Lets dive into spring with new fabric totes!

We are getting ready for spring and for that we have made our first new seasons model  - fabric tote bag with leather details! We are experiencing great interest in totes as also one of our long standing best seller is leather tote bag! 

After some consideration and feedback from clients we have understood that sometimes you just want simpler and more accessible bag for everyday use. So we made it mostly with waterproof fabric and sturdy leather straps. Bag came out very spacious and is already a favorite among Maruu Leather team!

Some more collaboration with Vanity Fair

As festive winter holidays came close we decided that it would be great if we could get more exposure from some respectful source as Vanity Fair that we already did one photo session for!

So for December issue that came out it November we decided to advertise for our most popular product - leather handbag! As we also needed great outfit, came cooperation with renown designer Natalija Jansone from Latvia! Our goal was to represent the indigo colored bag in blue tones all around so we chose one of Natalijas Breitling short coats!

Here is the final result that fused greatly with magazines cover with royal British family!

Next was January issue that came about in December! For this we chose our black leather backpack and decided to play with contrasting red tones! Our friend and one of our models Laura Birša from textile design faculty presented her custom made jumper for this session together with accessories from local design brand NADA! We are really happy for results here as photos came out great!

Maruu Leather in Vanity Fair London November issue!

It has been great month for us, not only we have made a new handbag but also got a publication in Vanity Fair London! 

Lets start with new reconstructed handbag! More or less our collections grow organically from previous efforts making sure that all the aspects of design and usabilty are in par with our high quality standarts that just grows higher with each new model! This time we took some time to look at crossbags and after many suggestions thought about ways how to improve it so it becomes even more convenient! There was a need for these bags to have a handle and also a sturdier bottom so we made them so and also changed the looks of opening so the zipper now more naturally blends in with rest of the body! Here is a link to these new handbags - https://www.maruuleather.com/collections/handbags !

Designing and adjusting Maruu Leather style!

   Our Maruu Leather Tote bag has long been one of our favorite products. We ourselves love this bag so much that we can't even imagine going outside without it. But this has been long time of careful design planning and adjusting small details to suit our taste. Each evolution comes with new trials of implementing ideas into reality and making them more user friendly as well as attractive!

The core process stays the same as we will sew this bag carefully with hand making it super sturdy and durable! All the changes that we make are only visual!

Here you can see our most recent changes in the Tote design:

Old quadruple design

Whire tote bag

New more roundish design without circle in middle

   We really think that these adjustments makes Maruu Tote more interesting and austere! What do you think? Maybe you have suggestions? Leave a comment below!
