La Zingara Story
While I admit that I have always loved to create beautiful things, whether through cooking amazing food, growing bountiful gardens, or other artistic endeavors, it was the time spent with my Uncle Charlie that gave life to this small artisan business.
I was very fortunate to spend a lot of quality time with him learning how to cut and tool beautiful leathers. It was a daily learning process, much like that of the master teaching his apprentice the patience and nuance of an artisan craft. Just when I thought that I had perfected a piece of leather, Charlie would hold it in his hand, eyes closed, and tell me that I was close, but to look again.
I learned how to slow down and master patience. I also learned that time spent with someone so gifted was just the balm of love and support that we all need on our journeys.
He gave me a gift to share with the world. He is the inspiration.
It is important to note that each Artisan Handbag and Crossbody Strap is uniquely designed and handcrafted. They are made in very limited editions. No two pieces are exactly alike. The differences are intentional, therefore, the inventory for each is limited to one at a time.
