Do you remember those days when quilts were made by your grandma, and all your stuff -from notebooks to bags- were covered in flower-patterned patchworks that matched everything else in the kitchen or your bedroom? And never forget, those patchworks always came in boring square-cut pieces of different fabrics, all sewn jointly…
Thank goodness, now that patchworks have become another fashion items, a bag doesn’t have to look like it was made of a nursery room’s drape or a baby blanket anymore. Instead, a patchwork bag can be a canvas for ingenious designers. Like this one, a celebrated Italian fine leather bags brand, BRACCIALINI.
Through its TUA BY BRACCIALINI collections line, Braccialini’s patchwork bags are completely distinctive. They make pieces of leather cuts into dioramas of everything from a pirate’s island, a cozy living room, a backyard farm to a Noah’s Ark!
Under the TUA BY BRACCIALINI collections line, there is also a sub-line called CARTOLINE. Cartoline collections are Braccialini’s interpretation of love and romance around the infamous places around the world.
But my favorite would be this one: Braccialini Cubalibre Handbag, a Bauletto handbag with a detailed theme of ‘Home Sweet Home’.
