The art of making


taom1The art of making is not casual it is the result of a lot of practice and learning with different skilled artisans.

Throughout my career I have picked up many of the techniques and collected materials from all over the world.

Each GIULIETTA is a little piece of unique art.

The first thing I settle is the model or the structure of the bag.

The style is properly planned with paper patterns and models, by trying over and over different shapes.

I base my construction on having a wide back and front panel because on these I shall be doing my art work.

Out of my tries I decide on two or three styles max each season and proceed with the different creations.

Then comes my favorite part! That is making, designing and assembling the back and front part of the bag with the different bits and pieces; embroidery, borders, patches, leather, fabric and any other thing I can stitch or glue on.

Each panel is like a canvas. Each is unique and cannot be the same as another as each one is handmade and decorated!

The bags are then stitched together in the final structure with all the selected accessories, frames, eyelets, rings, clasps, handles and bits and pieces for the finished, ready to go GIULIETTA!
