The highly original combination materials make this Belle unique. The flap is decorated with an artisanal stripe detail created from dove nubuck & woven horsehair on the bullskin & nubuck handbag.
The Belle is a re-imagining of classic Asprey design. It has a soft construction, elegant styling and generous opening which make it the perfect choice for day or business use. The gently curved top-line and side profile and the exclusive Asprey clasp lend it a distinctive look. Carry by hand, on the shoulder or across the body.
There is a pocket on the back of the Belle, and the interior features a zip pocket and a slip pocket. The top handle is finely crafted and attached through eyelets, and there is a choice of two shoulder straps – a long shoulder strap and a wide shorter strap. Polished palladium finish hardware.
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.
