Loewe Launches A Collector’s Gift Box Featuring Exclusive Loewe Icons

LOEWE has curated a gift box that contains five of its iconic handbags – Puzzle, Hammock, Gate, Flamenco and Balloon – in their small-scale ‘nano’ form and crafted in nappa calfskin. The nano Gate and nano Hammock bags are exclusive to the box as these sizes have only been produced for this very special set. The colours of the nano Puzzle, nano Balloon and nano Flamenco are also limited in edition to the set, so can only be found in the nano size in this collectors’ box. The Yellow, Primary Red, Candy, Lagoon and Rosemary colourways are selected from the iconic LOEWE range of hues.

In honour of Japanese artisanship, the box itself is based on the traditional kiribako containers and is hand-crafted from Paulownia wood in Japan. Kiribako boxes are commonly used for gifting and storing valuable items. The LOEWE Anagram is laser engraved on the lid of the box, a technique that enhances the wood grain in a darker hue. Inside, the compartments for each of the products are lined in corresponding coloured calfskin. Their names are also embossed in gold at the rear of the compartments.

As a final nod to artisans in Japan, the box is tied together with sanada-himo cord —a narrow, tightly-woven fabric that was originally used by samurais for binding their armour and was adapted to other tasks because of its functionality. Different colourways correspond with particular families and clans.
