Mel Boteri is a product of years of shopping frustration in a marketplace over saturated with "one size fits all" merchandise.
Founder Melanie Mueller personally struggled to find exclusive, yet sophisticated pieces which would meet her individual needs. Finding she was not alone, Melanie launched Mel Boteri in the Fall of 2009 with a small collection of custom design handbags to provide a one-of-a-kind shopping experience for both men and women. With their first showroom opening in Atlanta, Georgia, Mel Boteri will bring a full line of custom products to both U.S. and international markets.
Mel Boteri and Hideoki Bespoke are driven by the same values: the vision to consider every detail, a dedication to expert craftsmanship, and the commitment to luxury and sophistication. In a form opposite to fast fashion, both Mel Boteri and Hideoki Bespoke believe in the value of creating distinctive, quality items that reflect the unique personality of its owner.
"When collaborating with Hideoki Bespoke to design their line of leather goods,” begins Melanie, “it was more than simply creating a collection of bags. The process entailed looking into the aspirations and lifestyle of the Hideoki Bespoke client to create pieces that not only compliment their unique style, but also define who they are as sophisticated and accomplished individuals."
