London’s evolving skyline has preserved richly historic buildings while embracing bold modern structures. Reflecting this, the understated design of HANSON OF LONDON’s debut collection is underpinned by rigid structural qualities and traditional craftsmanship. The collection’s curved silhouette is formed by cutting expansive leather panels from a single hide, a refined technique rarely seen today.
From a studio-workshop in East London, each handbag is created in-house by a single craftsperson using a range of traditional methods including labour intensive edge burnishing and exquisite hand-stitching skills. These ensure a more durable bind than can ever be achieved by a machine. The interior is luxuriously lined with HANSON OF LONDON’s signature racing green goat suede, which along with the restrained use of solid brass hardware will appeal to a discerning individual.
Personalised lettering can be added, with made-to-order designs requiring days to create.
Each handbag carries an individual number embossed internally by the craftsman.
Available exclusively through HANSONOFLONDON.COM and by appointment at HANSON OF LONDON’s studio-workshop in Shoreditch, close to the boutiques of Redchurch Street and Rivington Street.
