Pipetree Leather Goods

Alexandra Lauro, Brooklyn native and creator of Pipertree Leather Goods, interweaves fragments of Earth and stone with lanyard and leather to create stalactite adornments both of nature and in nature. Pursuant to artisan tradition, each piece is purposefully conceived and meticulously composed. Her creations are inspired by everything from the rolling plains to the sandy stretches of the Sahara , the marigold shrines of el Dia de los Muertos to the mysticism of Santeria. She believes good luck occurs not by chance, but by design. See the entire collection here.
