A gorgeous handmade purse in striking mustard yellow cork.
This item is made completely by hand and nothing is rushed to ensure a high quality result. The purse is hand sewn with contrasting forest green Irish waxed linen thread using a traditional saddle stitch, which will give added strength and durability. The top and bottom edges are machine sewn with cotton thread. Finally the purse has been finished with matching water based edge paint and two brass Sam Browne stud closures.
Inside the purse is fully lined with cork fabric giving it a luxury feel, and there are four slots for cards and a pocket for notes and receipts. There is also the potential to carry some mobile phone sizes- please check measurements.
These wallets are incredibly soft made from high quality cork fabric and are very lightweight too.
The high quality cork fabric is manufactured with a cotton and recycled polyester backing.
Cork is easy to clean and will last a long time. It's as durable as leather, and unlike leather it is hypoallergenic, anti-fungal, water and stain resistant, and dust, dirt, and grease repellent! Cork is harvested from the bark of the cork oak tree once it reaches 25 years of age and can be taken from the same tree around every 9 years for the duration of the trees lifetime (150-200years!) making it a sustainable choice.
All of my products are vegan friendly including glues and edge paints, which are also water based.
The purse will be wrapped in recycled tissue paper and can be sent directly to the recipient. Just leave a gift note and I will hand write it and post to the delivery address given.

-No two pieces of cork are alike so pattern placement and orientation will vary.
-Although every effort has been taken to capture the colour of the purse, it may look different from screen to screen.
