Three sisters, one dream. That is the reality of Rosy, Angela and Rita.
They were born and raised in a small town in southern Italy. A place where, to find opportunities, young people need to leave their homes and try their luck in a bigger city.
Contrary to all predictions, the sisters decided to stay and create their own luck, thus fulfilling a dream: to open their company in their hometown and stay close to their family.
In Santeramo in Colle, their hometown, Rosy, Angela and Rita, founded Cartoser, a small company specialised in the creation of handcrafted packaging.
Each box is handmade with love and dedication by the artisans Angela and Rita, while Rosy welcomes the customers.
For them, every customer provides the source that does not let their dream go extinct. Every project proves that their effort is always worth it.
Rosy, Angela and Rita are an example of women who are strong, determined and passionate about their job and who strive to value their region.
