When you discover the ideal leather studio and you want to buy everything….
Recently, I wrote a feature article about Estonia-based Stella Soomlais Studio. If you have not read the article, please do so. I get so excited when I find a business that is doing good things and it is always a privilege when I am able to speak to the person behind the business, and share that information with you.

It might seem silly to be so excited about a bag and bracelet. It’s actually the craftsmanship I’m so happy about. You can tell by holding the items, feeling the weight and thickness, looking at the construction – that these items took time. In my mind, when someone takes care and time in their craftmanship, there is a level of – I don’t know what the word is – but, well …. QUALITY to it. I feel as if I can love these items for many years and not have to worry that they will come apart. Before now, I have never owned an item that was crafted especial for me. And now that I know how high quality craftsmanship it is, I already have lost the stars in my eyes when I go to the retail stores and see the mass produced handbags and accessories. I understand now, why buying real quality is surely worth the investment. And I wonder…how have we allowed ourselves to go so far away from this long-awaited and forever enjoyed appreciation for quality and craftsmanship.
Thank you for your interest!
