Exquisite champagne-toned beadwork sparkles against the combinations of rich brown and tan vintage leathers. A hand cut fringe detail was added to the front panel for additional flair.

*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.
