the marano bag

The Marano Bag is making it’s debut more than 10 years after the first bag was created. It has its own story based on memories inspired by the countryside of upstate New York to the country club lifestyle in Greenwich, Ct and the whimsical seaside of Westport, Ct. The Marano Bag’s legacy, being one of the very first trend-setting totes made out of coffee sacs, made its way inside stores and catologues of Williams Sonoma.

“A nostalgic childhood growing up along the countryside inspires me to create using my visions of nature. Autumn leaves, white winters, blooming lilacs and pastures of daffodil are not only vivid memories but feelings of warmth and comfort. Through meditation and the gift of such beautiful memories, I create art of serenity and calm using soothing colors,” says Marano.  Ocean scenes, waves, blushed landscapes, simplistic florals and pink abstracts are Marano’s signature pieces.
