A selection of cool handmade products

If on one hand the use of technology in fashion is an increasingly strong movement, on the other handmade items are more and more valued. There are many reasons why this trend has succeed: the exclusivity of the piece, the richness of details, the usage of special materials, the skill of the craftsman and the time spent on each production. We selected 7 handmade garments that really are a work of art.

Anton Heunis earings, handmade in limited edition

Nicole Romano necklace and bracelet, handmade in Rhode Island and with vintage materials

Florenz scarf, numbered and made by artisans of Jaipur

Popinjay bag, made by artisans in Pakistan

Cavilani alpargatas, made ​​by artisans in northern Spain

Sailor made 2014 by p[pi:]

A very special collection by p[pi:]. The hand-drawn illustrations give the bags an innocent and personal touch, and transform them into unique pieces. Cristina says of her new designs:

This season we emphasize even more the handmade nature of our bags , incorporating drawing and freehand painting on leather . Not the first time we used these elements into our work but the first time they are the most important elements of the collection.

The compositions , different in every bag , make each piece one of a kind.

The combination of two passions, making bags and drawing, make the work process becomes intense, interesting and fun. And we hope you enjoy them as much as we do making them .

We propose three very different lines : The SAILOR line , classic sailor stripes painted on leather and combined with natural leather. G handbags , decorative fretwork element are painted on natural leather and combined with black leather. They have a more ethnic tone bit. And finally the DRAWINGS are the little gems of the collection. Rather than bags decorated or printed, we see them as drawings purse.

p[pi:] New bag collection

 

 

satchelHcaramelo1

p[pi:] presents a new selection of hand-crafted bags, this time including the idea of backpack in their designs. For example, the Barcelona based brand created this multipurpose satchel, which combines leather in three colors, can be used as a briefcase, as a backpack and as a crusader bag. The leather straps are fixed to the top. At the lower end are fastened with screws, allowing change and couple them to each other, to use as cross bag. As I mentioned before the attention to detail and original features make these items exquisite must-haves!
