Because we are proud of our bag, its design, the way it is produced and the premium quality it’s made of, we want to give you an insight into the making of TheSLCTD Chain Bag and the vision behind it.
TheSLCTD Chain Bag is a great example of European craftsmanship. The materials are produced by Italian family businesses that have refined their know-how and skills for generations. It is assembled in Ubrique, a village in the hills of Andalusia that is famous for, and has a long tradition in, processing leather goods.
TheSLCTD Chain Bag is an honest product. We only work with partners that create a comfortable working environment for their employees and respect international safety and environmental laws. We aim for a beneficial situation for all parties involved: from craftsman to customer.

Our leather is 100% made in Italy by a Milanese company that has belonged to the top of the luxury market for decades. Our bags are made of the best a hide has to offer. The Chiffon Nero Chain Bag is made of beautiful full grain leather, which is the strongest and most durable part of the hide. Our Cachemire Elefante and Cachemire Sella are premium quality suedes with a velvet touch.
Due to its strict tanning process Italian leather is superior to leathers from other countries and is regarded as the best leather in world. It is a characteristic of full-grain leather that, over time, it will develop a patina from being handled. Patinas provide a protective covering to materials that would otherwise be damaged by corrosion or weathering.
All leather used for TheSLCTD Chain Bag is calf skin which makes it extremely soft. We would like to emphasize that all our leather is a by-product of the meat industry.
The eye-catcher and name-sake of TheSLCTD chain bag is the golden chain. Produced in Florence, Italy the chain is made of brass which is not only a long-lasting material but also gives the heaviness that only luxurious bags have. After galvanization in gold the chain is polished for an optimal result.
Manufacturing TheSLCTD Chain Bag is a precise and time consuming task, the assembling alone takes up to 100 minutes, that demands dedication and attention to detail. As you can see in our ‘Making of’ we have the honor to work together with true craftsmen and -women who have been working in the leather making industry for many years.
