You may know by now that we’re big advocates of buying quality over quantity. We’re all about well-made products, the ones that last longer, and the ones we’ll love just as much next summer as we do this. And if there’s a story behind the brand (that quite literally inspires us with every step) – we’re totally sold. Oh, and they have to be super pretty, of course.
The Australian lifestyle brand, St Agni, does just this. And so well, we might add.
As we approach the longed-for warmer months of summer aka ‘sandal season’, there couldn’t be a better time for the coveted Byron Bay-based lifestyle brand to release their much anticipated Spring 19 collection (launching globally today!) As well as embracing naturally dyed, vegetable tanned leathers it also debuts two styles featuring knitted leather – a technique developed exclusively by St Agni. Yes, this is super exciting stuff.
Each piece is knitted to shape using a manually operated loom, and then finished by hand to ensure the artisanal feel the brand is so esteemed for. “This collection embraces beauty in subtlety, which allows each piece’s artisanal leather craft to become the design focus,” – St Agni Founder and designer, Lara Fells, explains the collection. “We spent over 18 months experimenting with the classic art of knitting to bind and hand weave leather in a way we haven’t seen used anywhere else.”
A little background info: St Agni Founders, Lara & Matt Fells, started the brand from their home in 2014. Their vision was simple – to create versatile, refined, durable pieces using quality materials with minimal impact on the environment. And despite having reached a global cult-like status, the brand continues to stick to it’s roots as a small family business.
We might be expecting a few ‘April showers’ this month, but it really is the best time to shop sandals and slides, particularly these ones – We have a feeling they will sell like hot cakes!
