About this project

The Firmitas collection reflects elaborate appliqué decorations that translate the metamorphosis of unsuspected heroes of ancient Greek mythology into diurnal and nocturnal birds like the crow, the nightingale, the swallow and the dove.
The birds’ shapes are captured and interpreted first into fine drawings before leather is hand-cut in multiple pieces, hand-painted and then hand-sewn together in the final design.
