There are times when we decide to expand the range and this years first addition is the Lorenzo leather trunk.
First and foremost, a trunk is meant to safely transport your precious belongings. The craftsman must therefore ensure durability and precision in every aspect of the trunk’s construction, from the metal structure, coating, slats and corners that contribute to shock absorption.
We wanted to keep the design relatively simple and elegant so chose a soft leather to clad the metal trunk and supple oil pull up leather for the trims. This not only protects those valuable possessions but is also beautiful to hold.
For the trunk’s inner frame, Fine Lines predominantly chooses special wood, known for their supple, light and resistant properties. The craftsman covers the wood with cotton drill fabric and leather, but not before signing the trunk with a Fine Lines hot stamp.
While machines are used for the more mundane tasks, the steps that require creativity are all handled by the craftsmen. The trunk is secured with metal locks and additional straps with metal studs for easy opening and closing.
Age-old techniques and tools are still used to this day. Here, a craftsman ensures the finishing is perfect with a device that smooths the leather without damaging it. The whole process from start to finish can take up to 4-5 weeks due to the amount of care and effort put into it.
