Our Story...

My love for knitwear started when I was a child. My mother taught me the first steps to knit infinite long scarves and I never stopped creating knitted garments from there. I always felt a special attraction for children's knitwear, even before my daughter was born. To create little-handcrafted pieces by different textures and shapes became a true passion for me.


However, It was a long way before creating Sol de Mayo. I come from an Italian family and I spent my childhood in Argentina, where I studied Arts and Textile Design, at the University of Mar de Plata.

I moved to Barcelona to deepen my knowledge of knitwear technology at UPC. After that, I gained a Masters degree in Fashion and Textile at DMU, England. Back to Barcelona, I worked for Inditex group in Spain and then as freelance, always dedicated and ever passionate about knitwear.
Life and love made me move to France ten years ago and in 2013 Sol de Mayo was born.

Pure & simple...

Looking for special original clothes for my daughter, I realised that often knitwear contains a big percentage of chemical fibres, even for expensive brands. Clothes looking old just after the first washing...

That is why I began aiming to create minimalist pieces made exclusively from the finest natural fibres, focused on the details but very comfortables. Children need clothes to feel cozy, but there is no reason to forget about stylish!

Through my collections I am proposing a distinctive style beyond trends, creating exclusive pieces of clothes from the best natural materials, carefully handcrafted and ethically sourced. Beautiful and comfortable, with the timeless charm.

A true blend of luxury with refined simplicity,  that is the essence of Sol de Mayo.
