About

Sewing High Quality Bags and wallets with Lots of Love

Hi,
My name is Norma I. Agrón.
I've been sewing since I was a little girl. My grandma and mom taught me. Even while studying engineering in College I took some time to sew my own clothing. Later on I made clothing for my two daughters.

During 2012 I researched and taught myself about the right way to create bags and how to accomplish different results to produce unique bags that last. I've found that sewing handbags puts together my love and knowledge of math, geometry, color theory, sewing and creativity to make something very useful, beautiful and long lasting.

My bags are made professionally from my home studio. I only use high quality materials for bags that will not only be beautiful but will last. I mainly use cork leather and cotton fabric. The result is a product that will make someone happy and proud to carry their belongings in a very stylish and well made bag.

LEARN ABOUT CORK
Cork is harvested from the Cork Oak tree without having to cut the tree. When the Cork Oak has reached 20 years of age, the bark is stripped from the tree by the hands of a highly skilled harvester. That tree is then marked so that it will not be harvested for another 8-10 years. The Cork Oak is the only tree that benefits from the removal of its bark and, since it regenerates, it is truly an eco-conscious and sustainable natural resource. In fact, the same tree can be harvested every 8-10 years for over 200 years! When the bark is harvested it actually prolongs the life of the tree. Once harvested, the tree absorbs about 5 times the CO2, making harvesting an important process in reducing greenhouse gases.
Once the cork is harvested from the Cork Oak it is boiled, dried, shaved into thin sheets and sealed with a non-toxic sealant. These slices are then backed with a fabric support backing. Cork "fabric" or "leather" won’t crack or crumble. Once the cork fabric is complete, it is strong, flexible, stain-resistant, water-resistant, hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, lightweight, incredibly soft, and flame retardant. Cork leather production is chemical-free. So cork "leather" is a great eco-conscious and vegan alternative to animal leather.
To keep your vegan cork bag or wallet in good shape, you can wipe it down with a clean gentle cloth, a little liquid soap and water.
