At Diespeker, we like to push the boundaries of working with terrazzo. So, when we were asked to create a solid terrazzo handbag for a London fashion designer’s first permanent retail concession at Harrods, how could we refuse?
The client specification was for a handbag that perfectly matched the designer’s signature handbag, including a strap and handles – also in terrazzo. The handbag was cast as a block in resin based terrazzo, and hand carved to the exact design.
A specific feature of the designer’s handbag range is the addition of fun charms, and the creation of the terrazzo bag had to incorporate two ‘D’ rings to support a charm chain.
At the same time, Diespeker made resin terrazzo countertops and table tops for the concession, with gold trinkets cast within the terrazzo.
