We have a truly wonderful client in Singapore who has become more than an ambassador, she is now a co-creator.
Just before Christmas Stella purchased one of our Fire & Hide Post Bags, it is made from our signature yellow fire-hose and limited leather off-cuts rescued from the production of Burberry leather goods. We collected very little of this specific yellow, which meant the piece is a one of a kind.
In the ensuing months Stella sent us several lovely photos of her travels with this sunny yellow handbag while she was saving for something unique for her home. She chose to design an original Elvis & Kresse leather rug, using our customisation tool. This allowed her to choose both the perfect size and colour and also embed her own design.
The idea for the piece came to her from a meditation session. Two subtle hearts, weaving themselves together, overlapping and intertwined.
She wanted to use all of the colours we currently work with for the leather rug collection, and to ensure that they worked well together. From a practical perspective, she also wanted a multi-purpose piece that could achieve many objectives in her Singapore flat, it needed to be a hallway runner, a yoga mat and also a rug to fit in front of a two meter long sofa.
We were so pleased to meet Stella in May, when she came to Tonge Mill to see first hand how her custom leather rug was assembled and to meditate in our space. We eagerly await the results of her next inspiration.
