Wooden Handbag Collection

Monica de Almeida (Marte) is a designer from the north of Brazil who was inspired to design these handbags after one her mother had.

The stylish Marte handbag collection is made by a small cooperative of men and women in the north of Brazil.
They are made from reclaimed “pitia” wood, precisely cut and hand-sanded until perfectly smooth.
The pieces are then stained, a tiny hole is made through each piece and they are then sewn together. Finally, the artisan applies a glossy finish.
They take great pride in their craft and the work provides income for an entire community.
These are timeless accessories that you can use for years to come.
