Spectacular combo of fair trade craft and leather upcycling!
This unique tote integrates a South African hand-beaded embellishment* with leather that was upcycled from an outdated leather coat! Vibrant colors and patterns of beadwork pop out against the dark black leather and suede. A soft layer of hand cut fringe was added to the front panel for additional flair. US army tent interior, dual interior pockets, magnetic snap closure.

*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.
