Monica Förster's Stitches and Buttons collection comprises three handbags, which she designed for Palmgrens after approaching the store with the idea of creating her first range of bags.

"I contacted Palmgrens because I wanted to take on the challenge of letting my knowledge of the furniture world meet the fashion world," said Förster. "Palmgrens is an obvious partner because they merge traditional craftsmanship with contemporary features."

Stiff panels of leather form the rigid front and back of the bags, with buttons attached around the edges.

The large and small designs have curved handles either side of their open tops, while the medium-sized variation features a flap to close it and wider-set handles.

Each vegetable-tanned bag comes in two colour combinations. Red-brown coloured leather is paired with black buttons and beige stitching, while all black and all beige models are also available.
