Ladies leather shopper braided, Braun
Soft leather. Seamlessly woven
This shopper is braided from supple, soft buffalo leather with a good grip, in one piece, entirely without seams. This demanding, purely manual production takes time, and so it can take up to five days to weave such a feast for the eyes from the narrow leather straps. Since the bands are slightly nuanced in color, an interesting color effect is created in the leather weave, which, along with the two weave patterns, makes for a lively surface: "Two Tones of Colour and Curves," as Allan K calls it. The handles are also worth mentioning: they are specially woven in a round shape so that they lie comfortably in the hand or on the shoulder.
The leather shopper is unlined, but comes with a removable cotton bag that has two slip pockets and a zippered compartment. The cotton bag is trimmed with leather at the opening and can be closed with a zipper. Practical: leather shopper and cotton bag can also be used separately.
Specialist in hand braided leather. Allan K
Belgian label Allan K is considered a specialist in bags and shoes made of hand-braided leather. Founder Alain Kadic sums up the passion for his company and the products in one sentence: "Braided leather is in my DNA." No wonder, since the company's genesis dates back to the 1960s, when his father Ivan Kadic, an engineer with an inventive spirit, developed a spiral cutter capable of cutting a narrow strip hundreds of feet long from a leather hide. Many of his inventions, including an automatic leather weaving machine, soon find their way around the world.
In the 1980s, Alain Kadic, now an engineer himself, followed in his father's footsteps and traced the machines to India. Here, the craft of leather weaving has a long tradition. After working with various leather weaving companies for several years, he finally founded the Allan K brand in 2012 and from then on had his designs manufactured in Madras. The timeless-classic shoes and bags made of woven and braided leather are handmade there, which can take up to five days depending on the model. The leather for them is still cut on the machines that his father developed at the time.
