Alla Carta is a bi-annual international publication that approaches high-end fashion, art and design in a unique Italian way. We truly believe in paper, carta in Italian. At a time when the web may appear to be the only valid avenue of communication, Alla Carta is an ode to the most precious of mediums and to the most precious moment of the day: our interviews always take place around a table, to celebrate one of the oldest Italian habits, conviviality.
Alla Carta Piatti CollectionAlla Carta collaborates with one of the most important artisans in the ceramics district of Santo Stefano di Camastra (Sicily): Fratantoni Ceramiche, founded in 1935. Starting from the “brush technique”, a typical Sicilian craft, we created the Piatti collection, a celebration of one of Sicily’s most precious traditions, an ancient craftsmanship to preserve and perpetuate.

Alla Carta Tovaglioli Collection (Limited Edition)Alla Carta collaborates with The Napking by Bellavia Ricami, a family-run business founded in Palermo in 1961 and a master in linen and cotton embroideries, and French illustrator Claire Duport giving birth to a collection that transfors napkins into tiny pieces of art. Each piece of the Alla Carta Tovaglioli collection is realized in the finest linen and refined in the minutest detail. The vibrant relief embroideries give a sense of playfulness to the sight and to the touch. This is a limited edition collection: each napkin is produced in 10 pieces. A wider range inspired by the Tovaglioli collection will be on our store and selected shops worldwide starting from September.
