As a hallmark of the quality of natural materials, we embrace and celebrate minor imperfections. Items in this category may have small blemishes in the leather, or other minor faults. Each individual item description and price is reflected accordingly.
Unreleased or working samples used in the design and construction phase, this presents an opportunity to own a piece of Yu Mei history. Some of these are final samples, which are identical to the designs sold in mainline collections; while others are samples in unused leather textures or one-off colourways.
The original Archive Event MVPs, this range of archival styles is produced from leather scraps and offcuts, hardware overruns and general odds ‘n ends. This is an exclusive chance to purchase archival styles no longer in production. Many of these styles are one-offs in the colourways we’ve produced them in.
The most in-demand category of our Archive Events, the Buyback Edit comprises second-life bags that have been submitted to our Buyback Initiative. Aimed at promoting circularity and extending the useful life of Yu Mei products, these preloved bags with plenty of life left in them have been refurbished, repaired and refreshed. Buy, use, recycle, relove. We’re proud to announce that this year’s selection of Buyback bags is the biggest yet — thank you to our community who have submitted in the name of circularity.
