The Utopia Magnolia straps are available in sand and purple while the Utopia Wild Rose straps are available in sand and burgundy. The Utopia Magnolia straps are inspired by the magnolia flower, and their designer, Danica Levy, says she wanted to create a more feminine counterpart to the Wild Rose straps. The Utopia Wild Rose straps are inspired by tattoos of roses. The first is made in sand so that the linear design is highlighted and also mimics the skin as a canvas. The second is done in burgundy to capture the boldness and beauty of the roses. For more information, contact Levy’s Leathers: 800-565-0203, FAX 888-329-5389, email@example.com, www.levysleathers.com.
