Wearing suede has been considered a luxury for centuries. Designers often prefer to work in suede because of its soft, fluid style. The sumptuous material is used the same way a designer would use cloth. We’ve been hunting for the perfect suede bag for years and with the help of our friend Claudia and her leather workshop outside of Florence, we’ve created a bag with the perfect balance of sophistication and softness. The Theresa Handbag features a combination of Italian leather and suede that gives the bag a chic contrast in textures. We chose to feature a classic quilted pattern and croc-embossed leather executed in a way only generations of skills honed in the Italian leather industry can. The caramel-colored Theresa Handbag is a limited edition study in Italian leather mastery. And it’s only available at Stauer.
