    Default Eco Friendy: Beth Springer Handbags


    I just discovered a eco-chic designer that I must tell you all about: Beth Springer!

    Pictured above is the Jelli Clutch, one of her latest creations -- which can be spotted over at Tiffini Dooris.com It's the perfect size shoulder bag dresses up and dresses down. This limited-edition, highly sought after tie-dyed suede is gathered along a hidden frame to give it a feminine shape and lined with vegetable dyed, organic, hemp. Optional tortoise chain strap. Lightweight. Easily cleaned with a suede brush. Measurements: 12" L x 8" H, Strap Length: 21.5" + Strap Drop: 9". $376

    Here's a bit about Beth Springer and her process as a eco-friendly handbag designer:
    - using no extraneous hardware. Metal feet are absent on the bottom of my bags because 1) those little metal feet use our precious natural resources, require a highly toxic process to coat, and do not biodegrade 2) feet are redundant on my bags because the leather I use can sustain long years of use without wearing through.

    - using all remnants. I endeavor to use the entire hide. You can find note cards, ribbon cuffs, and one of a kind purses at my studio in Venice- all made with waste materials. Come on by!

    - using no filler- most leather bags today use a thinner leather to save money, and then back that leather with vinyl. It is a hidden environmental disaster. Most Beth Springer bags "stand on their own".

    - with 100% cotton linings - adding 100% organic hemp/cotton linings to several styles starting with the Spring 2008 collection. Check out our ecovertible the trim is reclaimed leather - that means that I saved this scrap leather from the land fill and made something beautiful from it. It is also lined with organic hemp linen lining.

    - with vegetable dyed leathers

    - the tags are made from recycled paper and attached with organic hemp cord. I ship in reused boxes whenever possible, so the boxes are ugly but the world remains beautiful. Please recycle or reuse them. I do! (I reuse stuffing and packing, too.)
