Join the circular revolution
The Verdonce recycled cotton crossbody tote bag is handcrafted from recycled cotton sourced from a local Spanish mill. You can be part of the change with this sustainable and eco-friendly material. Leave behind the outdated linear model that ravishes resource intensive virgin materials only to throw them away later. Instead give new life to natural cotton fibres that already exist. This is the sustainable circular model that makes the most of every single resource. Recycled cotton has all the benefits of cotton while it has extremely low impact on the planet: 0% direct water usage, 0% use of chemicals and 0% direct CO2 emissions.
Three ways to carry
How you carry the crossbody bag is up to you and the situation you’re in. In any case it always looks elegant and chic. It comes with two types of handles, both are 100% natural hemp fibre which, by no accident, is one of the most sustainable materials available. The shorter top handles allow you to carry it sleekly by your side. The other option is to carry the bag using the long shoulder strap. Here you have two different possibilities: casually slung over the shoulder, or over your head and across the body. Carrying it crossbody means you can be totally hands-free.
A great allrounder
Big enough and sturdy enough to carry even a 15″ laptop thanks to the resistant fabric, lining and strong hemp straps. At the same time it’s really comfortable. The hemp straps that are strong yet soft to the touch to avoid chafing. A great allrounder this gender neutral tote is an ideal companion for work, study, travel and day-to-day.
Carefully crafted inner
We know that you want a bag that looks great but is also well made and practical too. So we included a decent sized inner pocket where you can store smaller items to have at hand such as your mobile, your keys or a purse.
The entire bag is lined with quality, recycled cotton with a stripe pattern that gives it a very original touch. The craftsmanship is first rate.
Local and ethical production
In line with our Verdonce philosophy of sustainable living, we have designed and crafted this bag to be durable, timeless and effortlessly stylish regardless of the latest trends. Resistant, ecological and minimalist.
Like all Verdonce bags, it is proudly handcrafted with passion in Madrid with sustainable materials of the highest quality. This bag is produced as part of our Knitting a Future project with local craftswomen in vulnerable situations. We think you’ll agree that is makes a great companion for a more eco and healthy lifestyle for you and our planet.
