Art For the Cure Floral Purse
The high-quality natural cork used to make this cork handbag was hand-harvested from trees that are only harvested every nine years, and then was stacked to dry and transported to the manufacturing factory. The cork was then steamed in water and flattened, and the cork that was not used for wine bottles was compressed into a thick cork fabric roll.
Then, a thin layer of cork, about the width of a piece of paper, was shaved off of the cork fabric roll in order to make the cork exterior of the bag. The cork was sewn together with cotton fabric to create the interior lining. Then, the rest of the bag was molded and stitched together.
This cork handbag is our own in-house design for our collaboration line with Art For The Cure. It is small but large enough to hold your daily necessities, as well as simple, natural, and always in style, with one large interior compartment. It is a perfect size for everyday wear on the go. It closes securely with a front snap closure, and has a long shoulder strap for easy carrying.
