Kilesa is an Italian luxury brand that produces Made in Italy bags and accessories made exclusively of fine leathers. In 2014 the eclectic Italian entrepreneur Bianca Imbembo founded Kilesa with the intent to communicate to other women through her creations and to create a project in which the passion for fashion, her Neapolitan roots and her creative and volcanic personality converge.
Each woman carries her world in the bag she wears and on this awareness Bianca built the Kilesa universe. A universe made of elegance, femininity and courage. A work driven by passion, desire for innovation and continuous research.
The name Kilesa draws inspiration from Oriental philosophy, in which the “Kilesa” are the mental obstacles that the human being encounters in an attempt to achieve a set goal. Only courage, the desire for freedom and a strong and resilient spirit can allow overcoming these obstacles and these are the characteristics of mind that constantly guide the work of the Kilesa universe.
The representative symbol is therefore the lotus flower, which is able to regenerate and thrive in conditions of adversity, just as women can shine even in the midst of difficulties, thanks to their innate vital energy.
Kilesa is thus a tribute to women, to their magical and sacred power and to their ability to spread so much beauty and strength. A brand in which all women recognize themselves, because all women are Kilesa women.
MADE IN ITALY
Kilesa bags are small pieces of art created by the hands of skilled Neapolitan artisans, the result of an incessant search for individuality and beauty.
Each bag represents a multifaceted and contemporary soul.
Each product is in fact designed and manufactured by combining trends from the catwalks of the most important fashion weeks with the historic craftsmanship of Campania, in a balance between tradition and innovation that aims to enhance the excellence of the area.
Kilesa has always carried out its work in the fashion sector through production processes compatible with environmental protection, respect for natural resources and the enhancement of raw materials.
Attention and respect for the environment become the protagonists of the FW 2020/2021 collection, for which the EcoBag Kilesa was created with felt made from recycled plastic and natural colours of leather.
