The Making Of a Bulgari Bag, From First Sketch to Finished Product
Joyce Park stashed this in Craft
See the pattern of the alligator leather on this purse? To make it stand out properly requires an astonishing amount of skilled hand labor -- including backing the individual "cells" with hand-cut fabric.
They seem incredibly mindful of detail. No wonder those Bulgari Bags are so desirable!
They burnish and heat the hides so the scales puff up. Extreme craftmanship with each step, as with fine upholstered furniture.
I like the phrase "extreme craftmanship".
