The colors that stand out this season are soft colors such as rose quartz and serenity (very light blue). As for fabric you’ll find canvas and raffia in many styles.

Many people have asked us how to make a leather bag.  In this post we will explain what we believe is the most important point:  choosing the leather.

We use calf skin, goat skin, sheep skin and exotic skins, such as crocodile, snake, lizard, etc. Did you know that python leather comes from snakes that are raised on farms?
