This handsewn leather owl purse is perfect for storing coins, and other little bits and pieces. It has a main pouch, and a detachable front pouch (velcro). It can be fastened using the poppers which have been sewn in.
The purse can be worn around your neck, thanks to the attached length of wool, or simply popped into your handbag.
As an animal-loving vegetarian I only ever use second-hand animal products IE from charity shops. The materials for this particular item were sourced from a furniture company who were preparing to throw their sample books away. Rather than allow the materials to simply go to waste, I extended it's usefulness, and decided to make upcycled accessories. Although I personally object to using animals for their flesh/skin, I would prefer to utilise any 'left-overs' as I think it would be a shame to simply discard something so precious (part of an animals body).
