Creating the Leather Collection
Discover the details behind the Leather Collection. Artisan craftsmanship, family legacy and age-old techniques, ensuring each piece is cherished for years to come.
The latest evolution of Aman Essentials, the Leather Collection comprises handcrafted small and large leather accessories – from passport sleeves and wallets to tote bags and folios - designed as timeless additions to any wardrobe.
Through reinventing classic shapes, each piece has contemporary appeal yet serves as a lifelong travel companion, suitable for all seasons.
Made in France and Italy by small, family-owned workshops dating back to the 1940s, the highest level of leatherwork is visible throughout the collection, of which each piece passes through the hands of over 40 artisans before it arrives in the home of its owner.
This artisanal approach, combined with technical experience and leather sourced from early 20th century French tanneries, ensures longevity and quality of the highest level.
In the detail
The design language exclusive to the collection creates a connection to Aman’s heritage. For wallets, passport sleeves and card holders, the geometry of the Aman logo has been combined with the traditional Japanese folding technique of origami to create practical pocket detailing. For signature charms, the traditional process of wood marquetry is emulated with leather to create the most intricate of finishes.
Throughout the collection, luxury nappa linings echo the colourful landscapes of Aman destinations - White Sand, Aman Grey, Mink, Grass Green, Aqua, Sunrise and Earth while the Aman logo appears on every piece, softly hand-debossed, foil-embossed or within the exclusive Aman monogram.
