About Us

Welcome to Madda&Co, a brand that stands for fashion that promotes far more than style, a purpose. We want to contribute to a (r)evolution that has already started…the one that will finally bring quality back into the closet of regular women.

Our handbags are designed to be products of functional fashion; and we stand for luxury that means quality. Our goal is to provide Italian quality handbags carefully designed and made in Italy. We want to give a woman the confidence in her ability to achieve her goals in style. That is why we provide products that are timeless, trustworthy, Italian-quality investments for the modern woman, from the soccer field to the boardroom: Ambitious handbags for the ambitious woman, made to last.



We are a team of ambitious women. We are designers, bloggers, mothers, students, merchandisers. We work together to help each other succeed as a fashion company looking to give the mothers, young professionals, fashion lovers, and the all around multi-tasking ambitious woman a product she can trust.


A bag is just a bag until you take it somewhere…

A Brief History

As women, we all know what it’s like to lug around all of our necessities in either an oversized bag that feels more like a suitcase with a shoulder strap or to carry around multiple bags. We understand the nerve-wracking sensation to frantically search for that one item that has seemingly vanished inside the unorganized, bottomless pit of a handbag we tend to settle for.

Maddalena Palermo, founder of Madda&Co. was one of these women and realized that there has to be a solution to this dilemma. From the time she was a student in Milan, also working as a personal shopper, she too struggled with having to carry around multiple handbags throughout the day and into the night. Her inspiration derived from her frustration regarding this matter and she started to investigate bags that could possibly solve for this. She then took matters into her own hands and designed the Ambitious Elegance combo bag – tote and clutch.
