MARIPOSA - Hand-Molded Leather Butterfly Keychain
Approx. 2.5"H x 2.5"W x 0.75"D
Gianni hand-molds each leather rose, petal by petal, using a unique technique that was inspired by the ancient manufacturing process of Venetian theatre masks. See how Gianni explains this in his own words! Watch video.
The leather used is vegetable-tanned Vacchetta leather with natural grains and wrinkles, resulting in variations in tonality. It's beauty and patina will grow with age and use. The leather says "Eternally Classy"', the inventive designs say "Unique"', and the Italian origin says "Only the Best"!
A beautifully handcrafted butterfly keychain with a new style! The incredible detail Gianni has put onto the Mariposa shows everything from the butterfly's antennas, the wing patterns and the shape of the wings. Each wing has been hand-molded and sewn together by the artisans in Italy!
