Meet the Tripp, our little ditty of a handbag. But don't let its small size lead you astray. Its wallet/handbag hybrid design provides optimal room for all your essentials.
This version takes what you love about the classic Tripp and makes it even more special with an intricate, exquisite hand-painted leopard print.
Each one has been painstakingly hand-painted by one dedicated and talented artist from the Lotuff Leather team. A labor-intensive glazing technique means that the paint will never chip away or wear off. The leather is deglazed, providing an undercoat, painted on, and then glazed again, creating a protective layer. It takes an average of 20-25 hours to hand-paint the surface of each bag.
An extended zipper makes interior access easy. The triple-gusset design creates a surprisingly roomy interior that can hold everything you need—cards, phone, and other daily or travel miscellany.
A removable cross-body strap attaches to a small, solid-brass d-ring on each side of the bag, allowing the bag to transform into a clutch when removed.
