Crafted in an unusal combination of dove horsehair and bullskin and inspired by countryside pursuits, the Polo Small has an equestrian sensibility in a chic and practical bag and is ideal for daily use. The Polo embodies the exceptional Asprey craftsmanship, with an oversized flapover that fastens with a twist reinterpretation of the Asprey claw & window closure and lifts up to reveal a panel of velvety nubuck set into front. Saddlery detailing and a shoulder strap that can be set to sit on the shoulder or cross body complete this timeless shoulder bag.
The Polo Small features polished palladium finish hardware. It has a main interior compartment with slim pockets front and back, all fitted out with kid suede and a flat pocket across the back. The shoulder strap features stitched detailing, and is adjustable by leather covered press buttons. It comes with a customised kid suede cushion.

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.
