Sonia Guzzo

Sonia Guzzo's leather handbags distinguish themselves for their highly sculptural quality and their raised, textured surface. Sonia is very intrigued by the technique she developed after experimenting with the media and she founds very fascinating how the leather adapts and responds to it, each time giving as a result a unique and organic piece. Her initial approach is that of a textile designer in which she specialised during the degree course she undertook at Chelsea College of Art and Design; thanks to this her bags do truly stand out as unique and original. To her specific textile design and craft expertise she has been able to add the required skills and accurate craftsmanship of the bag making artisan. Her handbags appeal to those ladies with a strong sense of personal style, beyond what fashion dictates and that want to distinguish themselves. In every style function is subtly and discreetly combined to the artistic quality of each piece.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 2 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
