When in Italy…

_R5A0761sh

…I always meet Piero. He is our “leather man” since he has had his hands in the leather industry since he was very young. He is working on a new and very innovative way to produce leather that will probably make a big difference to the whole leather industry. Unfortunately I can not get my hands in this leather before in a few years from now, since another leather company has taken out a patent on this way of treating and coloring leather. This new technique will minimize the pollution and be very gently to our environment. As a bonus the colors are very beautiful and natural. Until this leather is available for me I´ll continue to use the Italian stock leather that has been produced long ago and is just waiting for someone to discover its beauty. Besides this, I use buffalo leather produced in Italy in a small tannery, so I know the regulations within EU is respected. On my last visit to Italy Annika, my sales agent (who among other things is very good at shopping leather!) my assistant, Sara and Line went with me. This was the best team ever and lots of work was done in a few days. The result is a new limited edition collection that will arrive soon….

4 things I like

_R5A8247

My African hairdressers´sign that has followed me for more than 20 years, my wax print slip-ons, my husbands old chair and my zipper shoulder bag in soft Italian buffalo leather. 

AW14 favourite

_R5A8316

I just found these 2 in the boxes with our AW14 production. I´m a fan of simplicity and this bag is an updated classic from one of our previous collections. It comes in both soft Italian buffalo leather and brushed Italian buffalo leather. They will be available in our shop during July…

New Times!

_R5A8268

This is the status of our living room today. And for the next couple of weeks. Boxes filled with our SS15 collection are arriving every day from Italy and Spain. As I have been working from an office with direct access to our home this has been the situation many times during the past 2 years. Finally it´s time to say goodbye to my home office and hello to my new office in connection to my new store. There has been many advantages working from my home, but I can´t wait to start a new working life outside these 4 walls. In a few days I will receive the keys to my store and together with Line I will show you the process from the day I take over the store till the store is ready August 1st.

Zipper shoulder bag

_R5A5877_R5A5881 _R5A5892 _R5A5896 _R5A5899

You have seen this bag before but this new version is made in the softest Italian buffalo leather that will only be softer as you use it. To me it is the perfect everyday bag: it holds your laptop, iPad and other gear you carry around, and the the many compartments makes room for documents, your sketchbook -I would even recommend it as a changing bag.  From today it´s available in our shop

Summer delight!
