Born and raised in Brazil, Patricia opened a multi-brand store in her hometown of Uberlândia. Soon after, she began receiving requests to design her own collection. This cemented a brand inspired by couture embroideries and intricate beading.
PatBO ignites imagination and provokes real emotions of desire, excitement and a sense of beauty. Each item is hand touched. Each experience is a living story. Sewn together, stitch by stitch.
The richly detailed embroidery that is a hallmark of Patricia Bonaldi’s designs is a rarity in Brazil, as it is now in much of the world. This kind of meticulous handwork is most often found in haute couture, one of the last bastions of such laborious artisanal techniques. It’s a perfect example of the brand’s commitment to both technical expertise and boundless imagination in every aspect of its creations.
Rather than outsourcing this important component of her business to experienced workers in other countries, Patricia established an atelier in her hometown of Uberlândia for the express purpose of keeping this special craft alive. More than 400 local women are now able to support their families because of the skills they have acquired there. They imbue each piece with their dedication and passion, understanding that even the tiniest details matter. The designs they help create are a beautiful reflection of their spirit: authentic, emotional, vital.
