Spectacular combo of fair trade craft and leather upcycling!
This unique crossbody bag integrates a beautiful South African hand-beaded embellishment* with leather that was upcycled from outdated leather coats! Exquisite beadwork sparkles against the combinations of worn leather and/or suede. Hand cut fringe suede detail was added to the front panel (black and brown bags only) for additional flair. US army tent interior, interior pocket, magnetic snap closure.
H 10, L 9, drop 22.5 (approximate - they are all slightly different)
*The beaded embellishments on this very special handbag collection were lovingly handcrafted in Kwazaa Zulu Natal, South Africa by an artist named “Honey.”
A rare talent, Honey is able to support her family with her artistry which she sells from her charming shop in South Africa. The South African government also featured Honey as a showcased entrepreneur at the 2012 Handmade South Africa Expo.
Uptown Redesigns is honored to work with Honey to design and produce these one-of-a-kind, fair trade, upcycled handbags.
