For the past 27 years the Toshiki and Maryszka line has mostly focused on creating leather, shearling, and wool coats. However, every once in awhile, we experiment in the studio with different stitching, or different skins, and do small collections of bags. 
Below are some small cases, mostly about 7" in diameter, with different examples of quilting the leather on a stiffer padding than we normally use in a coat or jacket.


This group are cylinders created in a beautiful calfskin done using techniques as in making shoes. They actually have a "sole" which they sit on. The tops are supple lambskins with a cinch closure.
