We have always had a thing for monograms. There is something exceptional and especially luxurious about personalising one’s special leather goods. Be it perfectly inscribed initials, a date, or a prose, it instantly adds meaning and makes it distinctly yours. Suddenly your beautiful day bag is transformed into a luxurious keepsake, and perhaps even a future heirloom.
Not that personalising leather goods is a new idea. A prestigious practice today, it originated as a way in which to lay claim and ownership. It first appeared in the form of the royal seal, used to mark the reign of a monarch. During the middle ages, artists added their stamp to original artwork. Later it became a general practice, with most households owning their own monogram in order to stake their claim on everything from everyday cutlery and table linen to letterhead.
Today personalisation has returned to its more elegant roots. Royalty still use it to mark their reign, but also bestow it as a stamp of approval on worthy subjects. French luxury brands like Chanel, YSL, Louis Vuitton and Goyard once used their monograms to prevent counterfeit; now it is a coveted stamp of high fashion.
Here at Convict, we like to take personalistion even further. Whilst we love a good monogram, we equally like to inscribe a special date, message, favourite quote or logo. Given social media user names are this generations’ monogram, why not inscribe your handle or hashtag? Be it your Esther wallet, Annette Pouch, Grace Soft Cross Body Bag or Bridget Bowler, whatever means the most to you, we can engrave it.
