The Spanish brand presents a new eco-responsible project. Inspired by the design of its “Flamenco” model, Loewe developed the “Surplus” project, presenting an innovative bag created from leather scraps from previous collections.

Already available on the firm’s online store as well as in certain Loewe and ReCraft points of sale, the new limited edition consists of a bag available in three different colors priced at 2,200 euros. The model is made from cowhide nappa leather, cut by professional artisans using a technique that removes thin layers from the leather surface.

Inspired by nature, the bag is reminiscent of topographical illustrations with its colorful wavy layers. Clutch style, it can also be worn across the body or on the shoulder and is inspired by the iconic model unveiled in the 1980s and redesigned by Jonathan Anderson in 2015, reminiscent of a typical flamenco skirt.

Founded in 1846 in Madrid, the brand was first a leather goods workshop before becoming a luxury house recognized worldwide for its artisanal know-how and original creations. Irish designer Jonathan Anderson, also behind the JW Anderson label, has been its artistic director since 2013.
