April 30, 2012 - PRLog -- New York, NY, May 01, 2012 - Eco-friendly handbag line Canopy Verde is going animal-free with a new collection of Violet and Slate handbags from convertible clutches to everyday satchels, and totes. Made with organic cotton, wood detailing, chemical-free embroidery, and animal-free alternative leather, all styles reflect the brand’s focus on offering an environmentally conscious, fashion-forward product at accessible price points ranging from just $79 to $199.

For the newest collection, founder Linda Wong drew inspiration from a variety of sources, from the familiar urban beauty of nearby Prospect Park to the minimalist sophistication of mid-century Danish design. Her two toddlers also inform the versatile design of her collection. “My bags are designed to meet the needs of a working professional, busy mom on the go, or a group of girlfriends planning a weekend out of town,” says Wong. All of the styles are designed to be sustainable, stylish, and practical.

This latest collection is also completely animal free, using a polyurethane material that has the same luxurious feel of real leather. Organic cotton is used as the main fabric and the embroidery is free of AZO, a potentially harmful chemical common in many fabrics.  The dyeing process is also certified to be free of chemicals and harmful substances by OEKO-TEX, the recognized international standard for textile safety.

Wong believes Canopy Verde offers a unique point of view – a well-designed handbag that can be used for work or play, a manageable price point with all styles under $200, and an eco-friendly philosophy toward sourcing and production. The collection has a strong emphasis on details, with unique wooden trims, a signature pop of orange in the lining, and versatile pockets inside and out. One of the signature styles, the Cassia Weekender, has a wire-frame opening, inspired by a traditional doctor’s bag. A smaller version, the Cassia Mini, is also available.

The philosophy of the brand can be summed up in Wong’s words, “We continue to take a thoughtful approach in balancing the desire for beautiful accessories, the mission to make a more responsible handbag, and the goal to offer it at a price point that is not exclusive.”

The new website ( is also launching in time for Earth Month.
