The Finest Handbags, Made by One Man

Special Projects Product





Open Edition. Offered in an initial run of five.


The Baluchon is offered in an Open Edition. Each year a very small number will be made, just five for the initial release.

This model, like all the work coming from the studio, is hand-crafted in Italian leather with gold-plated solid brass hardware. It is completely hand-stitched ; the 952 stitch-holes of this pattern are cut one by one, allowing the 476 saddle-stitched to be formed by hand - a slow process.

It is unlined to reveal the leather's soft suede reverse. Internally this model features an embossed passport-sized pocket and a key ring. The bag is closed by sliding the ring down the braided cords towards the opening.

Handcrafted by M. Tallowin.
Personally guaranteed.
