Suryo is dedicated to the joy in everyday opulence. Embellished with pearls, feathers, and beads, they take on the air of modern-day keepsake – something to cherish. The brand was launched in 2018 when designer Lucielle Hargreaves harnessed the inspiration she gathered from her hometown of Yogyakarta. Suryo was spurred by the creativity and craftsmanship she saw everywhere, and Lucielle started working with a group of female artisans, and a fruitful collaboration was born.
The bags, which take 17 hours to make by hand, incorporate elements of weaving and crochet and carry on a long legacy of craftsmanship. The women who make them were taught these skills by their mothers, who were taught by their mothers. The bags and accessories are both unconventional and feminine, acting as an exclamation mark to every outfit.
