Nowadays, you can find plenty of embellished bag straps. But genuine pearl craftsmanship like this one is rare.
Made by women from Guatemala’s indigenous groups. By the fair trade label Smitten.
In the latest colour combination grey, coral, orange and the floral motif that is typical for the region, this masterpiece of Guatemalan craftsmanship gives any simple bag a trendy, ethno-style upgrade.
Gorgeous yet practical.
No comparison to stiff pearl straps usually produced hastily by machine: Following traditional methods, the pearls are threaded by hand, row by row by craftswomen in Guatemala. Then the strip of pearls is adhered to supple, Italian leather and sewed in order to make the pearl strap especially robust.
Manufactured under fair conditions in an ethically correct way.
The German founder of Smitten personally ensures that her high ethical standards are met. Because first-class quality only comes about from long-term collaboration and fair working conditions.
Width: 3.5cm (1.4″). Colour: Grey/Coral/Orange. Made from cow leather. Snap hook made of metal, antique brass-coloured galvanised.
