Thaden: Crafting Elegance, One Stitch at a Time photos Sarah Fürbringer and Lukas Rübenacker

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Thaden handbags embody a fusion of unique, sculptural aesthetics and artisanal craftsmanship. Each piece is a testament to the meticulous skills of Italy’s most esteemed craftsmen, steeped in a legacy of tradition. Their standout creation, ‘The WHOLE,’ showcases this dedication to artistry: it demands an entire day’s devotion for a single bag, brought to life through painstaking hand-stitching.

In October, Harrods recognized the distinct allure of Thaden, curating an exclusive showcase in their Penthouse. Displayed alongside the illustrious Schiaparelli, Thaden was hailed as ‘The New It Bag’ – a testament to its emerging status in the pantheon of luxury fashion.
