Iacobella. These playful leather bags are a natural gem
We discovered ‘diamond in the rough’ Iacobella just in time for summer. The Italian fine leather goods house embraces a new heritage of ‘Made in Italy’ with experimental design and artisanal tradition blended into one.
Leather braids and one-of-a-kind stones make love in Iacobella's bags
Care and pride are behind all Iacobella bags, created by expert leather makers in the brand’s Florence studio. And the thoughtful craftsmanship doesn’t stop there. Founder and Creative Director Iacobella Gaetani ensures her handbags pop with semi-precious gemstones decorating every design. Each gemstone is selected and hand cut by gemologist and master-cutter Leonardo Arcadi. Quartz, sandstone, amethyst, fluorite, and corundum stones personally selected by Arcadi accent each bag. These dreamy stones are responsibly sourced from small family-owned mines in Brazil where labour conditions and wages meet the brand’s extremely high standards. The gemstones are then polished to perfection and used together with leather braids as enclosures. Every handcrafted leather bag is truly one-of-a-kind.
Why we love it?
We love a brand that is trendy yet timeless. Iacobella has already become a staple in the closets of our #MiaMuses across Italy. Like them, we’ve fallen for the heritage of Iacobella and creativeness. Bright pink and turquoise suedes, creamy white leather and tie dye-effect braided straps make Iacobella seriously on trend this summer. What’s more is that these bags are not only good for your outfit, they’re good for your soul. Take the NIRMALA bag. NIRMALA originates from Sanskrit, meaning one’s truest form and pure inner light. The bag’s crystal closures are believed by some to absorb light and keep it within. Whether in good health or good fashion, these bags are meant to be the classic statement piece and pop of color in your closet for years to come.
