Made in Italy
This minimal, ever-classic shopping bag was inspired by a favorite shopping bag the designer used to carry as his carry-all tote. He would go back to the same store to shop in order to get another bag every time the heavy weight paper version would wear out from constant use. Finally, he thought, I would love one of these in leather & the result is pictured here.
Fabricated in unsplit cow hide & made 100% by hand in a leather shop in Florence, Italy, that specializes in making custom saddle bags for Harley-Davison motorcycles. The designer & the maker met over sundaes at New York’s iconic Serendipity III restaurant when a mutual friend & Harley-Davidson enthusiast introduced them. After a lengthy discussion, two Frozen Hot Chocolates & about 2,000 calories, a partnership was born!
Available in Cognac with Black topstitching, pictured here, as well as Black with White topstitching & Brown with Cream topstitching, each with a contrasting square logo stitch next to the embossed designer logo. Each bag is sequentially numbered on the bottom by the artisan who constructed it. These shopping bags are constructed to last an eternity with the character being enhanced as they age.
Perfect for a computer, some files, or even a day’s shopping, they are versatile enough to go from a day of shopping to a day at the office, lending a classic, chic, sophisticated touch to any woman or man’s daily wardrobe.
