Romaria was established in South Africa with European influence. Founded in 2019 by us - design duo, Carla Pinto and Zydia Botes - as a collaborative venture to create effortlessly cool statement pieces that we wear ourselves.
The name ‘Romaria’ derives from Carla’s Portuguese roots which translates to ‘pilgrimage’ or moving forward together, fitting for a brand that believes in interconnectedness and the art of ‘weaving’ together towards a better designed and sustainable future.
WHAT WE DO
Romaria is a fashion and lifestyle collective where luxury meets comfort.
We don't chase seasons or trends.
We design easy to wear knitwear pieces that connect to the next, intended to be complimentary and to treat you right throughout all seasons.
Spot our work by the application of exclusive patterns which are dreamt up in collaboration with a diverse mix of artists and designers.
All items are slowly, meticulously and sustainably prepared on a small scale in South Africa consisting of remarkable stitch games.
The raw cotton material used to knit our items are mainly sourced from local cotton farmers who are BCI accredited.
Quality is at the heart of Romaria's values.
