The Piglet Haute-Couture Bag
In celebration of the 2019 Chinese new year, we have created piglet an haute-couture limited edition - 7 bags only - all handmade in our London atelier by our skilful team of artisans using the finest embroidery techniques and exclusive hand-picked materials.
In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth. Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune and we wanted to encapsulate this into the design. The three-dimensional ears gives this elegant bag a fun twist adding charisma and uniqueness! This bag took endless hours of hand sewing as well as over a 1200 beads - a perfect harmony between clear shiny pale pink Austrian crystals, a beautiful melange of textures created by a three-dimensional and geometric play of the glass seed beads, bicone, round faced and tear drop beads. The circular retro pattern of this British jacquard fabric is the background of such embellishment perfectly tailored to create the continuity of this print alluring to the Chinese geomancy - the feng shui. The gold hardware 1 metre chain is hand braided using silk satin mauve ribbon. to complete the masterpiece every chain gap is embroidered with a crystal.
A True Master Piece. oink, oink!
