New PINATEX handbag collection!
So happy to announce the release of my Pinatex handbags! There are actually four separate designs here, one is an extra special 2 in 1 tote plus insert that turns into a light crossbody bag. No more messy switching bags and forgetting your wallet! These have been (as always) hand crafted with careful attention to every detail and made with earth kind pineapple leather alternative Pinatex. It’s got a really unique texture, it reminds me of elephants but of course no animals are harmed to create this. It’s strong, has a leathery feel to the outside and a felted wool texture to the reverse. It is waterproof so will hold up brilliantly in a shower of rain and can be cared for and refreshed just like real leather. You can read more about this wonderful new leather and vegan leather alternative here in my ‘sustainability’ section. Or you can read my article on vegan leather as I question just how eco-friendly it is here. And of course you can browse the collection right here – I’ve pretty much of everything you would want from a handbag/purse so hopefully you will find your ethical AND sustainable bag of dreams 😉
