In addition to passport cases, handbags, wallets, and more, the brand's new Leather Collection includes 19 items. Using authentic leathers sourced from artisanal calf, lamb, and goat skins, each of the leather items in the new collection is handcrafted in Italy and France using a process that is inspired by traditional artisanal processes.

There is also a growing segment of the market for affordable luxury brands in addition to traditional luxury brands. As a result, a number of startups have created customized luxurious products that cater to the needs of consumers.
