The Design
This 1781 Mini is uniquely presented in rich grain bullskin together with a horsehair stripe detail. The 1781 collection of handbags is designed to celebrate the establishment of Asprey in that year and the styling harks back to early travel bags. Wear your 1781 Mini with the belt strap elegantly closed or open for a more informal look. Hold in the hand or wear cross body on the detachable shoulder strap.

The 1781 mini features a magnetic tab closure, metal feet on the base, kid suede interior and zip & slip pockets inside. 1781 is featured in finely engineered metal on the front of each bag. Polished palladium finish hardware.

Product Care
Asprey uses European hides to create the bullskin, traditionally tanned and drum-dyed to create a leather that is supple and resistant. The colours are rich, transparent and deep and the finishing reveals the true beauty of the natural grain. Horsehair is a wonderful traditional fabric, woven in England since the 18th century. Originally woven from the tails of working Shire horses which were cropped for safety, the horsehair used in this piece is woven with cotton on original wooden looms. Specially selected European bullskin is tanned to emphasize the natural grain of the leather. Drum dyed, the colours are clear and deep, making use of dyes selected for their richness and light fastness. Maintain the beauty of your Asprey bullskin & horsehair handbag to ensure it endures though time. Avoid direct contact with heat, water, light & oil, as well as any situation that is either too humid or dry. Wipe away any moisture as soon as possible. When not in use, replace the custom-made kid suede cushion provided inside the handbag to hold its shape, store it in the dust bag provided and in a clean, dry, temperate atmosphere. Commercial care products are not kind to Asprey bullskin & horsehair handbags. A soft dry cloth is sufficient to maintain the beauty of the leather. Should there be a problem, we recommend you contact us for some expert TLC, using the Asprey after-sales service.
