Romaria is a fashion and lifestyle collective where luxury meets comfort. Designing easy to wear, complimentary, trans-seasonal knitwear pieces, their work is identified by the application of exclusive patterns, which are dreamt up in collaboration with a diverse mix of artists and designers. Consisting of natural fibres and remarkable stitch games, all items are slowly and sustainably prepared on a small scale.
The label was established in South Africa, in 2019, with European influence, by design duo, Carla Pinto and Zydia Botes as a collaborative venture to create effortlessly cool statement pieces that we wear ourselves. Fitting for a brand that believes in interconnectedness and the art of ‘weaving’ together towards a better designed and sustainable future, the name ‘Romaria’ derives from Carla’s Portuguese roots which translates to ‘pilgrimage’ or moving forward together.
