While looking through their fashion site, I love the craftsmanship of the bags, jewelry and apparel featuring knitting, crocheting, handlooming, leathersmithing and weaving. Some of my personal favorites were the Horn and Roses Necklace, Peruvian Embroidered Bag, the Chelsea Handbag and the Tallia Cocoon Cotton Sweater.
