This modern take on a vintage classic is perfect to add a little retro flair! The beautifully unique look of cork leather lends itself to the vintage vibe. This petite custom designed bag features an oversized antique brushed bronze kisslock closure, piping detail, and top handle. There is also a removable crossbody strap. Each piece is individually handcrafted in my home studio.
Cork leather is a truly sustainable and environmentally friendly choice, in addition to being durable, lightweight and water-resistant, with a wonderfully soft feel.

Each piece is individually crafted in my home studio using professional techniques and equipment, always placing quality over quantity. All of my patterns are custom designed by me and reflect my passion for vintage bag design.
I am a one-woman small business and member of the Craftsmen Guild of Mississippi in leather work, specializing in environmentally-friendly cork and cactus leathers. These incredible leather alternatives are sustainable, durable and water-resistant.
Having always been enamored with vintage bags, my Blue Dog Avenue line is a modern take on retro classic designs. Every bag I make is handcrafted solely by me from start to finish, including the creation and designing of my patterns. All of the materials are carefully cut by hand and then individually sewn in my home studio, giving the utmost attention to each and every detail.
I strive for a perfect balance between the aesthetic form and the technical function when designing my work. I want my pieces to be seen as much more than just bags or wallets, but as an overlap of design and art. I feel that I am creating wearable art and I handcraft each piece with the care it deserves.

Both cork and cactus leather can easily be cleaned with a gentle cloth, a little liquid soap (such as Dawn) and water. Alternatively, an alcohol-free baby wipe can also be used.
