Eco Friendly

Rattan, the beautiful hand woven material used for the body of our handbags is a very earth-friendly material. Sourced from the rain forest, it can be harvested year after year without hindering its survival and continued growth. As a naturally growing vine, rattan needs the trees for its growth. Rattan and the demand for products made from rattan, place positive pressures towards conservation and maintaining the forests for future generations to enjoy.

Testimonials

Laurel style handmade rattan handbag with orange leather accents. Eco-friendly, beautiful and durable. Purchase for $200

I love my bag! It has tons of room, plenty of pockets for organizing, and it looks great on my arm. I like that my tablet fits in it nicely as well.

Aspen style handmade rattan handbag with red leather accents and bamboo handle. Purchase for $150

Love my Aspen, the pockets inside fit my cards and a separate pocket for iphone. Like that I can have the bag on my shoulder, flip the clasp, reach the items I need and re-clasp without taking the bag off my shoulder. The red leather shoulder band allows the purse to hang at a high waist height, good for viewing what is inside when open. I have not been using the bamboo handle, but may with certain outfits in the summer. The bottom of the bag has brass feet which balance the bag when set down. Lovely.

I ordered this purse for my mom’s birthday. After I placed my order Carole sent me an email saying that it was out of stock, but they should have it in time to ship. Carole followed up with tracking information and the purse arrived the morning of my mom’s birthday.

My mom loved the purse, especially the inside divider and the two strap/handle options.
