Dreaming of late summer trips through Bologna, the hazy September light playing on the terracotta tile roofs, streets lined with mango and papaya clay painted walls slightly bleached from the sunlight of Mediterranean summer, lush green pergolas lining the streets, roof top gardens and verandas over spilling with green vines, creating a visual medley of papaya, mango, and deep green hues, 1:2 is born.
Contemporary and timeless in aesthetics, the collections are trans-seasonal, interchangeable, and complimentary to each other, giving you the creative freedom to update your HALM bag in a personal curated style through unique combinations of new straps and small leather goods.
Each bag is assembled from the finest French, Italian and Swiss suppliers of components; including genuine, full grain leathers sourced from an exclusive French tannery, Italian custom loomed cotton-linen lining, bespoke stainless-steel hardware, signature HALM Italian woven handles and straps. In addition, HALM also specializes in bespoke, exclusive designs.
“Having been brought up with the approach that you should try to buy the highest quality you can afford and invest in timeless pieces, I couldn’t quite find what I was looking for - the right combination of function, visuals, feel, materials, process, and origins involved in making a bag...‘What, Where and How’ is so important to us. After years of research, design development, learning the trade (and buying and dissecting a lot of handbags!) ...HALM came about as a limited-edition line of luxury genuine leather bags.” - Hanna Ransjö, Creative Director and Founder of HALM.
