Antonello

The name it's enough like other great names in fashion. Antonello is from Sardinia,  he lives in London and makes gorgeous handbags using a sardinian tecnique  called "pibiones" where the fabric is wowen in mills giving that particular look with these "grains" creating a design. Antonello uses organic cottons and wools dyed with natural dye from Sardinia. All his fabrics are handmade and the bags are handstiched one by one giving a kind of unique feeling. Some details like vintage clasps or straw handles make his handbags all one offs.
