Meet the collection using a natural, plant-based material, that also introduces the new Alternative line of the brand – created with a passion for innovation and an experimental design approach.
Although the leathers used for the Leather collections are responsibly sourced from Italian tanneries, and are by products of the food industry (we do not use exotics or fur), it was my wish when starting the brand to experiment with and to use new materials. Having been searching for a non-animal alternative to substitute leather for a long time, I was happy to find Piñatex® as a natural alternative with ideal performance and durability and also beautiful colours.
Piñatex® is a plant based, water resistant textile with low environmental impact. Pineapple leaf fibres that are the base of the textile are by-products of the agriculture industry, no extra land, water or pesticides are required to produce the raw material. The dyes used for Piñatex® are GOTS approved and the resins comply with AFIRM standards.

Discover the first Alternative collection:
The slashed clutches are available in a new, hand fitting mini version, with modified designs to fit the smaller size, in colours like natural – revealing flecks of fibre in its surface, fiery poppy red, charcoal and futuristic silver.
Also available are the Mini Close Bags, our chunky yet sharp bucket bags with a shoulder strap that closes the bag when worn, adjustable with sliding knots. The dark charcoal gets a sporty twist with the light grey stitches bordering the playful, irregular shapes, while the fluid and folded forms in silver are paired with a „background” in natural to complement the futuristic vibe.
The roomy clutch-shoulder bag Boomerang Hybrid Bags come in two colours, natural and charcoal, both with two-tone cut edges resulting in lines that become more and more prominent as the bags soften with wear.
