Our story

The Sofia Castegren collection is about simple, feminine elegance that always has a sense of play. 

Designed in Portofino area in Italy and made in Europe, luxury silk scarves and design-led homewares conjure up a chic cafe bar or romantic encounter in cobbled streets. 

With whimsical illustration and a painterly stroke, she captures the essence of what beautiful, everyday goods of exceptional quality can be. 



As a young girl in Italy, Sofia discovers that drawing and illustrating makes her feel calm. It’s a way for her to make sense of the world around her. Memories and experiences develop into characters in her own imagination. 

Over time, this love of drawing takes Sofia on travels to Milan, London and Amsterdam where she gains work experience in different situations, always founded in good design. 

Inspired by her Italian heritage, Sofia finds that the quality of Italian silk adds luxury and simplicity to an outfit and experiments with ways to wear a scarf. Inspired by a pastel colour palette and drawing on inspiration from architecture, nature and historical periods her own collection emerges.

Sofia seeks to bring beautiful, fresh colour, elegance and personality to scarves and everyday items, always hoping to add quality and a smile to everyday life.
