Elizabeth works with Andrea, in Le Marche, Italy to produce exclusive handbag designs in very small quantities, true artisanal work.
Andrea learned his craft from his father who learned it from his father. Andrea has created bags for some of Europe's most exclusive and well-known brands.
Craftsmanship passed down through 3 generations using the highest quality materials means your handbag is made to last and will become a timeless addition to your wardrobe.
Hand Woven: A Unique Process
Genuine hand-weaving is a time-consuming process. It takes an entire day to weave, sew and line just one bag!
Each leather strip is cut, then woven around a wooden form (see photo) in a process called ''intreccio'' or, in another process, the strips are sewn into a flat piece of leather which has been cut in a pattern, a process called ''infilato''.
Both techniques create a unique, artisanal handbag which carries the stories of the individuals who made it.
The Magic of Handmade in Italy
We believe in the magic of Italy and in supporting the families that continue to make true Made in Italy handbags.
Elizabeth works directly with Andrea bringing our creations directly to you, skipping the middlemen, so you get the same quality as the luxury brands at a fraction of the price.
