Be Lively Mini Cross Body Bag | Rustic Cork + Faux Leather
Cork shavings removed from the bark of the cork oak tree are transformed into ultra thin sheets to produce cork fabric. Cork is a natural and sustainable material harvested from cork oak trees every nine years without harming or killing the trees. The bark of the trees naturally regenerates, making cork a renewable resource. Cork is also recyclable and biodegradable.
Natalie Therése chooses faux leather for her collection that is made from degradable polyurethane and contains pigments and chemicals that comply with EPA standards. Polyurethane faux leather offers a greener alternative to both vinyl (PVC) and to animal leather. PVC is not degradable, leaches toxins in landfills and emits carcinogenic dioxins when incinerated. Animal leather production is a chemical-laden process.
Cork bags are lined with 100% Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified cotton, which is produced in a Fair Trade Certified facility. The methods used to grow organic cotton have a low impact on the environment, and the materials used are free of toxic and synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Low-impact dyes and pigments are used in the printing process of these fabrics.
