CASHHIMI's Colorful Exotic Skin Handbags and Shoes at their New York Showroom

I was invited to see the new CASHHIMI collection at their showroom in New York. 
Upon arrival I was greeted by Jamila, the lovely Director of Sales at CASHHIMI.
She gave me the grand tour of their new collection of colorful exotic skin handbags and newly introduced shoes. 

One of my favorite pieces was the above red snake skin bag which went along with the blue polka dot dress that I was wearing.

CASHHIMI was launched by a Turkish designer named Cenan Abas Sel. The name CASHHIMI is derived from the initials of her name, the surname of her husband, and the first two letters of her sons names.  

Cenan chooses her materials from a vibrantly colored array of exotic skins, crafting a prototype that maintains the highest quality for which the brand is known. Exotic skins include python, snake, crocodile, fish, polyester and leather varieties from Turkey and Italy.

From sketch to finish, design to manufacture, each CASHHIMI bag is handcrafted and produced under the same roof in Istanbul.

I couldn't resist trying on the red snake skin shoe which matched the red snake skin bag that I was so in love with. Ironically the shoe was the exact shape and size of my favorite black heels that I was already wearing. I personally can’t stand wearing shoes that have less than 5 inch heels so these babies were just perfect!

I also loved the golden CASHHIMI logo on the top of the shoe and how Cenan chose a black heel instead of going with an all red design. The color contrast gives the perfect opportunity to mix and match the shoes with a selection of wardrobe colors.
