We have always wanted to add a tote to our line but we wanted to ensure that we had a product that was as practical and durable as it was stylish. When Roséline and I began working on our design, we focussed on the size and construction. We knew that a lot of totes looked great initially, but quickly lost their shape with unsightly stretching on the leather, especially at the base of the bag where the bottom sometimes fall out. With the help of our highly experienced maker, we were able create a solid base for our tote and a unique construction that makes it roomy yet still appear sleek and stylish.
The other major aspect of utmost importance in the design was the choice of leather — we wanted something that was rich and full of character. For this reason, we choose a small family run tannery in Tuscany that specialises in vegetable tanned leather using traditional pit tanning; this complex process produces a timeless leather unparalleled in its depth of colour, smell and texture. We felt the leather we choose perfectly evoked the rolling landscape and rich history of Tuscany.
The Saint-Germain-des-Prés Shoulder Bag in Cognac, is made from the same Tuscan Italian leather as the Tuscany City Tote. A perfectly chic alternative to the Bruyere & Seacliff bags, wear it with your favourite trench or a white lace jacket or just about anything . . .
The ALGARVE Birkin Wicker Basket Bag is inspired by English-French actress, singer, songwriter, and model Jane Birkin. This style is slightly smaller and narrower than some, making it perfect for traipsing around and about the city or the countryside on weekends. It is entirely handmade for us by artisans in sunny Spain.
