Tamara Salman – The Minerva Collection and the Isis Collection

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I met Tamara years ago in London when she was the Creative DIrector at Liberty. Six months ago she launched her own handbag collection which is now stocked exclusively at Fortnum & Mason and online www.tamarasalman.com also through La maison Couture online.

The Tamara  Salman collection is hand tooled and entirely made in Italy. she spent her formative years between Iraq and England. Imagine picnicking in the Gardens of Babylon one week and the next wandering through the British Museum or Chatsworth. Her trademark logo is inspired by theBabylonian Lamassu and Egyptian Sphinx. The Minerva Collection is laser cut calf leather with contrasting shades of suede. Blood red leather mixed with fuchsia suede, combinations of sky blue and orange mix Tuscany with Babylon.

The Isis Collection is print on coated canvas with a design inspired by ancient Etruscan art.
