ERIBÉ are delighted to be part of The Fashion League's first exhibition, The Forgotten Art. The Fashion League is a new international fashion platform for independent brands and up-and-coming designers. They believe in connecting talent, cultures, and reaching out to a broad audience through fashion.

The Forgotten Art exhibition will be an unconventional exhibit of conventional pieces at the Veneer gallery in Glasgow, Scotland this month. Handcrafted bags and knitwear will be exhibited alongside rarely seen early artworks by Flora Parrott. The Fashion League are celebrating age old techniques that date back as far as the 19th century in order to preserve and encourage these unconventional ways of creating. Heritage techniques are endangered and many artisan techniques are threatened with extinction. The Forgotten Art explores aesthetics, cultural significance, and heritage by honouring and dedication to the way in which, not just artwork, but also everyday items are made. ERIBÉ will exhibit alongside Manual and Flora Parrott.

The Manual Co.

Introducing our fist M.F.A.M. collection of leather goods. Theses products, as well as art pieces, draw inspirations from the XIX and XX century. Following traditional leather-craft techniques and methods that are over 100 years old, they are handcrafted with a passion for quality and strength. Each one of them, with traditional details and classic colours, celebrates the history of the leather craft.

Flora Parrott

Her work often features sculptures, installations and films using raw materials and provocative imagery that is tranquil yet sensually stimulating.
