Why to buy: IRERI’s handbags bring the heart and soul of Florentine craftsmanship into your hands. Teresa, the founder, was often inspired by the rich archive stored at Limberti’s firm, in the outskirts of Florence. The now 87 years old Luigi Limberti has been a handbag manufacturer since the age of 15, inspiring whoever came across him with his skills in actualising ideas that one might have thought were not possible. IRERI has always aimed at offering an evergreen collection, delivering designs that have become iconic for the brand and its customers. Iconic because these shapes were designed to ‘stay’ rather than ‘fade’ after one or two seasons. The aim is to improve the existing designs a little each time.
What we love: The name IRERI is the fusion between two names: Irene and Erica, the twin daughters of Teresa. Today, the two girls are working to achieve their mother’s dream. Delivering handbags with a unique story. The designs are minimal yet they express the essence of an evergreen elegance. Each IRERI handbag is made unique by the woman who wears it, projecting her own personality on the bag. As each of us evolves with time, likewise, the leather improves, acquiring a more beautiful patina day by day. IRERI handbags are an investment for life.

Why to buy: Are you ready to deep dive into an imaginative world with "Unique Unicorns" and "Ready-Rocket." The brandname already reveals it a little, as the Berlin-based Katha Hirt fulfilled her long-term dream with the creation of this label. Her children's bed linen, fairly produced in Portugal from 100% organic cotton, brings great colors and dreamy motifs into the children's rooms. Besides bed linen and pillows, the label also prints various paper accessories and fabric masks with its cute designs.
What we love: For a long time, the aunt and studied textile manager was looking for high-quality bed linen for her nieces, but did not find what she was looking for. And so Katha, who worked in retail management at "lala Berlin" among others, without further hesitation founded her label KATHA covers with great attention to detail. The team also includes graphic designer Vicky, who imaginatively brings the prints to life and completes the creativity of the founder with her individual touch. However, it was a long, creative process until the finished prints were ready: each print seemed either too perfect or too impersonal - until Vicky suddenly took the pen in her left hand and thus gave the prints the necessary individuality.
