The proprietor of ricamafabrics, Rita Camastral, was born and grew up in eastern Switzerland, the traditional textile area of the country. She moved to Brisbane, Australia in the eighties and now calls the Sunshine Capital home.
Rita operated a made-to-measure business in Brisbane for 10 years. In 2004 she established her import and wholesale business ricamafabrics supplying designers, producers and retailers that range in size from small to large firms.
A couple of years ago, the needs of her customers changed, and Rita extended her product range by adding exclusive designs from Italy, France and England to her selection. She regularly visits international Fabric Fairs and keeps in close and regular contact with her suppliers in Europe.
She is able to negotiate the best possible deals for her customers every time. After all, being able to communicate with suppliers on the other side of the globe in their native language makes a whole world of difference.
