CASTELLANO ETHNIC ORIGINS - KALEPSU HANDMADE BLACK LEATHER TOTE

 

The Kalepsu tote by Castellano in black is a beautiful handcrafted soft leather made by local Colombian artisans. The time and care that goes into handcrafting each bag is reflected in the finish of this beautiful soft leather tote, which will serve to bring the same pride to its owner over years that the craftsmen felt when producing it. 

Zoonibo is pleased to introduce Castellano Ethnic Origins into our catalogue as they reflect the ethical values and wish to create social change that Zoonibo stands for. They work with the indigenous Arhuaco people in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in the northern, caribbean part of Colombia and help to preserve the ancient textiles techniques that they use to make thier famous all-natural fibre Mochila bags.

    BAG TYPES GUIDE

     

    Are you struggling to find the right bag type for your next handbag?

    It's great you've found our beautiful range of ethical handbags but now you need to choose the right bag size and bag type that is right for you. From Totes to Hobos to Clutches - we have you covered with our style and size guides (with infographics).


    BAG TYPES AND STYLES

    Below is a visual representation of the different types of handbag models that are commonly available from most bag designers. Bag Types differ between designers and often overlap, for example, some use Totes for Shoppers, some use Clutch for Evening Bag, etc. For this reason we group the bags into the following categories on this store. 

    Handbag Types and Styles Chart

     

     

    TOTES, SHOPPERS AND SATCHELS

     

    Great for the everyday and for women on the go, the Tote, Shoppers or Satchel are usually the centrepiece bag of most women's lives, especially for those living in the city who don't have the luxury of keeping everything in their cars and need to carry a little extra with them on the tube or in a cab.

    The large and spacious nature of the Tote Bag enables you to grab what you need, throw it in your trusty tote and leave worry behind that you have left something at home when you might need it with you.

    The Tote bag is often used synonymously with the Shopper. And for this reason we combine these two popular categories into one Collection - Our Ethical Totes Collection. 

     

     

    CLUTCHES AND EVENING BAGS

     

    Clutches and Evening bags - we love them. They scream chic and the promise of a great night out. Why are they so often used interchangeably?

    Well, traditionally the Clutch bag is a subset of the Evening bag, a bag that would be usually only used in the evening. However clutches have become increasingly popular for women in business to carry an Ipad and other essentials, which in years past would have probably been tucked into a Filofax. (If you don't know what a filofax is, good for you - ask your mum!). The clutch has no shoulder straps and therefore is held (or clutched) in the hand. The evening bag styling is usually combined with a very thin or delicate strap as to not detract from the ladies outfit. These may be worn lightly over the shoulder or the strap unused and carried like a clutch.
