It’s a bag!
There’s one small step from creating head coverings to crafting containers, and Maison Michel has taken it, much to the delight of handbag enthusiasts.
This new venture allows the fashion house to express its exceptional savoir faire; Maison Michel bags combine poetry, superb craftsmanship, and audacity – upholding the high standards that have made this extraordinary milliner so successful.
Bag making – a new technical prowess made possible with the wooden hat forms from the company’s archives.
In the hands of the artisan, these forms become a new playground on which the bags are created from life-size moulds.
In the spotlight? Sewn straw, a technique for stitching straw in which the pieces are sewn in a spiral; one of our artisans’ specialities.
