Helen Kaminski: Natural Cross Body Bag Rhode
Handmade of natural raffia and leather detail. Magnet closure and small inside pocket.
100% RAFFIA / 100% LEATHER
Madagascan raffia is hand plaited to create our signature Raffia Braid. This material is innately pliant, supple and offers a natural water resistance which delivers a durable resilience to prevent cracking and brittleness over time. Our unique process combines technology with traditional methods; raffia is first hand selected before being dyed to a Helen Kaminski hue, the craftsperson secures the top of the raffia to a surface, then hand-crafts the braid as they follow it, walking backwards, to the enormous lengths required for each style. In order to ensure a continuous finish, the craftsperson gradually feeds new strands into the plait so that no joins are visible to the eye. Luxuriously milled cowhide is coupled with Helen Kaminski's hallmark Raffia Braid. To clean, do not use any harsh chemical or dry clean, simply wipe with a damp cloth. Variations in raffia braid styles are an indication of the unique and authentic character of each handmade piece.
