Alessi’s Marli Cap Remover is one of the most ergonomic openers you’ll find, but it also doubles as a very chic belt buckle. Its named from ‘marli-marli’ which means butterfly in an aboriginal language.
Our stainless steel butterfly is the creation of South Australian Steven Blaess who gains his inspiration from growing up around Australia’s central desert. He’s one of only three or four Australians to do work for Italian design champions Alessi. (He recently married an Italian model and now lives in Italy).
