Italian leather goods label Valextra has launched a bespoke service for those who wish to add a personal touch to its understated classic designs.
Choose from a wide selection of hides, including classic soft calfskins, grained calfskin and crocodile skin, and 26 colours.
Shoppers can also customise an item right down to its finishing by deciding on thread colours, hardware and piping colours.
Initials can also be added on such items.
Crafted in Italy, small leather goods will take three months to complete, while large leather goods will be ready in four to six months.
Prices range from $550 for a calfskin card holder to $39,700 for a crocodile-skin briefcase.
