LEATHER AS STRONG AS BLOOD: A MOTHER-DAUGHTER DUO
Alice.D bags combine a modern look of clean lines and vibrant colors with the centuries-old art of Italian leather. Cofounders - mother and daughter dynamic duo - Alice and Donatella got their start creating leather goods for brands in their native Milan before teaming up to launch their own line of beautiful Italian leather handbags. With Donatella's experience in leather design and Alice's background in economics, the two sought out Italian artisans to create their collection using time-honored techniques. Though the brand has expanded, Alice.D remains deeply invested in preserving the authenticity and history of the Italian leather craft in order to create timeless, classic bags for a luxury customer.
The duo take their time selecting every material that goes into their handbags, seeking out the highest-quality Italian leather and other fabrics, touching and examining them firsthand. To make the bags, Alice.D enlists Italian crafters who employ the classic, authentic methods for which Italian leather goods are famous. The leather is naturally and locally tanned, and the entire process is chemical-free.
Alice and Donatella are always listening to their customers, brainstorming new colors and designs based on that feedback. For example, they made the Milano bag in custom colors for a selected customer: a continental, chic woman who runs from the office to the airport. She wants a beautiful but durable bag she can grab after breakfast to take to work, and then run from work to the gym, or perhaps from the gym to the airport. If these scenarios sound familiar, this bag may be made for you.
