LEATHER AND HARDWARE
Every hide, which is used for the collection of Stories Official, is carefully picked and checked with the utmost care before manufacturing. They are unique. Variations in colour, texture and small marks are natural features and should not considered as imperfections.
All the bags and accessories of Stories Official are made of high quality tumbled leather and is soft, rich and thick leather with a pebble finish. The leather is a full grain floater with mat finish. The particular grained texture is a result of an age-old tanning process that takes additional time and extra special treatment.
All the fittings and hardware are specially designed for Stories Official and made from solid brass at a family workshop in Italy.
Making a quality bag is a long, complicated process. It’s a sum of numerous parts and a lot of skilled hands are involved with each bag in some way; pattern makers, stitching, producers of zippers, hang tags, lining, hardware and many more.
Not a single bag leaves the factory without having been thoroughly examined with a critical eye and approved by Lotte Zunneberg herself. This is what Stories Official makes so unique and perfect.
