Guilt free luxury bag line launched

Friend of Red Ochre, Esin Akan, is launching a range of ethical, sustainable and desirable Olive Leather Bags. The material is luxurious, plant-based, and biodegradable! It’s an innovative hardwearing material that looks and feels like leather, and not plastic as many “faux” leather alternatives tend to. These guilt-free luxury bags are suprisingly affordable as they don’t come with the large markups of other brands. The range is multi-purpose and designed for the modern and conscious urbanite. You can learn more (and get a big discount) at the Esin Akan pre-sale website. Read more »
