I live and work in Park Slope, Brooklyn with my husband and two kiddos, Will and Maya. I started Canopy Verde after searching for a well-designed, eco friendly bag and not finding much on the market. The inspiration behind Canopy Verde comes from many sources - growing up in a frugal Chinese household where nothing was wasted, a love of mid-century Danish design, and the practical bag needs of a multi-tasking mom. When it comes to sourcing and manufacturing, we take a thoughtful approach about how to generate less waste, what materials leave the smallest footprint, and how to balance everything so the end product is beautiful and affordable. Canopy Verde bags have the following features: • Organic cotton and eco friendly dyes as certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) • A more earth friendly vegan leather trim (a polyurethane material that is PVC-free). • A thoughtfully designed interior with multiple open and zippered pockets I hope you will love the feel of the wood details and the pop of orange that greets you every time you open your Canopy Verde bag. Canopy Verde is not about the next trendy “it” bag. It is about creating something that is classic, well-designed, and lasts season after season.
