This summer we’re stepping out of our comfort zone and experimenting with new technologies while fully embracing flimsiness as rule. The result: the most fun you can squeeze into a sun-loving tote! The Ciclo Summer Bag is a spacious tote, unlined, made of premium vegan leather. It’s ultra light yet durable, and arrives with a zip pouch for your smaller essentials.
About the brand: LEE COREN designs are Inspired by a mixture of two strong elements in my life, urban surroundings and the need for escapism and a breath of fresh air. The collection features handmade screen printed fabrics and original prints from scenery captured on camera transformed into versatile essentials, built to last but never boring.
“I source and produce locally and ethically, using cruelty-free, vegan friendly materials, and when sourcing leather replacements I always choose high quality, Italian made, cotton-backed microfiber PU (Polyurethane) which is less harmful to the environment then regular solutions. I believe it matters. I’m passionate about creating smart and exciting pieces, that will travel with you wherever you go.”
