2022 Christmas Gift Guide

At Strévé Design in downtown Perth we have been busy creating a new Gift Guide for you this holiday season. We know how difficult it can be to find just the right gift. I have curated a few groupings of my favourite items that I design and make or that can be found in my boutique and made by local artisans. Every piece is of the highest quality, made with love and made to last!

Think of this guide as a wish list and you can contact me at 613-267-0230 directly to purchase, place a custom order, or just to ask any questions you may have. The guide has also been created to let your imagination dream up your perfect customized gift.

We will be offering complimentary delivery to the Ottawa area this year, thanks to my partner Bill.

Scarves

We have a beautiful selection of women’s scarves at Strévé Design in downtown Perth. The perfect gift, no need to worry about sizing.

A model wears the Violet Mauve Stripes Silk Infinity Scarf

Violet Mauve Stripes Silk Infinity Scarf

Style Notes: The Violet Mauve Stripes Silk Infinity Scarf is printed on luxurious 100% Silk Satin. The rich and vibrant colours give a hand painted stripe pattern. Also consider pairing this print with purple, navy, marine, cobalt, black, and white.

Luxurious silk has a beautiful drape but is never bulky. This makes the infinity scarf perfect for draping once, twice, and three times around your neck.

This four season natural fabric is fully breathable and is warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Capes

Our women’s capes are a perennial favourite at Strévé Design in downtown Perth. Like scarves, capes tend to be one size fits all.

Collage Full Grain Leather and Suede Cape in copper, black, with teal accents.

Collage Full Grain Leather and Suede Cape

SKU 04191235 BBrT

$1,595

One of my most popular cape silhouettes is one size and looks good on tall and short women. This is a one of a kind piece of wearable art; custom order exactly what you want!

Style Notes: The collage design is freehand cut in an artful manner and appliqued. Pieces of suede have been hand painted in metallic coppers, teals and golds to combine all the colours together.

The tailored collar is a face flattering shape and the zippered front closure adds a sporty and functional element to this design. Two bound pockets in the front are perfectly placed for functionality.

The suede / leather cape functions as a coat because it is lined in eco-friendly bemberg lining. Many women find that they can wear these capes through the fall, winter, and spring because the roomy cut allows for a sweater, vest of jacket as a first layer. As the season warms discard the first layer.

Sizing: one size fits all (the cape is 35″ at centre back measure and is a good proportion for all heights. The model is 5’8″)

Content + Care: Full grain lamb leather and suede with hand painted suede in acrylic paints. Dry Clean.

Made in Canada in an ethical and sustainable way.

This one of a kind art piece is made to order. Please contact me to discuss your specifications and questions.

Handbags & Purses

A woman needs her handbag wherever she goes; choose something special at Strévé Design in downtown Perth.

Full Grain Leather Square Envelope Bag with Swirl Quilt Design in Curry yellow

Full Grain Leather Square Envelope Bag with Swirl Quilt Design in Curry

SKU 01080921Cu

$149

Style Notes: The perfectly proportioned design in curry is the closest to my heart because this is the first style of handbag that I created in my business. The inspiration was a red lamb leather bag that I bought in a tiny boutique in Milan, Italy after I graduated from Ryerson.

The top flap of this bag is held in place with a brass magnet and the textural quilting plays perfectly against the black leather trim. This functional bag holds a fat wallet thanks to the side gussets and measures 9.5” wide by 9” high and 3.5” side width at the fullest part of the gusset. The 3” tassel creates the perfect feminine touch! The textural element of my signature quilt design is just the perfect touch.

The double strap is ⅜” wide and is cut as a cross body strap measuring 52” long. If you are taller than 5’9” or shorter than 5’3” you may wish to have your strap cut longer or shorter. The strap can also be cut to a regular shoulder length (not a cross body). The standard measurement for this type of strap is 45”. Please let us know the length of strap that you prefer when you place your order. This Canadian made bag can be customized.

Content: Full Grain Leather. Lined in full grain suede. Zipper pocket for cell phone or keys.
