Material: Saffiano print on black calf leather from Milan, Italy. Saffiano, being a textured leather, meaning that it is a treated leather made with the texture pressed on it by a machine. It gives the leather a cross-hatch finish, which is a special diagonal pattern. This calf hide leather is also finished with a wax treatment. As a result, the leather is pretty much scratch resistant, durable and easy to clean.

The distinctive markings on this leather are a series of diagonal lines and cross-hatch designs that renders the leather very resistant to stains, scratches and is also water repellent. Many high-end fashion houses use Saffiano leather for it’s many positive attributes. The indications in the Saffiano leather were invented by Mario Prada himself. This is one of the most expensive calf skins you can buy and should give pleasure for generations.

  • At the turn of the 19th century, Riga was burned down during the French invasion. A wealthy architect and gardener Anna Gertrud Vermane (Wöhrmann, 1750-1827) donated land and money to create park in the very centre of the city. Vermanes Garden Park was named after its founder and creator in 1817 by the Governor of Livonia Philip Paulucci.

  • Today the garden park has turned into a fairy tale with a splendid four season fountain, majestic stone lions, exotic trees, beaming lamps, and music. We were inspired by the extraordinary woman, and we spent many months working with our craftsman to perfect our VERMANE handbag, ensuring that it reveals the three things that we value – beautiful Italian leather, exquisite details and exceptional craftsmanship.
