Day 3 – 12 Days of Designer Christmas Shopping for Handbags
Many of Atelier’s designers have spent years perfecting their craft. In the case of handbags, there are so many elements that go into creating a beautiful purse – material selection (leathers, silks, fabrics), zippers, clasps, button closures and much more.
Nancy Newman gathers textiles and vintage fabrics from around the globe for her handbags. The bucket bag shown below includes traditional indigo dyed cotton from the Hmong tribe in Laos, a pigskin leather bottom, repurposed leather strap and a reclaimed glass bead from Ghana. Think of the work that goes into just one of her bags! She really is saving the fashion world one purse at a time.
