Bottletop's Co-Director Oliver Wayman discovered a stunning silver chain mail bag with a distinctly 1970's Paco-Rabanne feel in Brazil. Featuring an irresistible lightweight material, the bag consisted of upcycled aluminium ring pulls held together by crotchet.
The bestselling â€˜Bellani', (named after Waymans mother who discovered the technique) generated a new wave of international publicity and demand that paved the way for the current Bottletop own brand collection, the production of which now supports artisans and their families in Brazil.
