This leather artwork Tote 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 Diana Handbag, as named by the artist, is a magnificent work of fine craftsmanship. The handbag is made of rich cinnamon brown, rigid calfskin leather and has the artist's leather forming signature design of soft folds painted in light ginger bordering the front and leather stitching around the edges. The handbag features double handles and chrome colored hardware. The spacious interior is lined in the same cinnamon brown calfskin leather and has triple compartments: two square pockets and one large pocket. A small, removable pouch with zip attaches on the inside at the top of the handbag by 4 hidden sewn-in magnets; a bonus accessory to complete this fashion masterpiece. Leather flap with hidden magnet closure covers the pouch. Can be carried either as a shoulder bag or on the arm.
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.
