PatBO is a Brazilian brand that captures the vibrant energy of South America through it’s artfully hand-embroidered RTW and Swim Collections.
Born and raised in Brazil, Founder & Creative Director Patricia Bonaldi began her career by opening a multi-brand store in her hometown of Uberlândia. Soon after, she began receiving requests to design her own collection, launching her eponymous label.
Today, the richly detailed embroidery and bold prints that are a hallmark of the label is a perfect example of the brand’s commitment to both technical expertise and boundless imagination. Rather than outsourcing this, Patricia Bonaldi established a school in her hometown for the express purpose of teaching local women this special craft. Today, more than 200 local men and women are empowered by the skills they have acquired.
