If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ve seen my posts about JORD’s beautiful wooden watches. I love those watches, they are always my go-to when my apple watch isn’t going to cut it. That’s why I was so excited to learn about JORD’s new vegan leather handbag collection!

This collection of vegan bags and wallets isn’t like any others I’ve ever seen, and here’s why. JORD uses a cork-infused vegan leather that gives a beautiful cork-like texture to the bags. They are harvested from cork oak trees, which can be safely harvested every decade for 200 years. As the bark regrows on a cork oak tree, it pulls tremendous amounts of carbon dioxide from the air and produces greenhouse gases. They call the end product Suberhide™, and its cork-like properties are not to be confused with the stuff that keeps our wine fresh. It is stain-resistant, water resistant, flame retardant, hypoallergenic, and maintains its shape after compressing or creasing. Not to mention BEAUTIFUL.
Think about it, our wallets live in our purses, which are filled with who knows what (how many women have significant others who are afraid to look in their purses? 😂), and they are constantly being pulled out and shoved back in, while scraping against keys, sunglasses, nail files, or whatever else you might have in your bag. You want it to be durable! Suberhide™ resists scratching and tearing and is maintains shape after compression or creasing.
As much as I was eyeing their gorgeous cross body bags, I decided it was time for a wallet and opted for the Eila Shadow Black and Silver zippered wallet. I was really stuck between the black and the natural & gold, but I have been wearing a LOT of black lately so I figured I can use it with more of my outfits. One thing I love about it though is the pop of red around the zipper. It adds some fun along with the “corky” texture to make a look that I absolutely love!
