Last weekend of August took Riina O on a trip to somewhere new! We were invited to take part in Asia´s largest art festival - Design Festa in Tokyo, Japan.
This semi annual two-day event offers different art work and design, celebrating the freedom of expression and bringing together painters, fashion designers, singers, dancers, illustrators, photographers and many more talented people. What a delight!
Glad to announce our new leather bracelets are finally here!
In the recent months we have undertaken some serious product development to perfect the design specifics of our new Leeanne bracelet and expand the colour selection. It is to our great delight to exclaim that it has at last been achieved and the bracelets are now available at our online boutique and with a selection of stockists around Europe - and making an appearance in Tokyo next weekend! Stay tuned for more info!
The bracelets come in one size, fitting around the arm with circumference up to 17.5cm and made of thinner and more flexible leather than before.
Leeanne has also got a "little sister" Leah - a very exclusive limited edition line of skinny bracelets, available only online.
My Australian friend, road and track cyclist "It girl" Leeana-Kate James is now sporting one on her races. #WhyBeNormal
The bracelets come packaged in elegant Riina O box with free shipping worldwide.

Today the goal of the Glovers Guild is to preserve the century old traditions while mixing it with 21st Century business and charitable work. One of the charitable projects is the annual Student Glove Design competition, to which this luncheon was dedicated.
Held at the Drapers Hall I was mesmerised by the grandeur of the building. Built in the 18th-19th Centuries it looks utterly royal and has been repeatedly used in movies (such as "The King´s Speech", "GoldenEye", etc) as the Buckingham Palace doppergänger.
At the lunch for about 200 people I had a great opportunity to meet and talk to several members of the Livery a...
