Cartolina (pronounced “kar·to·lì·na”) translates to “postcard” in Italian.


We founded Cartolina for you and the women whose style you love - your mother, your grandmother, your daughter, your friend, your colleague, and more. Our styles are designed to carry a balance between structure and softness, often leaning towards tailored pieces with a touch of effortless elegance. Each silhouette expresses quiet luxury, a love for travel, and timeless quality. We design clothing that can be passed from one generation to the next, each piece crafting and holding special memories.


Cartolina means “postcard” in Italian. I founded Cartolina as a heartfelt postcard to my late Mother Peggy, who, passed away at the young age of 52. She had a profound love for her children, fashion, travel, and creating cherished memories. It’s the daily memories of her that make Cartolina the brand that it is. 

It is my hope that you can find something special from Cartolina for yourself, your daughter, your Mother and your friends. Here's to celebrating dreams, creativity, and the enduring spirit of women.
