“When I was through Tuscany, I was inspired by the beauty of the bamboo used by farmers to support the growth of the tomatoes in their vegetable gardens and I wanted to bring this natural beauty into our new collection.” Karen said; when she began to realise her idea, she also discovered that in the past the Italian women used to have typical shopper bags with bamboo handles.
Brown&Berry has created a beautiful fusion between the two natural worlds of leather and wood. “INDIA” combines a luxury and exotic look. The genuine extra soft leather is tanned through the work of Italian artisans and has not been interrupted for centuries, which gives this bag a delicate soft touch. To emphasise the opulence of the bag, Brown&Berry has decided to fully line the interior in genuine leather, a prerogative of very few handbags on the market. To increase the exotic look of “INDIA” we have designed a classic central twist lock with a specially inserted bamboo part.
Furthermore, the process to curve the bamboo for the handles is a technique traditionally used in the asian culture; in fact Karen said “ The name “INDIA” was influenced by my first experience when visiting the country and seeing the use of bamboo as a natural material in the construction of a small suspension bridge.”
