New month, new bag brand to check out. And the brand for today is Valore London, which as the name suggests, is based in the UK. However, its bags are made in Italy, with an average of 7 craftsmen required to craft each piece, with the process starting from the tannery, all the way to the workshop responsible for the cutting and construction of each bag.
Another thing to note? While it might look like coated-canvas, all Valore London bags are crafted in monogrammed leather, known as the Blazon, which also draws inspiration from their family crest. In other words, what you are looking at above (the Box Shoulder Bag) isn’t canvas, but leather through and through. And if you want to be exact, pebble-grained calfskin leather right down to the removable top handle on the bag that retails for GBP990, which really isn’t that bad for something that comes in full leather these days.
Measuring some 20 cm by 13 cm (yes, it is on trend for being quite small), the made-in-Italy bag comes in 3 other colours (Cobalt Blue, Tan and White), besides the one in Black shown above. What’s more, they do ship to Singapore, so if you aren’t particularly interested in this style, they have countless more for both men and women. And while some styles might look a tad familiar, there are standouts too, from the Arche Mini to Gigi Mini Tote that will work well for both genders. In other words, if you are tired of the same old same old of late, hit this link and see if anything catches your eye.
