This leather Madina Tile Anita tote is reversible and was created by NewbarK, a luxury collection of handmade shoes and handbags with a chic, simple design aesthetic, for Wear LACMA. The tote is made of supple leather with printed lining inside. NewbarK was launched in 2008 by stylists and sisters Maryam and Marjan Malakpour. NewbarK shoes and handbags exemplify a streamlined yet contrasting use of high-quality materials, crafted in an artisan factory in Los Angeles. These aesthetics make NewbarK's creations look stylish, simple, and very comfortable.
The designers were inspired by an ancient mosaic tile from the museum’s permanent collection seen here. This tile was created in the 15th century in Iran or Central Asia and is part of LACMA's Madina Collection of Islamic Art.
