Our beautiful "Serena" handbags are handmade for us by our creative team of artisans in Northern Thailand. Like our teak leaf bags, wallets and pouches our Cool Banana range is made from banana leaves that are gathered after the banana harvest, sun-dried then soaked overnight and heat smoked to make the leaves nice and flexible, The soaking and heating helps to high light the colour saturation in the leaves, then the leaves are are arranged in larger sheet and sundried again to mend the leaves together. Finally, they are sealed with a non-toxic film to preserve the natural beauty of the Banana Leaf, while at the same time adding an extra level of durability to the leaf.

Leaf Leather is a new and totally cruelty -free alternative to leather.  It looks and feels just like leather but is totally natural and sustainable, made from fallen leaves no trees have been felled or animals hurt. Every hand that is involved in the process of making these unique bags has been paid a fair and living wage while working in a safe and clean enviroment.
