We love the fabulous eco-luxury brand, Thalie Paris, and are delighted to be the first to offer their sustainable luxury handbags in the US. The Livia Bag is the signature design of the "Sushi" collection. Made of Ictyos Squama Luxe "marine leather" that comes from the recycling of salmon leather from agro-food industries and French sushi restaurants.
We adore their thoughtful design as well as the chic style of the Livia bag. This single handled wristlet is adorned with Thalie’s signature triangle shape and "Marine Leather" patchwork detail that offers a unique color and texture. We love the almost metallic look of the Marine Leather and the bright colors of these bags. The Livia represents the perfect combination of innovation, sustainability and high fashion.
ICTYOS MARINE LEATHER: Developed in Lyon by Ictyos Cuirs Marins de France, Ictyos uses vegetable tanning---a process that does not involve harmful substances like chrome and heavy metals that is widely used in traditional tanning. Thanks to Ictyos, Thalie Paris is able to create value-added products by transforming salmon skin into a luxurious resource which reduces our environmental footprint and thus contributes to a circular and restorative system.
Traveling from America, more often than not, means arriving in places much older than our hometowns. Lands where original techniques were invented and have been used for centuries. Places where natural beauty and its resources are the design inspiration. The excitement for us is to discover a maker who has mastered the old techniques and pushes its evolution into the current world of fashion.
Everywhere we go, we seek out exquisite pieces. Works of the highest standards that are created, not manufactured. We have been fortunate to meet artists and designers who have shown us how sincerely they put their hearts and souls into what they do. These are the makers who make things the way they were originally meant to be made - to endure.
The pieces in the Lesetta Collection are carefully selected. The investment in these works is not only financial, but also emotional. We source items that can complete an outfit and elevate a mood. Things you won’t see on everyone as you walk down the street.
My career began in the African safari business many years ago, a venture that led ultimately to my exploring similar operations in Argentina. That experience, combined a few years later with living in Italy, led me to knowing that exploring the world would be a priority for me. Over the years, I have treasured most the artisanal pieces I have purchased during my travels, exceptional items that weave high fashion and fine craftsmanship. To find these uniquely beautiful things, then, has become my obsession.
