My Moon – Butterfly Luna Moth Leather Bag OOAK by TheButterfliesShop

210.00 USD

This is my little work of art!

Butterfly bag in soft Italian leather. Completely made by hand, cutting each piece of leather without molds or masks.
Leather is sewn, piece after piece, with patience and love.
This bag takes me three days of work to be completed.

Created taking inspiration from a vintage image of one of my favorite butterflies: the Luna Moth or Actias Luna, Nearctic Saturniid moth in the family Saturniidae.

The base is brown, with pale green wings.
Pale yellow, brown and light brown details, with light brown antennas!

It measure about 48x40cm. The strap is long about 105 cm.

It is lined with unbleached cotton and closed with an ivory metal zip on the back.
It has a brown soft leather inside pocket.

Perfect for any occasion.. so romantic! One of a kind.

Please note that the leather I use for my belts or bags comes from factory off-cuts.
I love to recycle and transform these pieces of leather into quality items that are functional and stylish.

So if you’re interested in something like it, maybe in different colours or size, please contact me for a custom item (prices may vary).

I’ll ship the bag within 3 days of receipt of PayPal payment with registered airmail, that is trackable and safe.
