Delight recently featured a purse crafted from old ties. What a strange idea. If I wore used, worn neckties sown together and draped over my shoulder, I would wonder if my friends thought I couldn’t afford a new handbag.
Having started, owned and operated a men’s necktie catalog (some 10+ years ago) with my husband, you can bet we have hundreds of old ties that he won’t wear any longer. Too bad . . . I’m not sewing them together!
But if you’re not into carrying used ties over your shoulder, check out the latest, summer handbag from Italy, the Ghibli jeweled beige suede and reptile leather hobo bag from Forzieri. Or the handmade floral embroidered canvas bag with a touch of natural decorated wooden details, giving it an oriental look. My opinion – a much more flattering look you can feel proud of wearing.del.icio.us | digg it! | reddit! | Google!
