This purse is made out of the recycled antique book cover of Beautiful Gardens In America.

All items were assembled by hand. The spine was reinforced and the fabric adhered to the sides using special glue, so you have a durable purse with an antique look. The book cover has been coated with a special sealant to prevent wear & tear and is partially water resistant. The fabric has also been treated to repel stains and is also partially water resistant.

But remember, most of the books I use are over a hundred years old, so please treat them well! As antiques, most books show wear along the edges and on the spine. I have treated them against further wear, but when purchasing one, remember that the purse may have blemishes or signs of wear from their lives with previous owners!

I am always looking for feedback on my work so please feel free to contact me with any comments! I hope you love this purse as much as I do.

I also do custom orders at no additional charge, so contact me with any requests or send me your favorite book and I’ll turn it into your favorite purse!

I will fix any naturally-occurring damages ( I.e a busted seam, broken clasp, etc) to the purse for up to 30 days after the day of sale. Just contact me within that time and send me the purse.

If you are dissatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please don't hesitate to message me!
