Eco Chic: Evolve45 Handbags

model-with-butternutEvolve45 was born out of a need for sustainable fashion in the form of stylish “green” accessories. Evolve45 has succeeded in making a natural handbag fashionable. The central theme of inspiration for designer Sara Marston was a belief that if everyone could evolve their consumption slightly, say forty-five degrees, the resulting contribution to a cleaner, safer, environment, would be enormous. But this forty-five degree change should equal progress, not compromise, in the world of fashion.

Evolve45 uses refined 100% organic cotton linings and rich, natural fabrics, such as Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned LeatherTM Consortium. Evolve45 also offers “vegetarian” bags, made of environmentally responsible fabrics. Whether you’re out on the town or running a few errands, Evolve45 is an eco-chic way to carry the essentials. I love Evolve45’s concept which is bringing the “sexy little, black dress” to all of its bags.

The magnetic closure at the mouth of the bag, allows enough space for the average sized laptop to be carried in style to the boardroom, along with a stowaway pair of stilettos and a makeup kit for an evening of play. Yet, it is small enough to allow you to easily maneuver through a crowded sidewalk or into a crammed elevator without bumping into anyone along the way.

It transitions easily from day to evening. However, it’s the bag’s subtle details like its soft pleating and patterned borders which really make it stand apart. The Urban Satchel has an expandable zipper opening and two-side pockets, while the inside contains three pockets, one with a zipper. The price range is $500 to $800. Visit for more information.
