The art of leather accessory design has layers of processes that only the artisan’s hands involved or a leather aficionado can appreciate. A well-made luxury bespoke bag takes 20-40 hours to make and entails hundreds, perhaps over a thousand, hand-sewn saddle stitches; all done with hand tools, two needles and thread. The choice of leather is a vital decision as to the ultimate look and feel of the product to ensure the owner’s delight of the product each time it is used. With those values and work ethic driving us, we are especially proud of the latest creations of our Master Leather artisan, T. Michael.
This year, the number of requests to expand our luxury clutch offerings has amplified. Particularly with the upcoming holidays and celebrations looming on the horizon.
As promised, it is our pleasure to introduce the first two bags that involve our eveningwear collection:
The Grace Bespoke Clutch Bag (pictured above) is making its debut this November as a true one of a kind for Beau Satchelle. As with all of our products, it was necessary that we, first and foremost, provided good design and superior craftsmanship.
The clutch’s design has a concave shape and is petite enough for a woman to comfortably carry in her hand. The leather is made from Italian lambskin in silver metallic and feels amazingly soft. The interior is made of black goatskin to contrast the silver exterior. This luxury jewel is sewn with fine waxed black thread and the edges are hand painted and hand burnished in black. An interior sleeve was created to provide accessibility for a Smartphone and keep it separated from other items like keys and makeup. The remaining interior has just enough room to carry a few personal items for that special evening out. A nickel chain is permanently attached, but inconspicuous, to the clutch to use for carrying on the shoulder. This design’s rarity is the first designer clutch bag T. Michael has incorporated clear crystals to the front to enhance a woman’s formal wear.
Beau Satchelle’s second clutch is actually a comeback debut with slight changes in the hardware. The genuine python clutch in red, both hand cut and hand stitched is made of the short tail. The interior is made out of black kidskin with a smart phone pocket. It is stitched with black French linen ‘Lin Cable’ thread and the edges are hand painted and hand burnished in black as well. The addition of a nickel plated designer push clasp gives the newly designed bag instant richness. The beauty of this clutch is its adaptability ; its elegant style can be matched with the perfect evening gown, but just as versatile to be worn with jeans and a cashmere sweater.
As a young brand, our team is committed to representing leather crafting at the highest level by presenting products that are undeniably classic as oppose to trendy, yet built well to last for many generations while bringing the ultimate pleasure to the owner of any Beau Satchelle creation.
Throughout the month of November, we will unveil several new luxury handbags and cases to our blog readers that can be purchased for holiday gifts or for your own personal collection. The anticipated holiday events of the 2016 season should be accompanied with a bespoke handbag no one else has… -AJ
