01 Mar Mrs. Rosehip
If you love leather – Um wait, let me rephrase that – if you have a serious crush on leather, you arrived in heaven! Because today’s bag is eternal, spectacular and a woman’s final destination. This leather bag will last a lifetime, is insanely beautiful and it will be hard to find anything that can top it. With this bag you can travel in style, like William Gladstone, the British Prime Minister who was known for his many travels in the 19th century. The accessory that I carry in the pictures is inspired on the bag of Mr. Gladstone, which was an icon of luxury travels at the time. The Dutch label Mrs. Rosehip added the ingredients of elegance, sophistication and contemporariness. The result is this lovely Gladstone Bag which represents every day luxury. I would love to carry this bag day and night, in winter and summer and to work and in my free time. A bit like this outfit, which I also could wear all year long. This bag can bring any outfit to the next level and is designed for women who choose their own path and emphasize their own style and appearance by carrying a bag full of character.
As the designer of the Mrs. Rosehip leather bags has a healthy aversion of the taste of the majority, she wanted to create something very special. She has always had a great love for leather and she created a habit to fold things while she was talking on the phone. And one day, she held a piece of leather while she was calling a friend. And so the idea was born: double pleated leather bags.
The handbags of Mrs. Rosehip have an exceptional signature as the leather has been pleated in a very authentic manner. For the pleated part of the bag, at least three times the size of the unfolded leather is used. It is a very complicated process which only can be done by selected craftsmen using just the best cow leather. The process is entirely sustainable which is a high value of Mrs. Rosehip.
Today the collection exits of three models, Rosehip Pleated Classic, the Rosehip Pleated Gladstone and the Rosehip Pleated Daily, that each come in black, camel and red. The designer loves bags, art, theatre and poetry. She therefore included poetry in bags as she wants to share this beauty of language. As Mrs. Rosehip encourages making your bag as personal as possible, you have the option to include your own poem as well. And to make your bag even more unique, you can add a genuine silver 925 jewel which is a beautiful and subtle detail that makes this bag even more exclusive. Finally, Mrs. Rosehip uses handcrafted leather stamps to hammer your initials or name on the inside of the bag so it will be yours forever.
Raw and rare beauty
The Mrs. Rosehip leather bag has been entirely double pleated and made by hand from the best quality leather. And to complete the raw beauty, the lining is also made of leather. You can press the lock and pull the label to open the main compartment and you will soon be surprised by a poem, a special message from the designer, just for you. The inside has three little compartments to organize the inside of the bag. The handle is made of leather as well as the removable and adjustable shoulder strap. These bags have therefore everything you ever wanted: beauty, exclusivity, personality, functionality and sustainability.
Carry me, and I’ll carry you
It occurred to me,
You forgot your keys.
Your mobile. And your wallet.
