We live in the current modern society where traditional skills such as artisan craftsmanship are in danger of dying out, as demand for them falls, and craving for faster and cheaper products grows, which can only survive less than a few seasons and find their way to landfill. 

The work of excellence, from the initial sketch to the timeless classic of the highest quality could only be achieved by a certain ethic and discipline along with patience. This is teamwork and its spirit is always alive at the leather goods workshop in Florence, Italy. 

At SEVDA LONDON, we protect and nurture our values, and our crafts are very dear to us. We create and invest in handmade artisans’ products with high value and real human talent and the intelligence behind it all. Our handbags are produced exclusively in the leather goods workshop in Florence, Italy, by highly skilled craftsmen and craftswomen.

THE WORK OF EXCELLENCE

 

The unique and warm scent of the leather permeates the air of the leather room. Each leather hide delivered from Italian tanneries goes under strict quality examination. Each one meticulously handled by the hands of a leather specialist, to evaluate and make the right choice. Scars, insect bites, and other small faults are not tolerated.

The craftsmen and craftswomen cut the leather to the shape required. It takes hours to assemble the separate pieces into each bag. The thickness of the thread and the number of perforations per centimetre are predetermined from the very beginning. The perforations create a lovely line in the leather.

The work of excellence, from the initial sketch to the timeless classic of the highest quality could only be achieved by a certain ethic and discipline along with patience. This is teamwork and its spirit is always alive at the leather goods workshop in Florence, Italy.

The smoothly cut edges of the leather are nicely polished after they have been given an extra colouring. Although traditional production methods have endured to the present day, the craftsperson always conveys his/her own personal touch to his/her work.

The process of excellence requires time and attention through a passion for work well done.

The final treatment, sprucing it up before the bag leaves the studio, is done by the Master Craftsperson. Followed by the final round, quality control. Each design is screened thoroughly once again before it is sent to the shop floor.
