Understanding the process of creating a Cetuvi underscores its value. Aside from every aspect being crafted by hand, these handbags comprise only the finest materials.
The process commences with conjuring the design. When it comes to creating Cetuvi Originals, this means determining what material will be starring in the collection, be it wood, carbon fiber, aluminum, you name it. While some woods we feature prove rare and exotic by nature, all are procured via sustainable practices. Jefferson’s familiarity with cabinetmaking and construction makes him no stranger to knowing the difference. We only buy exotic woods from lumber suppliers that work closely with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), ensuring no forests are being denuded so you can have an awesome handbag. That being said, whether the wood is rare or in abundance, you can be certain that it’s always the real deal, processed so thin that it can almost be considered paper by the time we’re done with it. We then sketch and layout by hand the individual designs for individual handbags. This medium, be it the aforementioned wood, canvas or other medium from a collaborating artist must never exceed 3/32 of an inch, as to keep the handbags lightweight and delicate.
