This rich and sophisticated material is complemented with smooth, undyed leather tanned using a traditional process that avoids harmful chemicals.

Hand-dyed cotton lining surrounds a lightweight metal framework that provides support for an extremely fine éclisses sur champ weaving technique

Why we love this: The perfect mix of beauty and technique.
