'Mancrafted' must-haves from Phive Rivers

A woman carries her whole world in her bag. It is an accessory she is dearly attached to, and wouldn't mind splurging on every now and then. Phive Rivers, the fairly new Italian accessory brand is here with quite a lot at offer for the modern woman that includes premium quality leather bags- all handcrafted to perfection.

Phive Rivers entered India as an online retailer of affordable but high quality luxury handbags that caters to the young fashion lovers of India and the world. It strives to compete globally in the creative leadership of designer Valentino Buffoni who hails from Tuscany, Italy. His designs draw inspiration from the traditional colours, materials and techniques used in the handicrafts in The Tuscany region of Italy. The brand picks up the most favoured fashion trends from the runways and trend shows across the globe and materializes them into pure leather beauties that you can shop here. Starting with a price range of 7, 000 INR, the brand also comes out with its most exclusive collections twice a year, priced as high as 50, 000 INR.

  

One of the most interesting things about the brand is its manufacturing process. Each bag that you see on the website is made completely by hand. 'Untouched by machine' is something that the brand certainly takes pride in. In fact, the brand gets its name from the 5 men involved in the manufacturing of a Phive Rivers bag- The Cutter, The Paster, The Stitcher, The Fixer and The Finisher. What you can expect from the brand in the coming year is a very vintage, rough and rugged collection that is somewhat new for India, where a majority of people still prefer clean, refined looking leather handbags.
