SOLA MIA is a modern day artisan atelier with a passion for craftsmanship and design. We trust in traditional techniques that have been passed down through generations and we have finely tuned our masterful craft to a level of sophistication unrivalled by other ateliers. We pay the utmost attention to detail at every step of the bag making process.
No two Sola Mia handbags are the same, and our craftsmen put together each individual one by hand. Extreme care is exercised to ensure we adhere to the specifics of every design. We assign one expert craftsman to every stage of the process, from start to finish.
Our master cutter inspects each hide thoroughly, carefully marking any blemishes or imperfections. In order to ensure every leather part selected will be blemish free, he marks on the hide the exact location of every handbag part
To ensure extreme accuracy in our handbag proportions, we prepare for every leather piece a specially crafted leather cutting knife with the exact proportions of the leather piece. This allows a cutting accuracy of up to one tenth of a millimeter and a perfectly balanced handbag.
Every leather edge on our bags is carefully painted by hand. We use only the best Italian edge paints. Once the paint has dried, we repeat the process five times until the perfect leather edge is achieved.
Our Craftsmen then proceed to individually craft the handbag.
Each Sola Mia handbag design is unique, no two bags are alike. Therefore extreme care is exercised to ensure meticulous adherence to each handbag specific design.
Our craftsmen work on each bag individually, with a single expert craftsman taking full ownership of each handbag crafting process, from beginning to finish.
This process ensures that each Sola Mia handbag is a one-of-a-kind creation, meticulously crafted and finished.
Our experienced craftsmen are like family to us. We value their input at every stage of the process and welcome their ideas on how we can further refine our techniques. They apply their knowledge, creativity and passion for leather to every piece, helping us to produce the most finely crafted handbags on the market.
