Here is the story behind a recent custom order:

“In 1984 my cousin, while traveling with the State Department’s Office of Security, was in Rome on a temporary assignment. She looked for a leather jacket in the latest Italian style and purchased it for herself. In the late 80’s, she gave it to me, a stay-at-home mom. I was thrilled.

Even though it has been out of style for years, I loved the color and feel of the leather.  And every year I offered it to my daughter, who politely declined.  This year she suggested that we recycle it into a handbag, which I wanted her to keep.  The 80s oversized fashion fad meant that there was even enough leather left over for cosmetic cases for both my cousin and myself.  I’m delighted that this jacket has a new home with all three of us. Once again, I’m thrilled! Thank you, Shannon.”
