First Finds: Zagliani

January 6, 2011

If you haven’t heard of Zagliani before, we’re really excited to introduce you to this unusual, but beautiful, handbag line. Created by an entrepreneurial dermatologist who figured there must be other ways to use his workplace techniques, the collection fuses exotic skins and silicone to create a whole new genre of luxury.

Intrigued yet? Here’s the story:┬áMauro Orietti-Carella had the novel idea to apply the same concept of Botox on people to the animal skin of bags. Once injected with his certain mix of silicone and resins, the skins are buttery-soft, luxurious, and wear even better than a traditional skin.

Although the Italian brand has been around since 1947, Orietti-Carella got on board in 2006, relaunching the company with a modern face. Regardless of the ‘Botox for Bags’ idea, Zagliani makes gorgeous, timeless bags handcrafted at its factory in Milan.
