This bag is made with 100% vegetable tanned leather, which as it is exposed to sunlight it will patina into a beautiful darker shade over time. It is a very slow process but eventually your gorgeous bag will be a much darker shade then it starts out with!
We love this leather so much because it is so natural. No dyes. We condition it with all natural and safe leather conditioner created locally by my wonderful mother! I love to bury my face in a pile of this leather because it smells so much like leather is supposed to! I can’t wait for you to get yours!
The O STOCKHOLM story:
I was 8 years old when my family moved to a country home right outside of the city of Stockholm, Sweden. The first day on the schoolyard in front of the old red schoolhouse set atop a hill I was sitting by myself and the little girls in my class would come up to me, and say in a sweet accent “Hi my name is... Anna... Miriam....” and then run back to our teacher to learn another English word to use to try to speak to me. Within 6 months my siblings and I were speaking the Swedish language fluently.
My family moved home to Battle Ground, WA in the USA 2 years later and a piece of my heart stayed there. I since return to Sweden very often. It is my second home.
I wanted to make sure that whichever handbag I made that I used the name O STOCKHOLM, was one that I loved and would hold this piece of my heart in each bag I make.
Stockholm is so well rounded. The city works like magic. The new city is gorgeously designed incorporating the ancient parts of the city. It is beautiful and breath taking.
Beautiful design is such an integral part of the culture, as well as an importance on nature and natural fibers. Fashion is always cutting edge, and yet modest and beautiful.
My dream is that when you see and feel and use this handbag, you’ll have a piece of this story with you.
