FORM, FUNCTION, FASHION
Our concept of luxury goods is changing. Exclusive brands are becoming more available, made for the upper end of the mass market and therefore less desirable.
Todays luxury goods are hand made in small numbers. The makers, on the world stage, are generally unknown. Each item is made individually with care and a passion and has a story to tell. The chain is a short one from the raw materials to the finished item and by purchasing it the buyer has a relationship with the maker.
An awareness of provenance has become important in contemporary luxury goods.
The Tanner Bates brand is known for its speciality leathers and traditional techniques of making.
