Madeleine Cranfill, the CEO, is a sensualist: She doesn’t wear a dress, she experiences it. “Silk is woven metamorphosis. Its effects are pure light. When you wear Thai silk, the result is magnetism,” Madeleine shares. The CEO and founder of Marisa Baratelli has paid tribute to the ancient artisanal craft of silk weaving by maintaining the purity of the traditional village methods in the design of timeless women’s fashion. Madeleine felt called upon to uphold the traditions of Thai silk production when she first visited the country.
