Stuart Weitzman Softway, Handbag of the Day
As cork is making a larger showing in the world of fashion, moving from the base of wedge heels to become posh jackets and other apparel items, it is only natural to see that it is being used in the accessories market, as well. This Stuart Weitzman Softway bucket bag is part of the designer's summer line. Not only is it made from a super-soft natural cork, but it is accented with smooth calfskin at the seams, strap and pockets. It is a great alternative to a heavier, more delicate all-leather bag for the warm summer months. The bag measures 14 x 12-in. Because the summer products are already moving out, the bag is on sale for $201, instead of its list price of $335.
