The collection, entitled Eco Ferragamo, feature five day bags in the Italian label's signature style - think chic, soft leather in classic shapes. The difference? These bags have undergone a tanning process that uses natural products instead of the the usual, environmental unfriendly metal elements, making the leather biodegradable and water-resistant. The dyes used contain tannins made from tree bark and the linings are made from sustainable hand-woven hemp, a much greener choice than cotton.
Reassuringly the whole process has also been certified by German institute SG-Mark who ensure that no environmentally harmful substances are used.
So you can invest in the must-have accessory of the season with a clear conscience.
The range will hit stores in February as part of Salvatore Ferragamo's spring/summer 2009 collection
