Rosita Bonita is the glamorous alter-ego of designer Rowenna Harrison, born in the balmy spring of 2010 after some fruitful screen-printing tests on leather. The resulting prints - delicate drawings of bounteous fruits, blooming blossom & feasting hummingbirds - once carefully cut out and collaged together - became the first Rosita Bonita collection, Orchard.
A life long love of drawing and making have equiped the designer with a unique visual language, teamed with an experimental and hands-on approach to materials and techniques, which have forged Rosita Bonita a distinct and alluring identity, charming customers, press & stockists ever since.
Inspiration comes from glamorous fantasies of past times & faraway lands, & encompasses icons of folklore, myth & legend. With these influences, and a pervading sense of dreamy fun, Rosita Bonita creates tactile printed leather statement jewellery, which is at once nostalgic & novel.
Each piece of Rosita Bonita printed leather jewellery is lovingly handcrafted in our studio, in the seaside town of Margate, England. Original illustrations are screen-printed or foil-embossed onto fine leathers & carefully assembled into unique & collectable treasures.
