Stuart Weitzman Does Salmon Bags | Nanai Skin Purses for Spring/Summer 2011

Posted on: Dec 2

Stuart Weitzman Nanai Salmon ToteStuart Weitzman has looked to the seas for inspiration in creating its spring/summer 2011 collection. The range features four stunning handbags embellished with nanai salmon leather.

The bags from Weitzman's Jade line are made from printed leather and accented with the salmon skins. The delicate scales of the nanai salmon leather make it appear a lot like snakeskin. It's made from organically raised salmon, so it's sustainable and relatively eco-friendly. The skins are colored with biodegradable dyes which are 100% chrome free. The lack of harsh chemicals is good for the environment and the skins, whose natural structure is preserved by the process.

If course, the bags are still made from animal skins which won't please PETA one iota. But the move towards sustainable exotics is to be commended, and the handbags are quite lovely.

The range is set to include shoulder bags, mini purses, totes, and clutches in a range of colors. Look for them in Stuart Weitzman stores and other high end retailers around the world next spring.
