Jolie Su’s handmade Toquilla straw hats will always be a permanent part of the Lesetta Collection. We love the new style for 2021 - EVA. These beauties are hand woven in Ecuador according to traditional techniques recognized by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. In accordance with Jolie Su values, the material is of the highest quality and sourced from the local community. The meticulous attention to detail is carried through the finishings consisting of high quality vintage ribbon, along with a leather inner band that secures the shape of the hat and gives it a truly luxurious feel.
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.
