Living in a big city can be quite a challenge when it comes to carrying all your daily essentials. When running from work to the gym followed by a romantic dinner, the ideal bag will not only be spacious, but will look just as good in the chicest cocktail bar or in a business meeting. Throw in an occasional weekend in the countryside or a perfect travel companion on a long hall flight and the bag of your dreams seems like belonging to the realm of science fiction. This is where EDDIE steps in. The British line, started by the creative duo Emily Noorollahi and Nima Saraf, solved this issue of function and style with their beautifully handmade bags by Italian artisans in premium leathers.
Eddie is a luxury British label reflecting a sense of relaxed and timeless elegance, focusing on practicality and streamlined designs. All of the pieces are made with natural cowhide and calf leather, used for its particularly smooth, supple, yet durable qualities. Attention to detail and traditional leather craftsmanship are the key elements that bring an EDDIE bag together, each piece suiting a purpose and made to be a lifetime companion.
Pieced together in the Florence workshop the leather is also sourced from the finest tanneries in Italy, a number of which also provide their material to world leading fashion houses.
