Haute Eco Label: Canopy Verde + Exclusive Discount

Canopy VerdeAmong the finalist selected for the 2009 Independent Handbag Designer Awards, Linda Wong, designer of Canopy Verde, was chosen in the category of Best Green Handbag. Recently launching her first collection this past fall, Linda was determined to make it one of the greenest brands out there by examining every aspect of eco-friendly production down to the last detail. Everything from the lining to thedewberry1 stitching was taken into consideration. The bags are made of Organic Bamboo/Cotton which was dyed with special OEKO-TEX 100 Certified Dying Process. They are then finished with chemical-free embroidery, chrome-free leather and wooden hardware, which give the bags their signature look.

Given Linda’s Chinese roots and her upbringing in Taiwan, it is personally meaningful for her to have the opportunity to encourage Chinese manufacturers to be more environmentally responsible. All of Canopy Verde’s materials are sourced locally, which helps to eliminate the transportation impact and also spurs demand of Chinese-made eco-friendly materials.
