Tamara Salman - London, UK
A luxury, unique and exquisite handbag collection designed in London and beautifully handmade in Italy by renowned artisans and workshops using the highest quality leathers and materials, ethically sourced mixing craftsmanship and modern technology.
The founder and creative director of her eponymous luxury accessories brand, Tamara Salman only works with renowned artisans and ethical leather producers to guarantee the highest quality for each of her bags, from the materials used through to the finished piece. These include some of the most prestigious factories in Italy whom she has worked with for many years. Each bag combines traditional craftsmanship with modern technology to create truly timeless pieces.
Tamara Salman has worked for some of the most prestigious fashion houses in London, Paris and Milan, including Liberty London. Tamara launched her own label in 2014 and has developed a covetable handbag brand which encompasses an exotic design ethos pulled from her modern-bohemian style.
Half British, half Arabic and having travelled extensively in Asia as a child she is inspired by and draws from these two very diverse yet intertwined cultures. Inspired by the patterns of ancient Etruscan art, Tamara designs from her London studio, she is fascinated by ancient architecture and art, from old Roman or Egyptian tomb paintings to murals and ancient ruins.
Tamara’s collection is a magical mix of print, pattern and colour - marrying specialist techniques with modern structure and design. There are two ranges of signature handbags, both inspired by myths & the ancient world. The Minerva collection is made up of intricate laser-cutting in luxurious leather juxtaposed with contrast colour suede. The Fresco collection features vividly coloured contemporary digital designs printed onto coated canvas and trimmed with high shine leather.
Made in limited numbers Tamara Salman bags are rare, exquisite and whilst designed in London, are crafted with leathers from Italy. Much like the pieces of art that inspire Tamara, each of her bags is a collectable limited edition item designed to become heirloom favourites and future design classics. Distribution is limited to guarantee exclusivity.
