Lady Turco's Profile

About

After a life time of creating fabric art in every form imaginable, my current and favorite passion is fashioning handbags from vintage fur.
Trained as a "old world" tailor, I bring many of the demanding criteria to this medium.
The thought of letting beautiful pieces of history go unloved and not remembered gave me the idea to create a new kind of beauty from these treasured articles. Even the leather used in the trims are from leather coats or are a by-product of the food industry. This way, my fur bags can become "retreasured", giving a new generation of women the chance to own something beautiful..
