Our Story

ABOUT THE BRAND
...........
Cara Benevenia, LLC, established in December of 2018, is a modern and fashion-forward accessories label designed and manufactured in New Jersey.  Each of Cara Benevenia's accessories feature a one-of-a-kind woven textile handmade by the founder herself, using only the finest leathers carefully selected and imported from Italy.
........
Cara Benevenia LLC is focused on integrity in design, quality materials, and a celebration of local artisans that truly has its roots in the founder's heritage.  Just miles away from the brand's manufacturing headquarters is the very tailor shop that Cara Benevenia's great-grandfather apprenticed after immigrating to the United States from Cantalupo, Italy.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER
.....
Cara Benevenia is our Founder and Designer, a 24 year-old born and raised in New Jersey.  Growing up, she always gravitated towards activities that revolved around the arts; learning how to play the piano at the age of 7 and training as a classical ballet dancer until the age of 15.  When Cara took her first sewing class when she was 12 years old, she knew instantly that she had found her life's passion.  Cara decided to pursue a professional degree from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Apparel Design. 
.....
After graduating college, Cara worked for several design houses, most significant of which was Zac Posen House of Z, where she realized her true passion for the creative integrity of the luxury brand and the importance of celebrating couture fashion artisans.  In December of 2018, Cara began the journey of building her own fashion brand with the establishment of "Cara Benevenia, LLC" in an effort to celebrate her roots in the industry over 100 years ago.
