Le Annine x BE Tabacchine Headpiece - One of a Kind
Le Annine x Bottega Egnazia
We have started a collaboration with incredibly creative Annalisa and Maria Grazia, mother and daughter, women from Salento and talented artisans who have created unique headpieces to pay tribute to the women of Puglia.
The idea is simple: to explore the lives of women in this region, to embrace these arts that sadly do not exist anymore and translate it into wearable pieces, entirely hand made from scratch.
"Le Tabacchine": fierce women who would break their backs each day picking tobacco leaves in Salento, Southern Puglia. Women were essential in the harvest: with their little hands they were fast and agile. The job was tough....so they would sing - they would sing whilst they worked, they would sing as they walked to the fields, they would sing on the way home...so as to not fall asleep.
