🌻🌇Betty has arrived! She’s the first large version of my classic purse design, she holds it all! She’s a total sunset girl, with all the rustic, dusky colors and feels. Lots of earth tones, a deep oxblood burgundy leather paired with a ruby floral leather, and a fuzzy, soft acorn brown inside. Along with swirly painted color, the materials are so full of texture, I wanted Betty to be a feast for the eyes and fingers!
She has two full width interior pockets, one in oxblood red and the other an a nutty acorn brown. The strap is an adjustable woven textile, sturdy and adorned with shiny brass hardware.
✨The body of the bag measures 11” wide by 10” tall by 3” deep
✨The strap adjusts from 30” to 48” long, perfect for shoulder or crossbody wear and is 1.5” wide
👉How do I care for my handmade leather pieces?👇
Why isn't your leather waterproof?
All leather is a natural skin, it retains moisture, gets dry and can warp and crack without proper care.. Just like us ;)
For our tooled and painted vegetable tan pieces we use only the best eco & health conscious finishing products - eco-flo environmentally safe stains and varnishes. These varnishes are water-resistant but by no means waterproof.
For any of our pieces, remove before bathing, swimming, showering or hand washing. if your piece does happen to get a splash on it, blot it dry with a soft absorbent cloth immediately in order to lessen any adverse affects, then condition.
On all pieces, I add a conditioning creme to keep it supple and flexible. This is a wax based polish that really helps protect the piece from the elements.
You will want to condition your pieces over time as the coats I've applied wear away. You can use conditioning cremes like Fiebing's Aussie Leather Conditioner to keep your pieces supple and to rejuvenate them... This cream is a combination of natural and synthetic wax emulsions (with bees wax) and does an amazing job!
