marlow goods: from nyc to chicago
mesias paredes and his wife patrizia are the magical duo behind the production of marlow bags. mesias trained as a shoe maker in ecuador before coming to nyc, where he set up his studio with the same simple tools and simple machines that he had used back home, cutting and sewing each and every leather good by hand. the two work together to make every pattern and style. after working together for 7 years, they are in tune with every edge to be finished and every gusset to be turned, producing a beatiful collection of leather goods that restore the foundation of how a quality handbag should look and feel.
