“Columbus said the world is round?
Don’t you believe a word of that.
For I’ve been down to the edge of the world,
Sat on the edge where the wild winds whirled,
Peeked over the ledge where the blue smoke curls,
And I can tell you, boys and girls,
The world is FLAT!”
Shel Silverstein
It is an exploration of how a 3-dimentional object is born from a 2-dimentional material.
The collection consists of jewelry and bags hand made from genuine leather and brass accessories in combination with custom wood handles and cotton lining. Each unique bag’s earthy tones of leather and wood are contrasted with the vibrant hues of its fabric interior”.

The inspiring words that stand behind Ghita Abi Hanna’s words are as fascinating as her creations are. Last time I spoke to you about her work in my article Accidents Happen

Standing to my first favorite (shoes) item in an outfit, there comes bags in second. I mostly like to wear calm clothes and crown the look with the main piece. In cases it could be very flamboyant shoes and in others a very tasteful bag.

I particularly like how she integrates different kinds of materials with each other. I also admire her uncommon leather stitch-knitting technique. She puts a sense of modern style and identity into her work. This is what I personally look for when I  hunt for new designers. I like when I spot a lady wearing an Item that allows me do directly say: “Oh! she is wearing a Margherita!”
