Il Merlo Bags

Kyoko Morita was born in Chicago and brought up in Nara, Japan. After studying product and interior design in Kyoto, she decided to come to Florence to get to know Italian culture and to learn how to make leather bags. Here she attended the Leather School and then Dimitri Villoresi’s workshop. She finally opened her own laboratory in 2018, producing bags that are unique and original, playing with shapes and colours. Like the Poliedra, with its distinctive three-dimensional form, which creates a perfect and refined harmony between the bag and the person carrying it.
