Time­less Lux­ury

Exquisitely crafted hand­bags in­spired by Bent­ley’s her­itage crafts­man­ship

Golf Asia - - LUXE TIMEPIECES -

Draw­ing on the crafts­man­ship for which Bent­ley is renowned, and echo­ing the sleek, con­tem­po­rary lines of the Con­ti­nen­tal GT, each sump­tu­ous hand­bag has been metic­u­lously crafted to ex­ude sub­lime style and el­e­gance. Sub­tle fea­tures, in­clud­ing leather cross-stitch­ing and the un­mis­tak­able ma­trix grille pat­tern, dis­creetly echo the inim­itable de­sign of Bent­ley’s cel­e­brated grand tourer.

Bent­ley sources the finest Ital­ian leather for its hand­bags and leather goods, hand­crafted by skilled Tus­can ar­ti­sans. Renowned as a world cen­tre of the finest qual­ity leather pro­duc­tion, the area be­tween Florence and Pisa con­tin­ues tra­di­tional pro­cesses to­day, with leather be­ing cut, fit­ted, sewn and stitched by highly skilled ar­ti­sans in “pel­let­terie” work­shops.

Each bag takes be­tween 15 and 20 hours to cre­ate, typ­i­cally us­ing 1.5 to 2 square me­ters of leather and in­cor­po­rat­ing im­pec­ca­bly fit­ted hand­bag frames. The ex­quis­ite cross-stitch­ing de­tail is ex­e­cuted by hand, an ex­ten­sion of the metic­u­lous artistry found within Bent­ley’s car in­te­ri­ors.
