We use the finest hand selected US leathers for our handbags. Since we use a single swath of leather for our original "Un-Sewn" design, each pattern piece must utilize the most beautiful parts of the hide. We then weave a hand cut strap of leather through the hide to create a strong and durable bag that will endure many years of use and style.
We choose to use 5mm thick German felt for our felt collection. German felt has the highest Green standards for the dyeing and processing of this ancient fiber. We adore the saturated colors and architectural qualities that are perfectly suited for our original designs.
We hand fabricate the brass rod and shield hardware for our handbags in our studio in Windsor California. We use solid brass buttons on our hand cut straps.
We use solid brass rod or tubing, polymer clay and gold fill or sterling silver ear wires.
