The Making Of Selby Croco

The new Selby Croco bag is utterly luxe. Distinguished by its embossed crocodile-print leather, glossy and richly coloured, the hand-worked collection comprises an elegant carry-all that’s both architectural in its design yet soft in its structured form and well-suited to any wardrobe. Here, we go behind the scenes and inside the atelier to show you a few time-honoured artisanal techniques used in the making of this elegant new handbag collection.

1. THE TOOLS

Known for its meticulous approach to quality and design, Oroton balances tradition with modernity at every turn – contemporary shapes and structures are created with the most exceptional hand-worked craftsmanship and attention to detail.

2. THE CRAFT

With its removable strap, rolled handles and gilt hardware, the Selby Croco bag features the most luxurious accents, always created with a meticulous eye. Each piece is slowly and beautifully realised in the atelier.

3. PATTERN MAKING

The thinking that goes into a handbag's pattern and silhouette is a crucial step – while Oroton’s collections must be supremely elegant, form and function is also essential. Designers pay particular attention to how a bag takes shape, how it will be worn and how it will perform.

4. THE DETAILS

Glossy leathers in warm autumnal tones are key to the Selby style – each handbag is created in only the finest grade, which has been stamped to produce the most luxurious croc effect.

5. TRADITION MADE MODERN

With a nod to the 1940s, structured ladylike bags have made a return to the runways. The new Selby Croco bag captures the mood, combining an elegant style with the kind of roomy shape that houses a myriad of daily essentials.
