The collaboration between Casdagli Cigars and the French cigar accessory maker Les Fines Lames continues by introducing yet another custom branded cigar accessory: the Punch Bracelet – Villa Casdagli Eye. It is a limited release item launched under the Casdagli Cigars’ luxury cigar and lifestyle accessory subbrand Villa Casdagli Collection at this years Intertabac trade fair held September 14-16, 2023.
The Punch Bracelet – Villa Casdagli Eye is the continuation of the popular earlier collaborations between the two brands. Each bracelet is decorated with two Nazar eye-beads accompanied by striking 8mm malachite beads and carry a silver charm representing the special relationship formed over the years between Casdagli Cigars and Les Fines Lames.
The term Nazar is an eye-shaped charm believed to protect from the evil eye – the negative energies and bad luck. It originates from Africa and the Middle East dating back 3,300 B.C, referring to the curse passed onto someone by an envious onlooker.
The beautiful and fashionable Punch Bracelet has a hidden sharp 7mm cigar punch cutter and is easily adjustable to the wrist size of the wearer.
The collaboration Punch Bracelet – Villa Casdagli Eye is a limited and numbered edition (99 items) retailing for 138 EUR. It is available for purchase at online shops of both partners and in the near future through selected distributors of Casdagli Cigars.
“I remember the Nazar amulets decorating my grandfather’s house in Mykonos, so they always carried a special place in my childhood memory. A big thank you to Pierre and Pablo in agreeing to marry these meaningful eye shaped beads to their beautiful and practical punch bracelet. A perfect foil to those that feel malevolent towards our wonderful hobby,” says Jeremy Casdagli, the Founder and Co-Owner of Casdagli Cigars and Villa Casdagli Collection.
“In recent years, we’ve forged remarkable collaborations with Villa Casdagli, a brand that holds a special place in my heart. Jeremy Casdagli, a pioneer who placed his trust in us in the early days, remains an inexhaustible source of inspiration. As they say, third time’s the charm, and it’s with great enthusiasm and gratitude that we collaborate with the Casdagli family for the third time. May the mystical eye of Nazar watch over us, ushering in a tide of boundless good fortune and happiness for Villa Casdagli and Les Fines Lames!,” says Pierre Jourdan, Founder and Co-Owner of Les Fines Lames.
