The Story Behind The Bag:

With every aspect of the Porto “Anchor Me Safely” Carryall being unique, it is truly the definition of exclusivity. This hand-crafted top-handle bag took over 400 hours to complete, integrating rare vintage fabrics, six varieties of Portuguese cork, and hand-milled walnut fixtures. An original Ashley Alves painting features the Hibiscus Vine and Anchor symbolizing the connectivity of harbor life and security in new ventures. They represent those who nurture strength and faithfulness regardless the weather. The sale of this handbag will help to provide facility renovations and school supplies for the young boys of Picos Youth Center on Santiago Island, Cabo Verde.
