The founder of Carl Scarpa was a cousin of the famous Italian architect “Carlo Scarpa”, one of the most important architects of the twentieth century. Undoubtedly, they shared many creative genes from the same gene pool. Today this gifted heritage and Italian tradition for quality and design lives on in Carl Scarpa’s name. One remarkable outcome of his love affair with Ireland was the opening, of his first international shop, in Sligo, Ireland in 1974. This was an instant success and quickly his collections became known for sophisticated Italian style and design detail. He firmly believed that a woman should buy her shoes first and then compliment them with the rest of her outfit.
