Beautifully Crafted Leather
Combining irresistible elegance with superior functionality, this classic handbag is sculpted from supple yet enduring calf leather and features beautiful hand cross-stitching, echoing Bentley’s iconic styling lines, to the exterior.
Made in Italy
For centuries, Tuscany has been renowned as a world centre of quality leather production. Tanneries sprang up along the might River Arno, principally between Florence and Pisa, to take advantage of the plentiful supply of water needed for preparing the hides – preserving, dyeing and transforming them into sumptuous leather. The process continues today, with the leather then being cut, fitted, sewn and stitched by highly skilled artisans in traditional ‘pelletterie’, which are workshops implicitly trusted by global luxury brands to assist in the crafting of beautiful handbags.
Each bag takes between 15 and 20 hours to create, typically using 1.5 to 2 metres of leather and incorporating impeccably fitted handbag frames. The cross-stitching detail is executed by hand, an extension of the precise artistry found within the interiors of Bentley cars.
Leather produced to the age-fold art of Italian craftsmanship bears a hallmark of unsurpassed quality and excellence, mirroring Bentley’s own commitment to the highest standards of luxury.
The daughter of Le Mans winner Woolf Barnato, Diana Barnato Walker inherited her father’s flair and courageous spirit. Diana was an a successful horsewoman with a passion for automobiles. Flying became a life-long passion of hers, in 1962 she was awarded the Jean Lennox Bird Trophy for achievements in aviation and flew an English Electric Lightning T14 fighter at an incredible 1,262 mph – that’s twice the speed of sound.
