A substantial part of Margit Platny’s work is based on her interest in the coexistence and affinity between humans and animals. The artist draws much of her inspiration and energy from these relationships and the emotions associated with them. Platny’s intention is to question the anthropocentric philosophy and to capture the heart and soul of the animals she paints; she wants to give a voice to the voiceless, introducing viewers into a world where animals speak for themselves about their state and humans’ relationship to it.
Every design of „Le Maniglie dell’Amore“ conveys the artistic features of Margit’s paintings www.margitplatny.com with a contemporary and unique style. The aim of the designer is to offer women the option of buying a distinctive aesthetic item without compromising on ethical responsibility and environmental sustainability. Each bag is a reflection of the designer’s philosophy. Excluding the use of leather and other animal-derived materials is the artist’s authentic choice, as well as an important statement in light of the current threats to our environment.
For her creations, Margit has decided to use cork leather, a natural, eco-friendly and innovative material that grows in the beautiful island of Sardinia. The excellent quality of this embossed cork adds texture, while conveying the positive energy of a natural and animal-friendly material.
Therefore, each bag can be considered as a piece of wearable art. Each and every detail of these bags is designed lovingly, through a creative process that closely resembles painting. Moreover, all the bags are exquisitely hand crafted in Italy.
