I’m so excited for today’s giveaway, which features a chic, versatile clutch from eco-friendly vegan handbag company Canopy Verde.
I haven’t been able to put together a comprehensive holiday gift guide this year, but I’m always keeping an eye on beautiful, unique vegan items that can serve as memorable holiday gifts. The Carroll Clutch from Canopy Verde is a perfect option: it’s fashionable, and it can be used a multitude of ways—as a foldover clutch, iPad case, or a bag-within-a-bag. The possibilities are endless!
A little more about Canopy Verde: it’s a Brooklyn-based, all vegan handbag line that combines classic design with an eco-conscious philosophy. I was lucky enough to connect with the company’s founder, Linda Wong, earlier this fall, and I was impressed with her passion, her commitment to quality, and the integrity of her bags. Linda’s philosophy is that less is more. In her own words, she doesn’t like owning a lot of “stuff”–what she does own, she wants to be well-designed, timeless, and practical.
Linda’s background is in the fashion industry, where she was dismayed at the waste she observed from season to season. Part of the appeal of starting her own brand was a chance to create new processes. She enlisted the help of a former colleague in Hong Kong, who now owns a factory, and the two women chose methods that cut down on waste and allowed them to reuse materials.
I love supporting vegan and eco-friendly businesses–not to mention businesses that are women-owned. So I’m thrilled to be chatting about Canopy Verde with you all today, and offering you not only a giveaway, but a special holiday gift promotion!
For a limited time only, when you spend $199 in the Canopy Verde online store, you’ll get a free, $75 Carroll Clutch in a color of your choosing (indigo/gunmetal, indigo/orange, or stone/espresso). (You can check out all of the color combinations here.) Better yet, you’ll also get free shipping on the entire order. You can read all of the details about the promotion here.
There are tons of wonderful handbag combinations you could choose, and you can turn all products into gifts, or you can purchase one gift for a loved one and keep one for yourself. I definitely recommend the Canopy Verde Cassia Canvas Weekender Bag.
It’s a roomy, structured, and incredibly versatile shoulder bag that features a canvas body and faux leather details. It’s the quintessential “everything bag” — gym bag, overnight tote, computer/work bag, or a super cool baby bag. I’m the proud owner, and I use the bag every single day, going to and from yoga, running up to campus with my books and laptop for class, or toting around folders and other materials to and from work. It’s attractive and comfortable, and it’s durable enough to handle all of the wear and tear it’ll get when you use it each and every day!
Linda is also generously giving away one free Carroll Clutch to a lucky winner over here at The Full Helping. This is an international giveaway, which means that my readers overseas (as well as in Canada and the US) are welcome to enter! The giveaway will run for two weeks, and the lucky winner will get to pick out a Carroll Clutch in a color of his or her choice. Enter below!
On that note, I wish you all a lovely weekend. See you on Sunday for a little weekend reading!
