Luxury isn't necessarily all in the label, and independent makers of exotic-skin handbags are out to drive home the point.
Designers are increasingly introducing collections produced from exotic skins — ranging from high contemporary to designer price points. They include the brands Hunting Season, Tonya Hawkes, Khirma Eliazov, Mitchel Primrose, Adriana Castro, Analeena, Beirn, Farbod Barsum, Thalé Blanc, Monikha B., Seth Sobek, Gelareh Mizrahi, Kara Ross, Barbara Boner and Celestina.
