Rosa – a name that conjures up a picture of the beauty of an open flower, and literally means ‘pink rose’. It was not such a rosy picture though for Rosa Balistreri, an Italian singer and musician, that grew up in the sorrow and captivity of an impoverished woman in the 1950s living in Sicily, Southern Italy. Rosa’s experience drove her to flee her family home in her early 20s and seek out a life beyond the violence and ignorance of her rural upbringing. Some say that it was her harsh upbringing that charged her deep voice with a distinct melancholy that made her a Sicilian icon of the 20th century.
Speaking of icons - our Rosa Grande Crossbody x Wallet could be exactly that. This beautifully gathered leather pouch-like handbag has an intricately crafted, curved closure making its soft grain texture a standout feature. Whether travelling by bus or train, visiting museums or monuments, this petite handbag with removable straps and wristlet, carries a ‘grande’ punch.

Our leather is the best quality full grain cow hide and is sourced from Australia and Europe and is custom tanned to our specifications using Italian techniques and products.
Our leather is tanned and our bags manufactured in a family run factory in Pakistan. They are very proud of their skill with leather which has been passed down through generations!
Our bags are designed by us in Sydney, Australia and shipped from our warehouse and flagship store in Sutherland in the south of Sydney. Read our story
We have endeavoured to provide web images of our leather products that closely match their actual colours but due to the differing colour settings of computer, phone and tablet displays, we cannot guarantee that the colour you see on your screen will exactly match what you receive.
You may find that good old fashioned warm water on a damp cloth and a gentle rub will get rid of any marks! And be sure to let it air dry! There are also some great leather cleaning products you can purchase and we have had some success cleaning off marks with an “authentic art eraser”. Pressing the art eraser over and over onto the marks sometimes removes them completely!
Our bags are crafted with full grain leather (the best quality and strongest type of leather) and in their most natural state it is best to protect the leather using one of the many leather care products on the market. We like leather conditioner as it protects and conditions the leather. We have found creams and leather rubs work much better on our leather, rather than sprays. More about leather care
