“We’re the slow-handbag movement. We’re small, we’re local and we still make it the way we always did. That’s what you preserve.”   -The Falchis
Over the years I have gained a deep appreciation for true craftsmen.  In an age of multi-tasking and jack of all trades mentality, it is refreshing to find someone who has wholeheartedly dedicated themselves to a singular mission and material.  Carlos Falchi is one such craftsman who started working with leather and exotic skins in the 1970s and continues today in stores such as: Bergdorf' Goodman, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Falchi's bags often use skins such as python, alligator and ostrich and are soft and unstructured.   We currently have a few examples of his iconic Buffalo bag (originally designed in 1974 and re-issued in the 1980's) in the store:
