Mélanie Rouan's Profile
ABUTILON aims to pair simple high quality materials with thoughtful design to create singular handbags and leather goods. We believe in charming, functional shapes and carefully picked materials to create quality and long lasting products.
Our inspiration comes from friends, every day life and needs, craftsmanship and antique finds. Supporting local industry when possible in sourcing our materials is part of our design process. Our handbags and small leather accessories are made by hand in our Brooklyn studio.
Local production is a meaningful part of our design process and philosophy.
