What is your bag made out of?
The bag is 100% made with vegan leather and eco-lining. In the manufacturing of the vegan leather, the 100% of the water is treated and 70% of it is recycled. The solvents used are recovered through distillation and reprocessed. In addition to that, the factory uses natural gas lowering 30% the volume of carbon emission, and it uses energy produced by steam for the production of the materials.

From where do you source your materials?
Guadalajara, Mexico

What is your design inspiration & why is working with green/eco friendly products important to you? Are there Instagram accounts you find inspiring?
Liberte bag is part of Eleutheromania collection, a desperate call for freedom from what is right or wrong for the society towards the expectations of a recently married woman. The shape of the bag comes from the representation of life - life is about cycles, that never go too far away from its own essence. This shape also represents the cycle of reusing and it's a shape found on the sacred geometry of the Earth. Our entire planet contains a magical geometry. Working with green/eco-friendly materials is not just important but basic in the production and manufacturing of each of the accessories of my brand. It is key to be responsible for our society and environment, creating high quality, durable and timeless handbags.IG accounts that inspire me:@ZoeKravitz@thesustainablefashionforum@sandracamposnyc@imranamed@karlamartinezdesalas
