Novel Fineries’ latest collection—a contemporary and exciting interpretation of nature’s most exotic reptile—is destined to become a favourite. The Serpentine Knot is a belt that can double as a necklace, using one of the most celebrated materials that defines everlasting enjoyment in luxury goods: leather.
Braiding leather is an art form that spans many cultures and thousands of years, requiring a sophisticated level of craftsmanship to transform and manipulate tough animal hide into a soft yet strong leather. The method is painstaking in its execution, with no shortcuts, and requires three times the leather and hours of dedication. In order to achieve perfection, the team at Novel Fineries followed a rigorous process of minimising waste in order to learn and repeat this refined craftsmanship.
