A Belated Birthday Present to Me!

I just bought myself a beautiful belated birthday present and I wanted to share! The fabulously unique wristlet pictured above was made by 1000markets artist "Cork and Cotton". Yes, the material the wristlet is made from is CORK! How cool is that?

Below, she describes this beautiful purse:
"Four different cork fabrics are used. Harmony for the main part and strap, and strips of Monaco, Dark Utopia and Casablanca for the front design. The interior cotton fabric is a Joel Dewberry's. A rust colored background with brown and cream pod flowers. Each cork seam is top stitched. A dark brown zipper keeps contents secure."
