Looking gorgeous. A unique handbag.

The Handbag
For over a year I have been prototyping to get the desired result: an elegant wooden handbag. That is strong and flexible, elegant and light. The handbag easily stores your tablet and cell phone, leaving enough room for other personal items.

Inside of the handbag: the best Italian suede.

The Quality
I only use the best wood and Italian leather. The handbag securely closes by means of powerful, invisible magnets. It has three different pockets, one with a stainless steel zipper. Although designed to carry in hand, the handbag comes with an attachable shoulder strap. The wood is finished with a strong two-component epoxy coating, so it can withstand even the Dutch weather.

Three types of real wood (from left to right): American oak, zebrano and walnut. All perfectly finished.

Risks and challenges

The upside of a product made of natural materials, is that every object is unique. The downside of it is that handmade production is time consuming. If you make my dream come true and this project will become successful, I will do my utmost to get you your unique handbag as soon as possible. Please allow me some time to produce and deliver. And your patience will be rewarded. In the meantime I will inform you in all honesty.
