Just last night I had a dinner party at my house to bid farewell to one of my best friends. It was classy and swanky with lots of food and drinks. Wine is the most ideal choice for any dinner party and a big bottle was brought by one of my friends. To my surprise, when the bottle was finished my friend grabbed the cork and put it in her purse. I asked her why she did that and she simply stated that she collected them. I’m sure it’s not uncommon to hear of people collecting the corks from wine bottles but for a moment it surprised me. You always hear of people collecting shoes, baseball cards, or even cars but corks? I had never heard of this before but I instantly thought it was interesting! She proceeded to tell me that she collects them and puts them in a jar as decoration in her house. So I guess corks have a fun use to them once you’re done with your bottles.
Interestingly enough, my dinner party was yesterday and today I stumbled upon the Kara Ross Prunella “Cork” Clutch and I loved it! So now corks aren’t just used as decoration but they are used for clutches too. I’ve seen cork wedges before but I can’t ever say I’ve seen a bag that was covered in cork. This is a great accessory to carry around for a wine tasting or perhaps to match your cork wedges. It’s definitely a unique accessory to own especially since we see cork in shoes all the time. If you own any shoes that feature cork you can now have a bag to match them! Cute!
You can purchase the Kara Ross Prunella “Cork” Clutch at Neiman Marcus for $650.
