The Virtus handbags are expertly crafted by skilled artisans with the utmost precision and care. The entire Virtus handbag collection is made in Italy utilizing only the highest quality materials. The leather comes from the most valued part of the hide – smooth finish bags are crafted from supple calfskin, while the V-pattern quilted pieces are created using nappa leather, chosen for its exceptionally soft hand. Boasting a 24karat gold finish, metal hardware follows the shape of a Baroque letter V, embellished with stylized acanthus leaves. Accents feature colorful tweed or intricate patterns embroidered with metal thread.
