin: Sicily.
Her daughter Livia is a strong child who never stops in the face of adversity. A girl whose doctor described her nature as "a bit impetuous, precipitous, and very obstinate" - exactly the character of Studio Tondini’s women!
This is why we want to celebrate our women and have chosen to give our first collection Livia's name, who - just like her Mum, is such a strong representative of our core values!
Maria is the first official Studio Tondini social media ambassador. We share the vision that luxury goods shall have a true value; it's not just about the highest quality of the components, rather, it is about the passion, the know - how, and the experience of the skilled hands and minds that shaped each item with true care and love. Proudly finest, just like the work of the professional woman carrying our handbags
Two brave women,
valiant, strong and obstinate.
