It can be risky making such innovations, but we had every confidence in our designs and, of course, in the skill and expertise of our artisans, to create something really unique and exciting in the world of exotic leather.

Stripes of crocodile leather alternating with soft and supple anaconda in a curvy yet stylish hobo handbag, this is just one of Gleni’s groundbreaking new designs from their newly released 2012 collection. The all-Italian artisan producer of exotic leather handbags and accessories has really pushed the boat out this season, experimenting with delicious and unusual combinations of precious leathers to stunning effect.
Working with such valuable materials as crocodile, anaconda and ostrich leathers it can be risky to push out the boundaries. Expensive raw materials tend to encourage manufacturers to be conservative, but Gleni’s daring has paid off with dividends.

“We are extremely pleased with the way our new collection has been received so far,” commented Gleni’s director, Arben Qoku. ”It can be risky making such innovations, but we had every confidence in our designs and, of course, in the skill and expertise of our artisans, to create something really unique and exciting in the world of exotic leather.”

Perhaps the most striking are the generous tote bags in top quality crocodile flanked by side panels of python for deftly contrasting texture. Prize for innovation goes to the aforementioned crocodile and python hobo where the alternating stripes of leathers add a fascinating extra dimension to this unique handbag. For subtle elegance the ostrich and anaconda combination is hard to beat, the signature polka dots of the ostrich covering the front and back panels of a very feminine structured bag, while the delicate and uniform texture of anaconda gives an unusual depth to the sides. All these new designs are lined with nappa leather and finished to an extremely high standard.

This is the first year that Gleni have introduced anaconda to their Royal collection. This prestigious leather is prized for its even and uniform scales and softness. With supplies severely restricted by law, it is much coveted, so Gleni expect to attract many more discerning buyers with this elegant addition to their repertoire, where is has been applied to several of their classic structured handbag designs as well as some of their larger slouchy totes and hobos.

Gleni’s new Royal collection continues to include many classic designs in single leathers, but here too Gleni have been innovating and improving with new coloring techniques, in particular with their ostrich leather where they have achieved an enviable satin effect. Colours remain classic, with dark nut browns and blacks or brighter caramels, cognacs and whiskies selected for bags that are designed to outlive fashion whims and endure for a lifetime of classic elegance.

Spring blossoms come to mind when looking at the new colours in Gleni’s spring/summer python collection. Delicate pastel shades in unusual combinations recollect the peach blush of fresh rose petals, or the fresh pink of woodland cyclamen, as the painstaking hand painting of the precious python skin blends several shades into a graduated symphony of colour. There are more audacious colours too with metallic hints in gold, skilful brushwork picking out the python patterns to create an original masterpiece of every bag. Summer shades include the irresistible safari reflecting the colours of the desert with grey and amber tones and a refined shade of matt salmon with grey highlights. Each bag is unique with the individuality of each skin highlighted by hand-painting effects, so the only way to pick the perfect one to match personal tastes is to browse through Gleni’s online boutique http://www.gleniboutique.com/.

Looking forward, Gleni is currently working on a very special collection of feminine handbags where the emphasis is on line and form, as well of course as their signature top quality exotic leathers. More news of this collection with its new logo design will be released shortly.
