We are very proud to be part of ‘The Embellished Handbag': A Celebration of 250 years of Fashion and Embroidery’ showcases Hand & Lock’s collaborations with a selection of internationally renowned luxury accessory companies which feature an array of one of a kind, uniquely embellished handbags.

The private unveiling of the thirteen piece collection was held at the Victoria and Albert museum in London on February 1st 2017. The collaboration showcases the fusion of the renowned Hand & Lock embroidery with thirteen different brand aesthetics. Drawing inspiration from a variety of avenues, each of the thirteen brands is bringing to life a visual identity with roots in their brand history. 

After embarking on a world tour, the embellished handbags will be auctioned at Grosvenor House by world renowned auction house Sotheby’s where proceeds will go to the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) and the Hand & Lock Prize for Embroidery.

Using ethically sourced, vegetable-tanned calfskin from Italy, Alfie Douglas creates a minimalistic, distinctive, and unisex style for this bag. The Hand & Lock embroidery reflects and evokes the feeling of marble using silk floss threads and appliquéd silk.
