So extremely proud of my friend Alexandra – she has worked hard on her brand since day one and it’s all coming together. She has landed her first LA-based stockist in Malibu (one of my favourite places on the west coast) for @DeGalluchat. Her brand specialises in the design of high quality shagreen accessories, using leather that is sourced from discarded skins of stingrays.
Specifically, it is by-product from the fishing industry in Asia and uses only waste product. Collections are made by small family run workshops in France and Italy, selected for their unique craftsmanship and traditional use of materials. The brand is so beautiful, check it out. I am pictured above wearing one of her gorgeous cuffs. DeGalluchat also partnered with @FRENDS on the beautiful earphones I travel with often and frequently (right now I am listening to music with them whilst I read @THE___TRIBE postcards and work).
For my French followers, De Galluchat is based in Paris so I strongly recommend popping in to see her. Find out more about the brand here.
