What makes your line innovative and worth of the Best Handbag in Overall Style and Design?
All accessories hand-crafted by Alexandra Klimek are designed to express an emotion and make the potential owner feel unique.The uniqueness of the line flows from the combination of shapes and materials employed(leather, wood), which create a striking accent to products' silhouettes by combining modern design with leather craftsmanship. Inspiration behind every product comes from that feeling of happiness while doing sports or simple physical activities (playing basketball), hence their rather geometric forms.
