Il Bisonte’s capsule collection for Christmas 2018 is a tribute to leather craftsmanship, a thousand-year-old tradition of excellence in Florence and Tuscany.

Each piece in the collection is entirely handmade: vegetable-tanned leather is cut, soaked and shaped on wooden forms; it is left to dry and then dyed, polished and finished.

The CIPREA collection, whose name is inspired by the graceful and compact shapes of a seashell, is made up of three new bags and a jewel box.

The bags feature an adjustable shoulder strap and metal zip. Lined in natural nappa leather, they each contain an inside pocket for ID.

The color palette includes black, red, forest green and pink.

The Xmas Capsule Collection can be exclusively advanced purchased at Il Bisonte stores in Florence, Rome, Milan, Paris, London and Hong Kong, and at the online shop ilbisonte.com.
