This leather artwork Shoulder Handbag designed and handmade by the Florentine artist, Marco Giusti, is one of the unique artworks in the Pierotucci collection of one-of-a-kind handmade leather handbags. Each bag, individually numbered and signed is worked by hand, without the aid of templates or drawings, thus assuring that the piece you own is an exclusive work of art.
The Marylin Handbag, as named by the artist, is a magnificent work of fine craftsmanship. The handbag is made of natural color, rigid calfskin leather and has the artist's leather forming signature design of soft folds painted in lilac hue bordering the front and leather stitching around the edges. The handbag features a long adjustable shoulder strap and chrome colored hardware. The handbag is small and lightweight yet the roomy interior, lined in the same natural calfskin leather, has triple compartments where the middle one has two additional pockets and a leather flap with hidden magnet closure. Another pocket on the back of this handbag to add ease in grabbing your smartphone. Can be carried either as a shoulder bag or crossbody bag.
The artist's signature design is created using the wet forming process where the leather is soaked and then molded while still wet, thus forming unrepeatable shapes. Once the leather is dry it is painted with oil colors.
The Florentine artisan, Marco Giusti, has exhibited his works in numerous art galleries in Milan and Florence, among which Palazzo Corsini and the Stazione Leopolda are to mention, and still represents excellence in the field of leather sculpture.
