The Betsy Handbag - Eco-Camel

by O-my-bag

£90.00

The Betsy Bag is a small stylish leather handbag that can also be used as a large purse or clutch bag. Not too big, not too small, carry the Betsy as your ideal going-out bag that’s big enough to hold your wallet, keys, phone, lipstick and more. The leather bag has an adjustable leather shoulder strap that can easily be removed for use as a clutch or large purse, and on the inside there are two credit card slots and a zip pocket for other everyday essentials. Available in Eco-Camel and Eco-Dark Brown, the handbag is handmade by a fair trade organisation in India using eco-leather. Eco-leather is a unique kind of leather that is tanned without harmful chemicals and the skins come from local Indian cows. This adds up to a cleaner and safer tanning process and reduces carbon footprint. O My Bag was created by Paulien Wesselink in 2010. Paulien believes that everybody loves a great bag and great bags are hard to find. Since she had a hard time finding the right bag - basic, elegant and a little old school, she decided to make her own bags (click here to see the rest of our bag collection). Click here to read more about O My Bag in the Designer & Makers section of our Journal.

THE DESIGNER

O-My-Bag was created by Paulien Wesselink in 2010. Paulien believes that everybody loves a great bag and great bags are hard to find. Since she had a hard time finding the right bag - basic, elegant and a little old school, she decided to make her own. Paulien travelled to India in Mid 2012 to find manufacturers, as leather is one of India’s biggest export products.

A large part of the collection is made with eco-friendly leather, meaning no harmful chemicals are used. Poverty rates in India are very high so providing work is hugely helpful. Paulien decided to only work with producers who are aligned to the World Fair Trade Organization and provide excellent conditions to their workers.
