The Story

Created by Florentine artisans during the postwar period, the craftsmanship behind this bag exuded a feeling of luxurious travel and provided an attainable escape from reality. By using a flame, the bamboo handle was curved into a semicircle shape and added an unexpected contrast to the white leather of the bag's body.

Grasping the textured bamboo handle continues to evoke that same feeling of new beginnings and the unwavering pursuit for more.

As soon as you hold a piece of the Vault, you begin to write a new chapter of its story—instituting a relationship, rather than ownership, that will forever connect one owner to the next. As the years accumulate, every mark or crease is collected onto the surface, continuously altering the item’s appearance and making it unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
