Belgrave Crescent is the intermingling of design, function, exceptional craftsmanship, and beautiful materials. We are a young, modern company with a deep admiration and appreciation for the care and craftsmanship of the things of yesterday — ornate opera houses and romantic cobblestone streets — and are obsessed with creating and hand-selecting products that withstand trends and the test of time.
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.
