TALLOWIN – London-based accessories by Mark Tallowin

Dear Shaded Viewers,

 'TALLOWIN' was launched one year ago and is one of the few brands that offers entirely hand-stitched products. In the beginning the brand focused on women's leather handbags but now it proposes a line equally good for men and women. The 'Peak' is designed to fit both credit and business cards, including the slightly larger 'Meishi' cards of Japan. It uses two different qualities of leather bringing the perfect play between rigidity and flexibility.

The 'Cave' takes its name from the cave-like cutout section on the wallet's reverse. The hand stitched pieces use irish linen thread. All of the work is done in-house.
