The Gabriela Hearst x Madres y Artesenas Tex collection will include four different crochet patterns inspired from a sketch by Gabriela, in different colorways called Fire, Neutral, Phoenix, and Mineral.
Gabriela Hearst and Madres Y Artesanas Tex started their collaboration for the Fall 2021 collection.
The Nina Bag is the original handbag in the Gabriela Hearst collection, named after artist and activist Nina Simone. A structured top handle with a distinctive round pouch that gently unfolds from a turn lock closure. The Demi Bag is the smaller version of the Nina Bag.
Madres & Artesanas Tex has specialized in handmade production methods such as macramé, crochet, and other varied knitting styles. This involves mini businesses that employ up to 200 crafswomen during the high season. Each mini business is led by a businesswoman who guides, teaches and supervises all the processes used in producing the assigned articles.
The limited-edition bags are available exclusively at Gabriela Hearst flagship stores—985 Madison Avenue New York and 59 Brook Street, Mayfair, London; Harrods 87–135 Brompton Road, Knightsbridge, London, and online at GabrielaHearst.com.
