Adopt an elegant set including these two pieces carefully crafted in the pure
style of the 40s!


The belt model "CLEO" is directly inspired by a belt from the textile
restriction period.
Belt composed of two parts, made of cardboard covered with fabric, and
connected at the back by two buttons and at the front by a lacing. Style very
representative of the models of the 40s in vogue in France at the time.
This piece is cut in a period wool, with dark brown, red, turquoise and cream
borders. The lining is made of chocolate brown crepe (period fabric also). Aged
brass metal carnations, red lace, red mother-of-pearl buttons tinted red with
navy blue flat lace flanges.

The bag model "MARCEL" is also directly inspired by a bag from the textile
restriction period.
Adjustable shoulder bag, practical, very representative of the models of the
40s in vogue in France during the period of restriction.
This model is mounted on a cardboard "skeleton" following the technique used
at the time to compensate for the lack of raw materials. The fabric used,
period, is the same as on the matching belt, a dark brown, turquoise red and
cream checkered wool. The shoulder strap, the closing pieces, and the strip of
sides / bottom are made in a plain dark brown wool. The seams and stitching are
dark brown, the lining cut in a 40s silk with cream polka dots on a bright red
background, and has a small pocket. Buckles and eyelets in brass-colored metal
for the attachment of the shoulder strap.
Bag stitched machine then assembled by hand, requiring between 6 and 8 hours
of work in all.

Keep in mind that our bags are made using period techniques and materials:
they are not off-road parts, it is advisable to take a minimum of care, and to
absolutely avoid exposing them to water!

WARNING: some shades, such as shades of red, pink, green or purple, are very
difficult to photograph! I do my best to make the colors as close as possible
to reality in my descriptions and photos. However, do not forget that the hues
can also vary from one screen to another! Do not hesitate to contact me if you
have any doubt.
