Nancy Gonzalez bags are known for their superb craftsmanship and use of exotic leathers. To Nancy, exotic skins are a blank canvas where the possibilities are endless. Skins are sourced from farms around the globe, and Nancy and her team use laser cutting techniques to create more advanced patterns and designs. Nancy says, “ Precious skins are like gems; each is nature’s distinctive creation and must be cut and polished depending on their intrinsic forms. It is this collaboration with nature that fuels my imagination and is equally my biggest challenge.”
