Fontanelli Woven Lamb Nappa Handbag
Hand woven and hand sewn. Made from buttery soft lamb nappa.
By Fontanelli. Purse maker’s art from Tuscany since 1860.
More than 130 filigree leather strips – each one cut by hand and woven into an amazing 3D pattern. Even the handle and the zipper are sewn in by hand. The final touch is given by a decorative handmade tassel which is knotted to the zipper.
Bags as classy as this one are often much more expensive. And are often made by Fontanelli as well.
The roots of this traditional purse maker date back to 1860. And to this day some of Italy’s finest labels have their items produced by the brothers Remigio and Corrado Fontanelli. Their handbags also sell at much higher prices, too.
Regardless of how fashion changes: This bag goes with everything.
It will accompany you to the office, to the city, while travelling … The elegant handle has just the right length so you can carry the bag in your hand the classic way or casually over your shoulder. Or just hook in the straps to convert it into a comfortable shoulder bag. Three separate compartments keep things in order. Both outer pockets feature magnetic closures, the middle one has a zipper. Two open pockets on the inside, and one zippered side pocket. Especially practical: Thanks to the light beige lining, the contents of the bag are easier to see.
