In 2006, Daniele Morabito founded Karpeta in Reggio Calabria, located in the southernmost point of Italy, a region rich in ancient traditions and myths once known as Magna Grecia. It is here the land and sea merges, used as a strategic port for explorers sailing the Mediterranean in search of new worlds and was a crossroads for people. Eager to explore new horizons, Daniele’s pioneering soul left to travel the ancient caravan routes. He was inspired by his father - an antique collector- who on his travels would return home with antiques and precious objects from distant places. Daniele subsequently developed a great appreciation for decorative objects and the stories they told.
