Evelyn Handbag

Evelyn Handbag Designers Meghan Parsons and Manuel Opp of jack&marjorie combine Italian military surplus materials (wool blankets, parachutes, and webbing) with feminine materials like vintage lace, brocade, and buttons to create one-of-a-kind handbags.  We love their Evelyn handbag for its sophisticated marriage of materials.

Introducing jack&marjorie to us is Beklina, who runs her namesake family-owned and women-operated boutique that hand selects the best sustainable styles out there. 

Beklina recommends pairing the Evelyn handbag with black skinny leg organic Loomstate jeans or an ivory alpaca wrap dress with tall brown leather boots.

Fun fact about Beklina?  She’s obsessed with peacock feathers, and she draws a picture of a bird on every package she sends out for safe traveling. 

$150 at Beklina.
