Golden Shopper: Every step of production passes through the hands of exceptional, accomplished Italian artisans who have generations of experience behind them. Each master works hard to invest care and pride in their work - a true labor of love.
Handwoven Bag: The leather is naturally dyed in a tree bark and water bath for 2 months. After that we cut the cow hides in small stripes and the weaving process begins. 160 metres of leather stripes and 16 hours of hand-weaving are required to manufacture one handbag. All the other elements like the handle and inner lining are produced seperately and hand stitched in one week time. Working Hours: All together it takes 3 months in total.
