The My Conscience, My Choice Network
I don’t like owning a lot of “stuff.” What I do own I want to be well designed, timeless, and practical in the best sense of the word.
So I created Canopy Verde, a line of eco friendly handbags that are inspired by many things – my love of mid-century Danish design, the feel of my beautiful Brooklyn neighborhood, and a philosophy of making something in the most earth friendly way possible.
I have seen firsthand from working in the fashion industry how much waste gets generated with each season of product – everything from pages of color printouts to yards of leftover fabric that end up in a landfill. Starting my own brand gave me the freedom to create new processes and avoid the same old practices.
