Watch How This Sculpted Leather Dior Book Tote Bag Is Made

The luxe purse was first unveiled on the house’s Cruise 2021 runway.

Back in July 2020, Maria Grazia Chiuri unveiled her Cruise 2021 collection for Dior with a slew of dream handbags and accessories. To celebrate the range, the luxury house has unveiled how its universally-loved Book Tote bag is made.

Inspired by a trip to Argentina, the designer came up with the leather purse featuring tooled detailing throughout. The main technique takes influence from the country’s craftsmanship of personalizing saddles using cut-out drawings. Through hours of laser-cutting and hand-chiseling, the leather pattern is revamped with meticulous floral designs that add a unique effect. The material then receives several coats of patina for a deep brown hue, and the process is complete with three-dimensional rose motifs that are assembled in the final stage.

Watch all of the details behind the tooled leather Book Tote above. The handcrafted bag is available for purchase at select Dior stores with prices starting from $6,700 USD.
