Inspired by the rugged, hand-forged armor of ancient warriors, The Leather Atelier tutu features layered panels of leather in varying tones and finishes. The impression it creates is one of hard-edged fragility – a warrior’s spirit within a delicate shell, alluding to the combined power and grace of dance.
Constructed entirely by hand, the tutu is a both an art object and a functional costume for the stage.
Dedicated to the production of handcrafted leather accessories and art objects, The Leather Atelier applies traditional craft techniques within a contemporary aesthetic. Each piece reflects the commitment and vision of the artist and is timeless in both material and design.
