I don’t know about you, but I always get super excited whenever a new handbag designer hits the scene. I just love creative new ideas. And, being the environmentalist that I am, I especially love creative new ideas that come about in an eco-friendly manner. That is why I am so proud to present to you Muratori Designs (Luxury… with the World in Mind)! The company was founded by Julie Berard, who was able to align her love of fashion with her respect for nature in order to bring us a unique collection of luxury handbags. So not only are these handbags gorgeous, but they are made by a company that is environmentally conscious as well!
I do want to stress, however, that Muratori handbags are not vegan (like so many other eco-friendly handbags are). Instead, the company utilizes vegetable-tanned, chrome-free leathers. The production process for these leathers is much less harmful to the environment than other leathers. In addition, the linings of these handbags are made of either organic cotton or hemp. But it is also the little things that this company does to lessen their carbon footprint that I think are really cool. Whether it’s using only high efficiency light bulbs or purchasing electricity from renewable green energy sources, they are doing everything they can to help protect the environment. And, as if all of that wasn’t enough, Muratori also has a handbag recycling program!
