All leathers are carefully selected. Occasional irregularities in the skin markings are the natural characteristics of the animal and should never be considered imperfections. The skins scales may lift over time. Every piece is individually handcrafted and material differentiation is therefore a sign of the bags singularity.

The components and jewels are made of high quality base material, plated and finished with a protective cover.

Bag colours, materials, hardware and jewels shown on the website are displayed as accurately as possible, but please be aware that computer screens influence the appearance.


We advice you that all bags and its components should be protected from rain, humidity, heat, dryness and direct sunlight. If your bag gets wet, pat gently with a cloth and allow it to dry at room temperature.
Store your bag in the dustbag provided and keep it in a cool dry place. Please take care that no acidity will be in contact with the bag.
Generally, bags should only be “treated” by specialised products and craftsmen/companies. Handbags/Eveningbags should not be overloaded and treated accordingly as this may damage the appearance and/or functionality of the bag.
