Dunlin New York has recently revamped its Williamsburg storefront by bringing its artisan workshop into public view. Now visitors can see the pieces as they are made. The shop decor conjures up the nostalgia of a 19th century leather salon, where patrons are invited to talk with the designers over a glass of wine.
The brand has become known for their unique raw approach, classic style and versatile lines for both men and women. Designed and crafted in Brooklyn by Shiho Nagashima and Ramana Goldstein, the pieces are each created with strong attention to detail, from hand-finished leather to custom copper and bronze-casted hardware accents.
The new addition of the rustic workshop has been seamlessly integrated into the motif of the store. The bags are designed and sewn in one area, separated from the showroom by a steel window frame that Shiho and Ramana salvaged from an old Brooklyn factory.
The resulting space is a tribute to the tradition and romance of true craftsmanship.
