The flora collection celebrates the floral landscape found on the islands of Cabo Verde. The exotic vegetation that cascades along the ten-island archipelago is among the most beautiful. Hibiscuses are all over the country. What makes Hibiscus so special is that their bloom only last from sun up to sun down. The most beautiful bloom is priceless because of the urgency of capturing in the 12 hours of its existence. The collection celebrates the epic blooms.


The Story Behind The Bag: This beloved handbag from the entire collection series. This bag took over 175 hours to complete. All embroidery was done completely by hand from a real life hibiscus bloom. The embroidery truly captures the magic of the moment. The woman who wears this will feel beautifully unique in every way when wearing this organic beauty. The tassels are reminiscent of the roots we all have that make us whom we are as the flowers roots do the same.
