L.O.N.B. and The TukTuk Flower Studio have collaborated to create a limited edition collection of gardening-inspired leather goods. The collaboration celebrates impeccably sourced materials and hand craftsmanship of the highest quality, made exclusively in Italy. Each piece was created to travel between nature and urban streets with ease.
The TukTuk Flower Studio was founded by Silka Rittson-Thomas. With her studio based in Mayfair and her gardens in the Cotswolds, Silka constantly travels between the countryside and the city centre. Additionally, Silka is a renowned art advisor who is often traveling all over the world. She wanted a bag that could move seamlessly with her through each facet of her life.
Melissa and Silka met through mutual admiration of each other's work and became fast friends. The collaboration came naturally as a meeting of the minds.
Rousseau Carry All
The Rousseau is the ultimate carryall. Uniting form and function, its exaggerated proportions allow it to slouch effortlessly while improving its usability. It is crafted from the highest quality materials and is handmade in Italy. The handle is hand braided in an artisanal atelier outside of Florence. The interior is made from a water resistant Italian linen sourced from outside Lake Como. Interior pockets are trimmed with leather and are seamlessly integrated for intuitive functionality. The Racine Belt Bag can be attached to the interior back panel for modular ease.
